Interconnection 201: Blueprints for the interconnected enterprise

Connectivity is critical for businesses today, yet most organizations have a network architecture that was set up years ago and may no longer meet the requirements of modern hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and mobile environments. Interconnection with multiple clouds and networks in central locations, such as datacenters, can be a highly useful option when updating network architecture.  


If we posit that the datacenter is the place where the physical meets the virtual, where clouds and customers connect via networks, then interconnection, peering, and 'cloud' networking strategies in the datacenter will become integral to the overall enterprise IT architecture.


To help enterprises and vendors alike understand, best use interconnection and develop strategies for interconnection, this report seeks to begin building a comprehensive taxonomy of terms and services that constitute the building blocks of interconnection.
