Any successful Cloud strategy is entirely reliant on connectivity: solid, stable and decent quality bandwidth. When all your data, systems and critical applications sit in the Cloud, it’s vitally important that you can connect to and interact with those Cloud environments both reliably and seamlessly. Fortunately, to consume Cloud services requires connectivity of any kind, which means that you could connect over a second link, or worst-case scenario, connect over your 3G / LTE phone.
In the enterprise, having dual-routes / backup connectivity to the internet is highly recommended, as traffic can be instantly and automatically rerouted over the backup link, should anything go wrong on the primary link.
However, keep in mind that not all connectivity is created equal – so the quality of connectivity must be investigated before committing to any service provider.
