Whether you use the cloud as a fail-safe to on-premises operations or as your primary IT resource, you need to be prepared for a worse-case scenario such as a natural disaster or unexpected peaks in traffic. You or your cloud provider may need to move hundreds of your virtual machines and/or data stores from the current data center to another data center in the cloud — potentially alongside those of many other enterprises. To move these workloads in time to avoid or recover from disaster — without damaging your business — you’ll need a network that can rapidly add and reallocate capacity to your business continuity/disaster recovery 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.
