The explosive growth and adoption of cloud services is fueling tremendous changes in IT. For enterprises in all industries, a key strategic initiative for CTOs and CIOs should be to look for the best ways to leverage the benefits of cloud services. It is also critical for cloud providers to differentiate their offerings in order to compete and thrive in an ever more crowded marketplace. Lastly, it is imperative that network providers support dynamic access to cloud destinations as a natural extension of the wide area networks they provide to enterprises.

At Telx, we power the easy consumption of holistic enterprise private cloud and managed IT solutions through Telx Cloud Connect. Telx Cloud Connect is a collection of premium cloud solutions from a strategic growing set of cloud partners. Our approach helps enterprise customers embrace cloud computing and the flexibility, agility, and cost savings it delivers – all in a cloud neutral, secure, highly redundant, and reliable environment.

We also facilitate direct, secure connections between cloud providers and businesses across our data centers, encouraging and enabling collaboration between companies that are accessing applications or cloud destinations through shared networks. This allows both parties to meet enterprise-level requirements for security, reliability and compliance while significantly increasing connectivity speed. Here’s how:
