Cross Connects are reliable and resistant to network congestion as the data transfers quickly between the connected VDCs. In addition, it facilitates resource sharing between the connected VDCs, reducing the cost of redundant virtual infrastructure setups. For additional benefits offered by Cross Connect, see Overview.
