Data centre interconnect (DCI) is a segment of the networking
market that focuses on the technology used to link two or more data
centres so the facilities can share resources. There are many options
for DCI connectivity and selecting the right one depends upon a
wide range of variables, including the location of the data centres,
the distance between data centres, bandwidth and availability
requirements, the capabilities of local service providers and security
