How to connect to Cloud Service Providers (CSP) in this Software Defined world for multi-cloud
Cloud Connectivity questions often asked is “We need to connect to AWS with GCP, what’s the best path? What is the RTT between the two clouds? What is the cost to connect both clouds together?
How long will it take to install our multi-cloud strategy?
Can we have diverse paths?
These are the first questions we receive on a weekly basis when customers need to quickly and efficiently deploy their multi-cloud strategy. This isn’t just cloud-native companies who were born in the cloud, we’re hearing requests from well-known global enterprise organizations.

First and foremost, we need to build the topology for your organization. Unfortunately, there are many different options which exist we can narrow down in minutes for you. What does that mean? Cloud to Cloud, Metro to Metro and Long-Haul connectivity provide nearly a hundred different paths all with varying costs, latency and SLAs which most individual organizations do not have the time or resources to plan out correctly.
Using our Fiber & Data Center tools we can narrow your topology down to several options and solicit bids on your behalf. We’ll look at
Proximity to Cloud Zones
- Route options out of each Zone
- Metro routes
- SD Provider options to connect both Clouds
- Deployment Schedule
- Understanding Deployment Zones inside of the CSP
