451 Research Interconnection Series: Questions to Ask When Selecting Workload Connectivity
Hybrid IT, Connectivity in Data Centers
I spent time with 451 Research, Senior Analyst of Data Center Networking, Craig Matsumoto, to get a sense of the trends impacting how enterprises address growing demand for cloud and hybrid IT connectivity with more flexibility and cost-efficiency.
One of the important discussion topics was around the questions you should ask when looking at connectivity to support a particular workload. These included:
- Is Direct Internet Access (DIA) good enough?
- Does your enterprise have a strong internal IT team?
- How many clouds, on-ramps and outside parties are involved?
- How much bandwidth is needed?
Hear why these questions are important from Craig at 451 Research.
