Overcoming Cloud Challenges with Multi-tenant Data Centers

Connectivity: a key ingredient for today’s distributed infrastructure

Connectivity is where a modern, richly connected, multi-tenant data center shines. With proximity to high-speed optical fiber paths, you can get anywhere from there—and fast. At the same time, you can protect your sensitive data by keeping it on your own equipment in a secure facility and know exactly where it is. You can deploy workloads where they make the most economical sense and still privately connect to applications running in the cloud. 

A local, multi-tenant data center partner focusing on robust connectivity also has the expert staff to design and implement the network to meet your requirements. An edge data center in a Tier 2 market has the added benefit of bringing connectivity options and speed where it was previously difficult to obtain. When finding a partner with proven expertise, look for following attributes:

Carrier neutral  

To meet clients’ varied connectivity needs, the data center provider should build in a variety of carriers. A network fabric connecting each data center location offers clients their choice of carriers across the entire provider’s footprint.

High-bandwidth connectivity

Data centers should have high-capacity bandwidth of at least 100Gbps. Businesses often cannot get this capacity from their business location.

Private network fabric

Data centers should supply private, low-latency connectivity from every data center to multiple Internet exchanges to enable access to hundreds of providers for a truly global reach.

Software-defined network

Data centers should enable rapid provisioning of services to match the speed of today’s digital business. This is an essential consideration.

Cloud provider connectivity

A multi-tenant data center should provide direct private connections to all major cloud providers and support hybrid and multi-cloud configurations.

Local support

Data centers should have proven expertise in networking and connectivity. A client must have access to knowledgeable staff to help design, configure and manage network connections. This reduces the burden on your existing staff and eliminates the need to hire hard-to-find, qualified candidates.

As the digital revolution continues to accelerate, nobody without a crystal ball can tell where it’s going. A few things are certain, though, and among them is the reality that the days of managing everything from a company’s local data center are rapidly coming to an end. The need to engage and connect to an increasing number of entities is a principle you can count on. Businesses need partners that provide them the agility and expertise to navigate, attack and respond. So, consider how a local multi-tenant data center partner can sit at the core of your business’s digital infrastructure to ensure you’re ready for the challenge. And buckle your seat belt for the ride!
