Tag Archives: Cloud Doesn’t Work Without the Network
Sidera Networks has been steadfastly working with leading infrastructure providers to ensure high-speed connectivity solutions are available between major data center facilities. With more than 100 data centers on-net, Sidera continues to innovate solutions that will benefit customers located within these facilities and ensure greater connectivity between other locations. Today’s announcement by Sidera that it has connected Digital Realty Trust Data Centers in Chicago, New Jersey, New York and Ashburn, VA provides customers a private network solution.
According to Sidera’s CEO, Clint Heiden, “The Cloud relies on high bandwidth, low latency connectivity so that storage, high-end content and media, disaster recovery, and gaming applications are accessible and available in a virtualized environment. The engine of this infrastructure lives in key data centers like Digital Realty’s properties. Sidera’s scalable and redundant network was designed to meet the needs of Digital Realty’s largest bandwidth users enabling real-time data replication and access throughout their footprint.”
As Sidera’s Duncan Puller writes – the Cloud Doesn’t Work without the Network.
Now Digital Realty Trust customers can benefit from Sidera’s Xtreme Ultra-low Latency Network which offers customers direct low latency connectivity to all of the major northeast financial exchanges, as well as Chicago/Aurora, IL, London, UK, and Toronto, CA.

In a blog, written by Duncan Puller, VP of Cloud Services – posted on Sidera Networks’ blog site – Duncan writes about the importance of the network when designing/deploying cloud solutions. Read about it here:
Thousands of companies across America are currently working hard to make sure that they’re not caught flat-footed by the surging wave of cloud services that are rapidly changing how people do business.
As most know by now, “the cloud” has become a catch-all term for a company’s decision to host its data and many of its applications remotely, making use of the savings and technological advantages provided by cutting-edge data centers instead of investing in continual hardware upgrades and training for IT staff.
On the surface, cloud services provide extremely appealing financial economies, backup and recovery benefits and greatly expanded access to important applications for those who happen to work outside of the office. However, the catch for most businesses is that their cloud aspirations don’t match up with their current network infrastructures.
Simply put, the cloud doesn’t work without the network.
