"The continued migration of new and established workloads to IaaS clouds has resulted in distributed application environments that are driving significant changes to network architectures, infrastructure, and operations. In this context, network modernization is not only inevitable but imperative. IDC has long emphasized the 'cloud effect' across the networking landscape, and cloud connects and interconnects and cloud networking are perhaps the most clearcut examples of how cloud is redefining the ends and means of modern networks." — Brad Casemore, research vice president, Datacenter and Multicloud Networks at IDC
