We are happy to welcome Level3 to EvoSwitch Datacenter. Level3 provides a comprehensive suite of connectivity services and have signed a contract with EvoSwitch to start delivering from our datacenter
Connectivity within datacenters significantly increases with the number of carriers. We now house over 35 carriers at our location in Haarlem, including carriers such as Global Crossing, euro fiber, BT, KPN, Tele2 and Cogent. By the end of this year we expect to house more than 50 carriers on-site, ensuring customers the best available options in connectivity. With the addition of Level 3, we are well on our way to reach that target.

After doing the necessary research, reading blogs and white papers, visiting seminars and talking with suppliers, its decided that cloud should become the dot on the horizon for your organization. But how do you reshape your current IT spaghetti into this utopian cloud world?
Migrating to external cloud computing has a significant impact on an IT organization, their role as a supplier and the way in which applications are developed and used. During the migration an organization becomes less of an internal IT environment and increases the utilization of external cloud computing environments. It is,therefore, necessary to take the presence of composite applications in the architecture into account. In addition, the move from the current enterprise IT environment to the different migration paths (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) has its own characteristics.
One of the best ways to approach cloud migration is to view the current IT environment from the perspective of applications or services. At the moment not all applications are suitable for migrating to an external cloud environment. Good candidates are applications that are not mission-critical, are hardly integrated at all with other important applications and those which are of no strategic (competitive) value to the organization.
