Benefits of Cloud Connectors
Enterprises are quickly adopting cloud services to help enable new business models for greater flexibility at lower cost. In fact, according to the Cisco Global Cloud Index, cloud IP traffic will account for nearly two-thirds of total data center traffic by 2016.
This transition will place new demands on enterprise WANs, which are the critical path between users and the cloud. To optimize employee productivity and realize all the benefits of cloud computing, you need to help ensure the availability, performance, and security of all cloud-based applications.
