    Business capabilities, like applications, data and services are moving from on-premise data centers to one or multiple public clouds. While public clouds offer the convenience of as-a-service consumption, on-demand functionality, elastic scale and pay-as-you-go pricing, the network on the other hand does not. Those who have tried the do-it-yourself approach to building a network for the cloud can attest to the challenges of cloud knowledge gaps, slow manual configurations, restrictive cloud limits, and costly hardware investments. Enterprises quickly realize that in order to succeed in the cloud, a new networking paradigm is needed.

    Join WWT and Alkira for this interactive webinar to see how your network can take you to one or many clouds in record time. You will learn:

    • Why enterprises are rapidly embracing multi-cloud
    • What are the methodology and key elements of a modern multi-cloud network
    • How to build a global multi-cloud network with enterprise-grade security and day-2 operations in minutes

  • Eliminate Multi-Cloud Networking Challenges in One Click Recorded: Oct 6 2020 46 mins
    Binu Nadarajan and Julian Greensmith
    Enterprises IT teams usually focus on the effective use of computing and storage services in their cloud environments, often taking networking aspects as granted. While enterprise network teams are tasked to focus on implementation and operation of their on-premises networks, they tend to have less focus on networking and security aspects in multi-cloud environments. Replicating existing on-premise networking technologies and processes into the cloud may seem straightforward, but often becomes suboptimal, with increase in costs. Further, the complexity of networking and security escalate with use of multiple clouds, requiring separate teams for each type of cloud, resulting in higher operational costs with less governance.

    Alkira Cloud Service Exchange (CSX) takes the complexity out of multi-cloud networking. It is a global unified network platform for the cloud era delivered as-a-service. Leveraging a global presence of Alkira Cloud Exchange Points and a revolutionary graphical interface, Alkira offers a standardized networking experience for on-premise, cloud and multi-cloud environments with integrated network services marketplace, operational visibility and governance.
