Evolving networksNetwork-as-a-Service is here
The process by which, over time, something undergoes
a positive change, developing beneficial traits that are
passed on as a foundation for future generations.
In cloud computing, elasticity is defined as the degree to
which a system is able to adapt to workload changes by
provisioning and de-provisioning resources in an
autonomic manner, such that at each point in time the
available resources match the current demand as closely
as possible (Wikipedia)

§ Need to independently order cross connects each time;
§ Usually 12 months contract;
§ Lead times for services between 5 and 30 days;
§ Little flexibility in terms of access speeds;
§ No API integration/programmability.
