This IDC study provides an overview of the options available in Europe to connect enterprise customers to cloud providers without using the public Internet, thereby enabling private, secure, performant, and compliant connectivity to public cloud providers. It also profiles leading providers and presents IDC's forecast of spending on cloud connectivity services in Europe until 2019.
"Cloud connectivity will become a cornerstone of many WAN architectures as both cloud and WAN deployment models become increasingly hybrid," said Jan Hein Bakkers, senior research manager, IDC European Telecom and Networking Group. "Private network access to public cloud services is a good proposition for customers and an example of the unique role telcos can play in the cloud ecosystem," said James Eibisch, research director, IDC European Telecom and Networking Group.
