Since public cloud service has been adopted by more and more customers, enterprises are transferring more key business to the cloud end, and the demands of accessing public cloud are also growing rapidly. But the internet connections are unreliable and insecure, thus access enterprises’ key business directly by the internet may bring in risk to their data and bear the unreliable networks. Cloud Exchange’s lease line service provides stronger safeguard and higher reliability for customers’ cloud connections.
