Connecting Data Center Assets to the Cloud?

Advantages of Cloud Connect from LOGIX

Cloud data centers are expected to process 94% of company workloads by the end of 2021. As companies migrate from on-premises data centers to the cloud, data center network connectivity is the key to productivity.

Let’s look at some of the reasons why cloud connect is essential for your business, and why LOGIX is your best choice of providers.

The Benefits of Cloud Connect

Connecting your infrastructure to a public cloud service provider or private colocation data center demands a robust and reliable connection. Using a public internet connection can put your business at risk.

These are the benefits of securely connecting to the Cloud:

  • Performance. When you can directly connect your cloud resources closer to your data, you reduce latency, which means that your applications will be more responsive.
  • Reliability. On the public internet, millions of people using resources at the same time can create congestion, causing unpredictable fluctuations in performance. A private connection bypasses the public internet to deliver consistent speeds.
  • Network visibility. A direct cloud connection gives you greater visibility into your network. If there is a problem along the line, it is easier to trace and fix quickly.
  • Security. Reduce threats from breaches, data theft, data corruption and distributed denial-of-service attacks.
  • Compliance. Private data center connections make it easier to meet most compliance regulations.
  • Hybrid cloud environments. Most companies are operating hybrid cloud environments, using some on-premises infrastructure and applications. Data center network connectivity creates seamless integration to provide a better experience.
  • Faster deployment. Hybrid IT environments can introduce complexity into the management of connectivity providers. When you use direct cloud connectivity, you work with a single secure connection.

Nearly 40% of decision-makers say that getting better performance in networking is key to their operations, according to the Megaport-commissioned Forrester’s Cloud Connectivity Buyer’s Guide. Businesses that are using the internet regularly for mission-critical business functions need direct cloud connect services. If your business takes advantage of software-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service or infrastructure-as-a-service, a private, direct connection is essential.
