How Private Connections to the Cloud Help Businesses Grow


Today, the ways you use the cloud have probably expanded dramatically. Cloud has moved way beyond simple storage and can now be used as the foundation for business continuity and disaster recovery, storing large data sets for analytics, and even running business critical applications — live.



Think about how your business used the cloud just five years ago. The cloud was taking off and businesses were starting to experiment with cloud service storage, just touching the surface of what cloud computing can achieve.

Today, the ways you use the cloud have probably expanded dramatically. Cloud has moved way beyond simple storage and can now be used as the foundation for business continuity and disaster recovery, storing large data sets for analytics, and even running business critical applications — live.

However, many organizations have reservations about using the cloud extensively. Some of their main concerns have to do with security, reliability and scalability. Behind these concerns is the fact that until recently, enterprise connections to the most popular cloud destinations has been limited to access through the public Internet. For many, sending data through an unsecure public connection meant they limited to amount and type of data they’d send, even to trusted providers such as Amazon Web Services.
