19 Jun As Businesses Push More to the Cloud, Your ISP Connectivity Is Mission-Critical
Businesses are increasingly moving all their applications and services to the cloud.
The cloud has many benefits for companies of all sizes and industries—it provides more flexibility, scalability, and reliability. Cloud solutions also tend to be more manageable and secure for companies that don’t have the budget or capabilities to manage their own on-site hardware.
However, cloud solutions rely on internet connectivity to function properly. So as more businesses transition to the cloud, their internet service provider (ISP) connectivity is mission-critical.
So how can you ensure your ISP can deliver for your cloud requirements? Here are a few factors to consider.
Low Latency and Maximum Uptime
Your ISP must provide a fast and reliable internet connection for your business with low latency and maximum uptime. As such, it’s imperative that they provide Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) rather than public internet—think commercial-grade connectivity as opposed to residential.
Since cloud services rely on the internet and your business depends on its digital assets, having a fast and reliable connection will help you experience the most benefits when moving to the cloud. A provider that delivers DIA and has the lowest latency will be able to support your transition to the cloud and your day-to-day operations.
Flexibility and Scalability
Your ISP should be able to grow with your business as your cloud requirements change. Therefore, if you suddenly need more bandwidth or even need to scale back, your internet service provider needs to be able to handle these demands.
If your ISP only provides a limited amount of bandwidth or makes scaling challenging, your business may not have the connection it needs to successfully implement cloud solutions. Instead, look for an ISP that provides free bursting so you can scale as needed without the hassle.
Diverse Redundancy to Keep Your Business Connected
Your ISP should also provide a redundant connection to ensure that your business stays connected no matter what. So, if your ISP’s connection relies on cables or fiber that are subject to damage, it’s essential to ensure a redundant connection in the event of an accident or cable failure that could cause downtime.
Wireless fiber allows you to bypass expensive installations and the unpredictability of underground cables. Instead, using rooftop access and diverse indoor wiring with a direct path (air), redundancy is created to provide a secure and diverse internet redundancy strategy to support cloud operations.
