Exploring Interconnection Oriented Architectures with AWS


Published on

As cloud usage takes off, data production grows exponentially, content pushes closer to the edge, and end users demand data and applications at all hours from all locations, the ability to seamless interconnect with cloud services becomes more pivotal to Enterprise IT transformation. In this session we will share what interconnection oriented architecture is and the reasons why certain enterprises have chosen this architecture to future proof their IT investments. We will also examine a joint solution with our partner ViewQwest and how to extend it with certain AWS use cases.
