The lack of having your own physical link. A VPNI is really a private/virtual point-to-point connection between multiple data-centres. So Kevin could have POPs at JINX, CINX and DINX and could then use all three POPs to Sonarr the latest episodes of Desperate Housewives.

Think of it as a VLAN to different physical locations. It is virtual. It is also private. And a network, but to avoid confusion it is not a VPN. It interconnects. And I doubt it will be free (i.e. while the peering might be free, Kevin would still need to pay for his POPs).
Thanks, so it's almost EoIP in a sense, which can be peered from either of the POP locations. Rather cool actually.
