In this video, Amar Kapadia, CEO of Aarna Networks, explains why the middle mile is going through a renaissance and how it is changing the game for multi-cloud networking. He discusses three factors driving the anticipated growth of the middle mile:
* Multi-cloud networking: Enterprises are choosing to use multiple public clouds to run their business, and they need dedicated connectivity to each of these clouds. This connectivity has to be provided on demand in a self-service manner.
* Cloud repatriation: To use multiple clouds effectively, the state information or the data has to be moved to a neutral site that can be accessed by any public cloud or even private clouds in an easy-to-use manner without incurring egress costs. The middle mile is an excellent location to host the storage or the databases for the state information.
* Orchestration: It requires orchestration of tens of heterogeneous infrastructure vendors across tens of thousands of sites, following that it requires orchestration of hundreds of Network Services and applications across this infrastructure.
