Stateless, Inc has announced the release of a new whitepaper discussing how cloud is changing the way organisations connect with their networks. The new addition to Stateless’ Software-Defined Interconnect Documents Library, “Monetize Connectivity Beyond the Data Center with Stateless Luxon,” explores the dynamic shifts occurring within the market, including the increased usage of cloud architectures and the opportunities that software-defined interconnect (SD-IX) creates for colocation providers and Cloud MSPs.
Historically, colocation providers have offered space, power and cross connects to connect resources within the data center, but today’s multi-site + hybrid cloud world requires more interconnectivity. The whitepaper details how colocation providers and Cloud MSPs can use SD-IX fabrics to monetize links beyond the four walls of a data center.
Currently Cloud MSPs and colocation providers are largely using legacy network solutions that are cumbersome to implement and costly to manage. The need for a solution that can adapt to changing application deployment types, evolve with the needs of tenants and position a provider to reach its financial goals has been clear.
The Stateless whitepaper describes how its recently announced SD-IX product, Luxon, enables colocation providers and Cloud MSPs to create a software-defined interconnect fabric, connecting tenants to portfolio data centers and hyperscale clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure, all of which offer Layer 3 functionality.
With Stateless Luxon, providers can build new interconnect products while reducing network management overhead. The platform gives providers the power to monetize and easily deliver new services and expand their business to be more competitive and profitable. For example: Luxon allows colocation providers and Cloud MSPs to create highly secure, automated and intelligent Layer 3 connectivity between data centers, without deploying individual network appliances for each tenant. Instead, providers deploy a single solution that can connect all sites through a natively multi-tenant system.
