Cloud Story 1

AN INTERNATIONAL MANUFACTURING COMPANY LOOKING TO OPTIMIZE NETWORK PERFORMANCE AT SPEED

Globally, organizations have accelerated the adoption of multicloud or hybrid cloud environments in recent years. However, despite considerable benefits, IT professionals often face increased complexity in managing the disparate cloud environments - with difficulty moving workloads and data between providers and network unpredictability. In addition, an effective cloud strategy cannot succeed without flexible, reliable, and seamless connectivity to the cloud. 

As the only Software-Defined Cloud Interconnect (SDCI) provider delivering a secure, end-to-end managed service, InterCloud helps businesses simplify and accelerate network operations with a high level of performance and transparency for critical applications distributed across multiple locations and different cloud providers. 

To give you some real-world examples, we are pleased to bring “The Cloud Stories.” – a collection of short-form use cases that illustrate key challenges some of our customers have faced and the InterCloud solutions that have helped overcome them.
