The centralized cloud is too far away for many enterprise applications, but many customers don’t want to manage on-premises at the level of distribution that their applications require.
Application architecture has made huge strides over the last few years as a result of cloud environments, containerization, microservices and other IT innovations. Up until recently, most enterprise applications were centrally based.
