Challenges in Public Cloud Workloads on Hyperscale Platforms


HyperScalers are prone to bringing unexpected billing spikes.


Scalability, while limitless, can further add to bill-shocks due to fluctuations in workloads.


Responsibility of safeguarding sensitive information rests on the cloud users and not the providers.


Vendor lock-ins restrict the flexibility to migrate between cloud providers.

Why Enterprises Are Repatriating Data from the Cloud?

Enterprises repatriate data from the cloud for various reasons, and these decisions are often driven by specific business requirements and evolving strategies. Here are some common reasons why enterprises opt to repatriate data from the cloud:
Data Sovereignty

Data Sovereignty

Organizations may have legal or compliance requirements that mandate their data remains within certain geographic boundaries.

Cloud cost optimization

Cost Optimization

Cloud services come with ongoing costs. Repatriation can help you identify underutilized resources and save on cloud expenses.

cloud security & control

Security and Control

Bringing data in-house or to a trusted provider can enhance security and control, reducing risks associated with third-party data centers.

cloud Flexibility


Cloud Repatriation ensures flexibility to adapt to changing business needs and avoid vendor lock-in.
