World Cloud Networks Report
Published: May 31, 2016 Content info: 33 Pages
Description

The BRC ‘World Cloud Networks’ report compares cloud application solutions from top providers of cloud exchanges, cloud marketplaces and other cloud-ready networks.

It focuses on service providers relevant to multinational companies - those offering access to most providers of enterprise-grade cloud applications from networks with the greatest international reach.

The report helps network service providers understand the competitive landscape as they seek new revenue streams by offering services to application service providers with global ambitions or to multinational companies. It also helps multinational companies know which cloud applications they can reach in different countries using their existing network service providers, or other network services they might consider, with appropriate levels of flexibility, performance and security.

The service providers covered are: AT&T, BT, Equinix, Global Cloud Xchange, HP, IBM, Level 3, NTT, Orange, T-Systems and Verizon. Most of these have network service backgrounds while others with different backgrounds have built networks between their many data centres.

‘World Cloud Networks’ provides an introduction to cloud marketplaces, cloud exchanges or cloud-ready networks of each service provider and then compares them in terms of applications they connect to, data centre locations, network infrastructure, on-demand access capabilities, end-to-end application performance, security and data privacy.

Comparisons using customer buying criteria are presented in more than 20 detailed tables and charts. These show features of individual services from different providers side-by-side, giving readers an immediate view of how service providers compare in key areas.
