Cloud Adjacency addresses the very barriers and challenges facing digital transformation programs while delivering pragmatic, proven, de-risked digital modernization outcomes.
|RISK AND CHANGE
|Organizations need to refocus
Technology budgets and delivery prioritize maintaining
|Accelerated rate of technology change
|Lack of resources, time, and focus on digital innovation
|Increased transitional complexity
|Escalating technical debt
Given established technology landscape commitments, investments, and rate of overall industry change / disruption there is risk of the hysteresis cycle in technology refresh programs where intended changes lag investment.
Organizations can leverage established technology and infrastructure landscapes within a cloud-adjacent, digital edge context helping foundation its modernization enablement.
Both, the Oncore Cloud Adjacent Method and Platform help organizations align industry-validated strategies along with established technology delivery models, infrastructure, and investments into a broader digital modernization program.

Oncore’s Cloud Adjacent Method considers a pragmatic program focused on extending cloud-native enablement without compromising on security, network, governance and compliance controls.
Cloud Adjacency encompasses modern hybrid cloud services allowing organizations to maintain control over technology ecosystems while supporting digital modernization streams and minimizing internal disruption to business, resources and operations.
The Method consists of four curated delivery streams, including:
- Enterprise Cloud Foundations
Alignment of cloud strategy and roadmap, governance, security / network perimeter considerations as well as DevOps practices and tooling. At its outcome, Enterprise Cloud Foundations results in lasting, industry-derived perspectives intended to help support a successful, optimized and scalable adoption of cloud delivery ecosystems.
- Data Center Modernization
Infrastructure and Data Center centric review, strategic planning and alignment on extending and enabling existing technology ecosystem systems across public environments. Data Center Modernization provides a three-dimensional perspective of enterprise technology infrastructure considering:
- On-premise Infrastructure and technology elements extending existing investments and reducing disruptions associated with adoption of cloud-native services and delivery;
- Cloud-native applications and workload migration candidates (including dependency mapping);
- Cloud-adjacent digital edge infrastructure services enabling hybrid and multi-cloud outcomes.
- Security and Network Transformation
Natively extend established network and security perimeters across multiple cloud environments and service geographies. Security and Network Transformation decouples traditionally centralized perimeters enabling cloud-scale and reach while extending established security policies natively into cloud providers.
- Workload onboarding and migration
Migration of extensive workloads / large data sets into cloud-native environments leveraging the Oncore DataStream appliance and the Cloud Adjacent Platform.
The Platform is represented by strategic infrastructure services in line with your organization's cloud data path supporting hybrid digital modernization outcomes. It's hosted and managed within Oncore's private environments across Equinix data center metros, including:
- Toronto (YYZ-01)
- Toronto North (YYZ-02)
- Montreal (YUL-01)
Delivered as a fully managed service, UniversalEdge removes traditional complexities associated with supporting hybrid and public cloud interconnection topologies:
|UniversalEdge is a managed high-performance network and interconnection on-ramp, connected with in-market carriers and public cloud providers.
SmartRack allows the extension of established network and security perimeter infrastructure at the edge of cloud service providers. It sets enterprise-specific perimeter services at the edge of cloud providers, extends established security policies, and simplifies the integration of cloud-native ecosystems into established enterprise technology landscapes. SmartRack is available across all Cloud Adjacent Platform Metros.
Private, massively scalable storage at the edge of cloud service providers. Leveraging the S3 object storage protocol, organizations realize single-instance storage efficiencies when referencing cloud-adjacent stored data from multiple cloud providers. All data remains stored in Canada, at Equinix facilities, and leverages both at-rest and in-flight encryption while providing the ability to self-direct individual object and / or bucket-level security policies.
Data Protection Platform
Managed Cloud Adjacent Data Protection of your entire technical estate. We leverage familiar Data Protection interfaces, including VEEAM, Commvault, Avamar, and Veritas, enabling flexible recovery scenarios within Public Cloud resources or your private, secure Cloud Adjacent services.
Secure HCI Compute
Private, managed, dedicated cloud adjacent compute. Secure HCI enables organizations to deploy elastic, secure applications requiring complex integration with on-premises, public and cloud-adjacent services. It delivers a multi-cloud attached hyperconverged infrastructure paired with software-defined networking, high-performance all-flash block storage, and high-capacity network interconnects.
Secure HCI is on-net with UniversalEdge, enabling flexible deployment and interconnection scenarios as well as data protection and storage options.
Secure HCI is available in Oncore KVM HCI, Azure Stack HCI and Vmware vCloud configurations, supporting a variety of enterprise hybrid infrastructure integration scenarios.
