Myth 1: Data centers are becoming obsolete thanks to the cloud.

This myth keeps reemerging – that new technologies and the growth of the public cloud are reducing the need or demand for data centers. The reality is quite the opposite: The cloud lives in data centers.

All of this data requires data center space, regardless of whether it’s in the public cloud, a private cloud or a dedicated enterprise data center.
