Deciding on the right connectivity to Public or Private Cloud can be a challenge and in this Free 2022 eBook you will walk away with knowledge to apply to your architecture.  If you are designing dedicated cloud interconnects, hybrid cloud with various hyperscalers regardless of your network expertise, this eBook is for you.  The Cloud Connectivity partners within the network ecosystem all have slightly different nuances with respect to their platform and how they interconnect.  Should you use private MPLS, SD WAN or public internet and what is the latency for cloud interconnects?   These questions are solved in this FREE Downloaded version.

Public cloud or even hybrid cloud interconnects featured in this download specifically covers access to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Compute (GCP).  The main on-ramp for interconnect service across these providers include in this eBook include


We cover the following technologies to consider routing traffic between Public Cloud, SaaS, Datacenters and Remote users:

MPLS to Cloud Connectivity

SDWAN access to Cloud Interconnects

Public Internet VPNs to Cloud OnRamps

ZeroTrust Connections to Cloud including for remote users

Private Layer 1&2 to Cloud & Datacenters

Wireless LTE to Cloud as backup

ATT Netbond:

AT&T NetBond is their version for Cloud Networking providing a highly secure, private network between your VPN and the ATT switched eithernet onramps to cloud onramps.   

ATT Netbond Cloud Providers Availability and limitations should be considered when looking at this service.  Enterprises must weigh the best options here, such as keeping the corporate WAN as is with a new cloud node or seeking a complete remote cloud native option. 

Oracle Fast Connect

Amazon Direct Connect

Google Cloud Interconnect

Microsoft Express Route

ATT Netbond Limitation:

Covered in the Ebook

Enterprises must have an existing ATT MPLS network to take advantage of NetBond and if they do not, establish a private VPN at deployment.  This could pose difficulty for cloud native organizations who do not rely on a traditional corporate WAN for resources.

Equinix cloud connectivity option is their native software-defined interconnect environment used for their customer to establish a quick and easy option to a cloud provider.   The availability is limited to Equinix only datacenters Equinix Fabric helps cloud providers establish private connectivity between their own cloud regions and customer endpoints. It acts as the gateway connection that allows customers to move application workloads and data into the cloud quickly and securely, from wherever they are. This contributes to faster application processing and data access, and a better overall customer experience. From the cloud provider perspective, the value of Equinix Fabric is simple: the easier it is for customers to exchange workloads and data, the more cloud services they’re likely to consume.

Megaport is not a true MPLS providers, however their Megaport Virtual Edge (MVE) has hit the market with big success to the enterprise premise.  It does require specific equipment and an internet connection to route back to OCI, so it is a clean way to reduce tech contracts and stay on one provider.

As Megaport continues to invest in their infrastructure, expect more options
