Cloud Computing Success Demands the Right Cloud Connectivity


Moving applications and services to the cloud is one of the most effective strategies enterprises can adopt in their efforts to achieve three strategic objectives: increase productivity, operate more efficiently, and reduce costs. However, placing their applications and services in the cloud is not enough, in and of itself, to achieve these objectives. Because employees at every location must have secure, reliable, and flexible access to the applications now residing in the cloud, enterprises also need network connectivity with the cloud. Many enterprises are turning to a private-network approach, one specifically designed to deliver cost-effective reliability, security, and performance, comprising Ethernet and MPLS based IP-VPNs, and backed by strong SLAs.
