Virtualization and cloud computing have transformed the importance of data center interconnection. Historically used to replicate data from a primary data center to a disaster recovery site or backup data center, a data center interconnect now enables enterprises to load balance compute resources across multiple sites dynamically.
Adaptive selection regarding the best network or cloud provider for your applications significantly reduces cost and risk, while improving service—promoting future flexibility. Choice leads to fair pricing and innovation. Smaller customers with a presence in a carrier-neutral facility can exercise the same buying power traditionally reserved for the biggest customers.
