Web-based service providers in this type of situation can benefit greatly from being in a data centre with a rich ecosystem of service providers. Having dark fibre, peering exchange, and consumer network POPs available with a simple cross-connect simplifies operations a great deal. What's more, reducing vendor interaction to the physical level as much as possible maximizes performance.
In this paper, we discuss how a private network can benefit web-based service providers. Topics we cover in this white paper include:
- Specific network requirements
- Transport infrastructure
- Transport network overlays
- IP network overlays
- Content delivery networks
