Why your customers experience poor cloud connectivity (and how to fix it)
Over the last couple of years the demand for connectivity has changed and entered a new phase. Traditional networks were centered around offices with on premise IT-infrastructures complemented by a back-up solution in an external data center. The most common connectivity solutions were dark fiber, WDM, ethernet, MPLS and IP VPN. Cloud has changed all that.
Network redundancy: a new approach
Customers who are unable to access their data and applications due to a network failure, and their own infrastructure that is down: this is the nightmare of many hosters, cloud service providers and other digital service providers. Redundancy is therefore high on the agenda of all major users of data center connectivity.
The elements that determine network quality
When choosing connectivity between data centers, the first considerations are often the range of the network and the price tag. However, the quality of the network is at least as important. Ultimately, it determines network reliability and therefore your uptime. In this blog we tell you more about the elements that determine network quality.
How the current connectivity ecosystem will impact service providers
What is driving the current evolution of the connectivity ecosystem? Markets are changing rapidly on the back of cloud demand, investments and evolution of technologies. We currently see three major trends that service providers need to keep in mind to stay relevant and meet current and future demand for their services.
