Enterprises today must deliver business applications to end users reliably and cost-effectively, and many are choosing to streamline the process using managed software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) solutions. According to IDC, the global SD-WAN market for infrastructure and services will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 93 percent between 2015 and 2020, reaching $6 billion.
One company that recently launched a new managed SD-WAN service is GTT Communications, Inc.

Italy-based network and cloud services provider Enter is working to enhance connectivity, and recently announced a major collaborative effort with Megaport (USA) Inc.

Hybrid cloud has emerged as a top enterprise connectivity trend. In fact, according to a recent study from Right Scale, hybrid cloud is the preferred enterprise strategy in 2017.
While interest in hybrid cloud has been growing for several years, many enterprises are still finding it difficult to get started due to deployment and management complexities. But now, these processes are much easier to handle thanks to a new partnership between leading enterprise cloud solutions provider Unitas Global, global interconnection and data center company Equinix, and Microsoft Azure™.
WAN architectures are very complex. Businesses today face many challenges when building and managing complex hybrid WAN architectures, like difficulty in load sharing traffic across a mix of access connections, complex, static and manual network configurations that make it difficult to map to business-centric requirements and a lack of application visibility and control over connections.
Fortunately, these challenges can be streamlined by working with a connectivity as a service provider like Global Capacity. Global Capacity recently partnered with VeloCloud Networks, Inc., a cloud-delivered SD WAN and industry-leading SD-WAN technology provider. The new partnership is part of Global Capacity’s strategy to expand its global enterprise networking portfolio with software-defined services.
Medical data is one of the hottest commodities on the black market, typically selling for approximately $14 to $25 per record. Because of this, healthcare providers must take advanced measures to protect electronic personal health information (ePHI), especially when storing data offsite in a hosted cloud facility.
Now it appears healthcare companies are finally getting the message about the need for heightened data security. InTouchMD, for instance, the leading provider of healthcare marketing solutions, recently partnered with Webair to establish a direct fiber connection between Webair’s flagship NY1 data center and InTouchMD’s headquarters in New York. The partnership makes InTouchMD one of the safest and most secure destinations for pharmaceutical industry data.
