Because work from home is more or less done via public Internet, cloud connectivity doesn’t really help home offices that much. However, when the ISP providing the Internet connection for your home office is peering at an Internet Exchange such as DE-CIX, this increases the quality of the connection.
It depends on the cloud. For most of the clouds you need to start the provisioning in the interface of the cloud service provider. You will get a connection authorization number (a service-key, pairing-key or token). This number will give DE-CIX the right to connect to that network and we will then use the number to extend your access at DE-CIX into the cloud.
You need to be able to implement a BGP –session on your Internet device to be able to communicate with the cloud.
