More about Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Enhanced Internet Services and Cloud Connectivity

Published on 22 September 2020, the Cool Vendors in Enhanced Internet Services and Cloud Connectivity states, “increasingly, enterprises are leveraging the internet to access cloud workloads. This introduces networking complexity and application performance uncertainty”.

According to Gartner, “Enterprise workload migration to the cloud is continuing and, in some cases, accelerating as a result of COVID-19. Enterprises are increasingly leveraging internet connectivity from branch locations to cloud resources to reduce cost, increase agility and minimize latency to improve performance. Internet transport is a best-effort service, so there is a concern from many enterprises about how to deliver application performance. Distributed cloud workloads have resulted in increased networking complexity associated with managing branch-to-cloud connectivity”.

The report suggests that organisations “implement SD-WAN with internet connectivity at branch locations for direct access to cloud workloads for optimum agility and lower latency. Mitigate internet performance problems by selecting an enhanced internet service provider to deliver an optimal application experience across the internet”.

The report continues to say that, “These lesser-known yet relevant vendors can address emerging application performance problems and simplify cloud connectivity”.
