The Business Value of Self-Built Datacenter Interconnect Infrastructure
IDC interviewed organizations that have replaced leased private lines with a self-built datacenter interconnect infrastructure (“self-built DCI”).
Based on these interviews, IDC calculates that study participants will reduce the cost of connecting their datacenters by an average of 42% and realize a three-year ROI of 325% by:
• Reducing the cost of inter-datacenter connectivity over time by moving from leased private lines to cost-effective self-owned and managed datacenter interconnect infrastructures
• Enabling IT network infrastructure teams to work more effectively by reducing the time they must spend on day-to-day monitoring and performance optimization activities
• Providing their businesses with improved network agility, reliability, and performance that they require to address and meet customer demand and market conditions
