As enterprises increase their dependence on clouds, SaaS providers and other outside entities, they can also rethink their networking profiles to regain control of connectivity. A multi-tenant datacenter already hosts many commonly required destinations and can transparently provide connectivity over private links. For hybrid IT and edge computing, this essentially removes the distance to business-critical ecosystems. A cloud on-ramp or a supply chain partner can be just a cross connect away.
The advent of software-programmable interconnection extends reach, giving a colocation site access to many destinations around a fabric of datacenters. This creates economies of aggregation, as the enterprise can enjoy the network effect of being surrounded by connectivity options.
