EMA Impact Brief

Kemp Introduces AX Fabric for Multi-Cloud Application Delivery

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) research has found that enterprises are increasingly deploying hybrid cloud and multi-cloud architectures to support digital initiatives and IT transformation.

  • 35% of network managers say public cloud initiatives are a major driver of their decisionmaking today, and another 35 percent say private cloud initiatives are a major driver
  • The average enterprise claims that 45 percent of its network traffic is attributable to public cloud applications
  • Kemp’s new architecture addresses these evolving application delivery requirements

Traditional load balancers and ADCs are designed for static environments where a monolithic appliance serves application services to dozens of applications. The cloud requires something more dynamic and streamlined.
