Welcome to the July issue of our Cloud Hosting eNewsletter – if you’re not out enjoying the rare moments of sunshine, hopefully some of our content will brighten your day instead! This edition includes a fascinating article examining the changing relationship between colocation and Cloud, which argues that despite common misconceptions, the two approaches are not incompatible or mutually exclusive. Colocation providers can offer solutions to issues that cloud businesses may struggle with, including data sovereignty and even power management.

In fact, argues Virtus’ Darren Watkins, colo is essential for hybrid cloud environments to flourish: "According to Gartner, large enterprises are regularly introducing a bimodal IT model, in which enterprises use the public cloud for all of their applications that they need to scale widely and quickly - systems of innovation, but also maintaining a private cloud operation for sensitive company data - systems of record. It is actually colocation that enables these hybrid cloud solutions by providing the power, cooling and maintenance services to service the private cloud, as well as the networks and connectivity to deliver access to the public cloud."
