Cable Politics in the South Pacific

Our cable map team has made plenty of additions in the last few months. We're finally getting around to sharing some related stories from around the web.

For starters, you can read up on an upcoming 13,000-kilometer link between Chile and Australia—and related politics in the Pacific. We also have stories about Facebook's grand internet ambitions and Google's Grace Hopper.

All this and more is below. >>

Exploring the Cloud, Overland and Undersea

Where is the cloud?

 

Here's a very simple answer: Asia is home to the most cloud data centers (122) with the United States and Canada not too far behind (98). Together these regions account for 67% of the world’s cloud data centers, with Europe housing 23% and Latin America just 2%.

The Dollars and Cents of SD-WAN

What's driving the shift to SD-WAN?

While there is no one single reason for SD-WAN's rise, cost savings is a major motivation cited by the WAN managers we've connected with at our WAN Summits and through our annual WAN Manager Survey.

Listen—the allure of dramatically reducing network spend is strong.

Sample Our Voice, Network, and WAN Research

We've made it to that slow and hazy last week of July. Seems like a good time  to shake things up and share some free research. 

Fact: you can sample the data that fuels blog posts like this and this and this. Keep scrolling to browse report content that's currently available to download at no cost. 

2Africa and PLCN Make Headlines

It's a tale of two submarine cables. Both are huge, headline-grabbing projects, but they're having very different moments in the spotlight this month.

What to Know About Connecting to Your IaaS Provider

Around three in four enterprises that responded to our latest WAN Manager Survey reported having more than one infrastructure as a service (IaaS) partner. Azure and AWS were easily the most frequently cited by participants; 60% were using one or both of these providers.

With this in mind, how are enterprises connecting to their IaaS providers and why would you select one method over another? And what's the global geographic distribution of cloud providers looking like these days?

SD-WAN Through an Expense Management Lens

With the rising adoption of cloud services, IT leaders are evolving their networks to address new requirements and realize cost savings. 

This is what we'll be covering when we join the experts at Calero MDSL for a webinar on August 5. (And you know we'll be bringing our latest SD-WAN pricing data.)

The WAN and Working From Home

For several months now, much of the world has transitioned to remote work.

Where possible, knowledge workers have set up shop in home offices or kitchens or bedrooms, logging into virtual private networks and leaning on cloud services to keep business running uninterrupted.

A Changing WAN, Benchmarked

"In previous iterations of the WAN, you might have seen one large MPLS cloud, but with core sites having a larger MPLS port than edge sites. Now we're seeing a lot more technology differentiation between core versus middle tier versus edge sites." 

A self-proclaimed "data guy," TeleGeography Senior Analyst and Data Science Manager Mike Bisaha has spent years building tools to help IT managers better understand the performance, design, and cost of their networks.

And he's learned a lot about what the modern WAN looks like in the process. 

Behind the Map: Making a Cable Map While Quarantined

Early in the calendar year is map design season around TeleGeography. Colorful proofs arrive at the office, which the design team pores over, so as not to miss any details. No cable left behind. No design flourish left unexamined.

So when the DC office packed up and transitioned to remote work in March 2020, we were left to wonder: how were we going to finish our cable map from within quarantine?
