Cloud Connect: Cloud and connectivity for application performance in companies
One problem faced by organizations as they implement applications and cloud services is that the quality of network connectivity between resources and end users varies widely. Although consumers will pay more attention to application performance in the cloud is not given enough attention to the effects the problems of network performance as latency, packet loss, the in rutamiento among multiple providers , safety and weaknesses of the service-level agreement contracts typical enterprise networks on the performance of cloud services.
There are different models of cloud deployment, the most common is the “public” cloud, in which an unlimited number of clients access resources from third parties over the Internet. They are also “private” clouds for individual organizations, “hybrid” clouds (combining public and private clouds) and “community” clouds, where organizations with common interests share the same infrastructure.
There are different types of connectivity and the best choice will depend on the application requirements and the importance of enterprise applications. Internet provides easier and less costly for public clouds but performance is less reliable network. For private clouds is the virtual private network (VPN) that is more reliable than the Internet. The point-to-point / optics provide the lowest latency and highest reliability and prevent full packet loss, so despite being the most expensive option is the best choice for critical applications businesses.
For companies will be essential to choose the most appropriate network for small differences in network performance can cause large differences in application performance. Customers should look for providers with global reach, high capillarity metro networks, minimum latency between cities, coverage maximum perimeter router and detailed professional and administrative services.

In the coming years, companies continue deploying cloud applications, creating more and more complex and demanding computing data and analytical capabilities. This growth is occurring at an astounding rate and most local IT departments are not equipped to manage these challenges is so valuable the support of an expert as Level 3
The cloud will be increasingly used, according to the study conducted in 2014 by Level 3 on the State of the Cloud, today 36.6% of companies are running external public cloud applications and 50% are involved in some stage of migration, which is why companies should prepare for achieving improved performance, increased security and maximum flexibility thanks to cloud solutions and connectivity that have contracted.
