Organizations have turned to the cloud to increase operational efficiency while decreasing costs. Recent studies have shown that these same organizations are turning to hybrid cloud infrastructure powered by a mixture of open source technologies for additional flexibility around workload repatriation. Within production hybrid clouds, OpenInfra technologies provide container security, edge nodes, CI/CD, secure private clouds and the largest footprint of public cloud data centers in the world.
