    “Data Center Without Walls” describes an architecture that creates a multi-data center, hybrid cloud environment able to function as a set of virtual data centers from a common resource pool to address any magnitude of workload demand and offer seamless workflow movement. Enterprises will want to access cloud resources anywhere, anytime. Service providers will want to offer cloud services differentiated by state-of-the-art, programmable network access, and economies of scale that leverage their data center footprints. Cloud providers will handle uncertain demand requirements and failover by more efficiently allocating workloads across multiple data centers. The cloud backbone network is the critical link for providing cost-effective scalability, security, and on-demand services that enable the virtual 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.
