Demand for many online services and platforms has been skyrocketing with an unprecedented number of people working from home as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This 451 Research report looks at how companies like Zoom and Netflix were equipped to handle the surge in traffic by accounting for times where capacity requirements rise steeply. Download the report to find out how digital companies are adapting to evolving requirements and why they are focusing largely on connectivity—to cloud, new datacenter ecosystems and networks—and delivery at the edge.


  • Many multitenant data center (MTDC) providers are preparing for increased demand, migrating from 10Gb to 100Gb network architectures
  • Cloud connectivity ecosystems and internet exchanges are ramping up delivery of services as they can offer direct connectivity between participants 
  • Providers say public cloud reliance is pushing them toward hybrid adoption and highlighting the importance of leveraging cloud on ramps
The coronavirus may have halted some projects, but in areas of cloud and datacenter connectivity it is pushing companies to fast-track deployments, forcing the industry toward predicted adoption rates for 2021 and beyond.
