The use cases for cloud-based services are as varied as traditional IT demands and can include, in order of the value to customers:

  • Software Development & Testing
    NEW Applications that are Cloud aware
  • Web Hosting
  • Horizontal Application Scale-out
  • Content Creation
  • Big Data/Analytics
  • Research & Development
  • Data Archiving & Backups
  • Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity

While there are well-known Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) that provide a robust portfolio of cloud-based services, there also are numerous niche CSPs that can offer best-of-breed cloud services. These high level use cases have one very important requirement in common, network connectivity.
