Cloud adoption in the Middle East continues unabated. Our cloud business in the Middle East is growing at approximately 200% year on year. While we see smaller companies can move easily to the public cloud, enterprises prefer a hybrid cloud model. This can be due to cost, data sovereignty and corporate policy. And this preference is not just limited to the Middle East but is a global trend.
Consider these recent stats from Right Scale:
