BROOMFIELD, Colo., Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As the official Direct Connect Provider for Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent, Level 3 Communications, Inc. (LVLT) provided direct cloud connectivity to deliver this year's annual conference entirely over the AWS Cloud. Anthony Christie, Chief Marketing Officer for Level 3, shares his three key takeaways from re:Invent 2016.
- Hybrid IT is a new world. Customers have a better understanding of how they want to move to the cloud than they did previously; now, they are looking to implement hybrid IT.
- Cloud is no longer about planning; it's about strategy. Enterprises are taking the next step in asking, "What are the implications on my operating environment and what does it mean to my network?"
- Security, performance and agility. In the hybrid IT and hybrid cloud evolution, the network is at the core of delivering superior cloud connectivity.
