Today, the enterprise typically uses cloud infrastructure for simple storage backup to cloud data centers over low speed IP networks, trickling the data asynchronously as the network permits. Typically this use case fits small businesses with relatively low amounts of storage. Tomorrow, the enterprise will want to take advantage of lower cost cloud storage for large amounts of storage. It will want a network that can dynamically respond to moving terabytes when the data needs to move — without bottlenecks, security holes or dropped packets. No more sending hard disks via FedEx to the cloud data center.

While much of the industry is focused on what’s going on in enterprise networking inside the data center to enable cloud computing, IT also needs to consider the network that connects the data centers – particularly how these inter-data-center networks need to change to support new cloud use cases and associated network requirements for bandwidth scalability, low latency, security, virtualization and automation. In this slideshow, Ciena is tackling the connectivity issues between data centers, and data centers to the cloud, and outlines 10 reasons why you need a better network to the cloud.
