Connectivity to cloud providers is vital for enterprises to ensure reliability and performance. Together with Google Partner Interconnect, Zayo’s CloudLink can bring the Google Cloud Platform to your location.
Cloud computing is experiencing explosive growth and the majority of enterprises are using applications in the cloud. In fact, a study by RightScale found that 96% of the respondents say that they use the cloud1. This trend is fueled by the ease of accessing a variety of sophisticated business applications via the cloud without capital expenditures or hassle.
The use of multiple clouds is increasing as well. Today, enterprises use an average of 4.8 clouds1. This trend will only increase, so enterprises need to select a cloud connectivity solution that works for their business today and can scale with them in the future.
