Planning a hybrid cloud implementation? Don’t forget the importance of the network

Almost every company is working on some form of cloud transformation, and we’ve noticed that almost everyone is pursuing a hybrid cloud strategy. Because hybrid sees a wide range of on-premise, hosted and cloud-based services side by side, it will only be cost-effective if you can establish reliable, secure connectivity between the various elements of your hybrid architecture.

Today everything has to be on demand

The network is often forgotten because IT teams are planning hybrid cloud transformation projects. Without properly dimensioned legacy-to-public cloud connectivity, transformation projects can be compromised and run into serious customer experience problems.

“Transformation projects can be paralyzed without properly dimensioned legacy-to-public cloud connectivity”

This is why organizations are now trying to request and order on-demand capacity from the network as they need, reducing traditional constraints such as capex, delays at external suppliers and long project timelines.

From one to multiple networks

By connecting on demand, you can also adjust the bandwidth up or down to suit your project. For example, if you perform a major update on your cloud platform or your IT services go into production as quickly as they are built for the development and testing phase of your project you can adjust your bandwidth based on the (temporary) need.

“By connecting on-demand, you can also adjust the bandwidth up or down to your project”

The connectivity services of Datacenter.com offer all these benefits by giving you complete control: from a single port you can connect to multiple carrier networks, as well as public or private cloud services, turning connections on and off as needed in the service management portal to build your hybrid solutions at the touch of a button. All this in collaboration with our partners.
