Connectivity into the cloud and across all your environments should be provided in a highly available, redundant manner. There are two main implications for this in a cloud-native world. The first implication is the physical connectivity from an on-premise environment or customer into the cloud. All hypercloud providers provide a private express network connection alongside ISP partners (for example, AWS Direct Connect, Azure ExpressRoute, and GCP Cloud Interconnect). It is a best practice to back up the primary, high bandwidth connection with a failover option (another private connection or a VPN tunnel over the internet) by utilizing separate physical links.
