The primary effect is substainal cost-saving by sharing your storage, applications and other IT resources between multiple locations.

  • Guaranteed bandwidth and very low latency between long-distance locations, which is very important for real time applications.
  • Private communication because packets travel outside the Internet.
  • Easy to maintain and migrate since no public IP addresses are involved.
  • Ethernet as underlying protocol, allowing you to run your own network technologies on top of it, like VPN and custom QoS policies.
