What benefits should we expect from SDCI?

As we don't always have time to read use cases, get into white papers or assist at live conferences, InterCloud (Leading Software-Defined Cloud Interconnect pioneer in Europe) tries to provide simple answers to many complex questions.

According to a recent study by Gartner*, within 3 years, 30% of enterprises will use SDCI services to connect to public CSPs. Why?
Repeat after us: business-critical applications require the best-dedicated network infrastructure.

Now, focus on SDCI. Remember this acronym; you may see it more and more. It's a new type of interconnection service that boosts infrastructure modernization. Software-Defined Cloud Interconnect (SDCI) technology is used as a hub to connect an enterprise to a large variety of cloud, network, and internet service providers. To support the use of multiple cloud providers and to support multicloud applications, the same technology can also interconnect two or more Cloud Service Provider without traversing the Internet.
In short, SDCI is the best way to organize an IT infrastructure connected to several CSPs. In other words: to develop a multicloud strategy.


Who says growing reliance on CSPs says the need for agile scalability. One of the main SDCI’s benefits is the wide connectivity it has pre-provisioned from its hub to CSPs. So more growing reliance on CSPs also means more challenges to ensure the performances. A robust SDCI capability also serves as a neutral bridge to interconnect. A new kind of business need for enterprises.


By closely monitoring resource usages by group rather than by origin or destination, or provider, corporate I&O departments can better understand each internal stakeholder's trends and specific issues.


83% * of enterprises indicate that security is the top Cloud challenge. Thanks to the private connectivity, workloads are not exposed to the Internet and external threats.
