Data Center Interconnect

Allow All Your Assets to Work Together with Data Center Interconnect

For enterprises that have two or more data centers as part of their IT network, data center interconnect (DCI) enables those disparate locations to work together, share resources, provide backups and redundancies and pass workloads between one another to achieve business objectives. Of course, all of this requires a fast, secure and dependable connection, often over long distances, making high-speed packet-optical connectivity, in which data is encapsulated in “packets” and sent in fragments in order to optimize delivery speed, the favored method of transport.

“Data center usage continues to grow. The construction of data centers in 2019, for example, is predicted to be a $22.73 billion market. In addition, the public cloud market, considered a key driver for data center growth, will hit $292 billion in 2020.” -Forester Research

Data center interconnect then, takes advantage of the speed and reliability of packet-optical transport to allow for ultra-high capacity, in that a network of data centers connected in this way allows for more data at the user’s fingertips; near-endless scalability, as storage requirements can be shared and reconfigured among all the data centers on the network; and management efficiency, as all data centers can be accessed at anytime from anywhere.

Key business reasons for enterprises to invest in DCI vary by market segment, but the most common drivers include a need for more bandwidth, greater storage capacity, more efficient IT resource utilization, improved end-user access to applications, and simpler data center management, all of which is addressed with DCI.
