1623 Farnam’s Todd Cushing Discusses the Most Important Attributes of Edge Data Centers, 2023 Trends and more on Agent of Influence Podcast

2022-11-30T10:51:46-06:00

The data center is an ecosystem. Within that ecosystem, it’s important to have carrier-dense foundations with lots of interconnection options. As time wears on, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the migration to hybrid cloud has driven people to want to be closer to users — and if the edge data center isn’t rich, it doesn’t really work. To discuss these evolving mandates for data centers, how to meet customers’ new needs and what the new indicators of success are, 1623 Farnam’s President, Todd Cushing, joined Nabil Hannan, Managing Director of NetSPI and host of the Agent of Influence podcast, on the most recent episode. As a longtime contributor to the [...]

A 6G Crash Course: What’s Headed Our Way?

2022-11-22T09:46:43-06:00

5G is certainly having its heyday, and the entire IT ecosystem is still in the midst of 5G densification, use case development, and full-on rollout. It’s no surprise that 5G would garner so much press — as with every new generation cellular technology, it brings a lot of value, innovation, and enhanced capabilities to businesses and users of all kinds. In fact, the influence of 5G is so extensive that by 2030, the economic impact of 5G is expected to reach $227 billion — in the manufacturing industry alone. Take into consideration the huge implications this technology will have on mobile communications, healthcare, government, entertainment, and more, and it’s clear [...]

With Data Center Sustainability, Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

2022-11-04T10:27:39-05:00

There’s a lot of ground to cover in order to make data centers sustainable. This power-intensive industry deals with mission-critical, increasingly dense, and power-hungry deployments and applications — but impacts on the environment must be reduced. Collectively, the world of critical infrastructure is always looking to make these two realities reconcilable. However, in order for progress to be made, each and every data center provider must take on personal responsibility to make its data center environment as green as possible. So, let’s talk about how 1623 is taking responsibility for the progression of sustainable IT right here in the Omaha, Nebraska metro. Giving Green the Cool Factor Every data center [...]

1623 Farnam Joins DCD to Talk Intelligent, Evolving Operations

2022-10-21T15:12:36-05:00

As the demand placed on data centers grows, the requirements from tenants are becoming more complex. As a result, data center providers and operators are facing a continual push to optimize how they run and manage these mission-critical facilities. What’s more, providers must find new ways to measure and report their operations in ways that demonstrate even more value to customers and shareholders alike. Not to mention, the industry is looking for ways to more effectively track progress against new and crucial areas of industry (and global) focus — like sustainability, for instance. This leads to shifting out supposedly outdated processes and metrics (like PUEs) and replacing them with more [...]

Home is Where the Hyperscale is. 1623 Farnam EVP Talks Data Gravity with Pacific Telecommunications Council

2022-10-19T14:09:09-05:00

Data gravity is a key megatrend as well as a philosophy that is ramping up. It also raises many questions as organizations grapple with what it is and how to best leverage. As content providers, edge data centers and enterprise IT teams collaborate to answer those questions to assess the value of data gravity and make informed decisions for digital transformation, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind.  First, understanding that the concept is not a nuisance but can be an indicator of where businesses can tap the value of their data and connectivity with the least effort.  Second, follow where the data leads. This is not [...]

Making the Cloud Work for You: Customized Connections for All

2022-10-14T12:53:41-05:00

These days, everyone wants everything to be customized to their preferences. We want to choose what we do and don’t put on our burgers, we want to make the background on our phone representative of what we love, and we want to curate our social media feeds to show us what’s most interesting to us. Doesn’t it make sense then that, when it comes to IT (arguably the most crucial facet of today’s global business), we’d want it to be fully tailored too? Users want things to be customized to their unique specifications, and certainly, as specifications across digital business and platforms become more nuanced and individualized, it’s vital that [...]

Game engines such as Fortnite and Minecraft launched massive, interactive virtual concerts over the past few years, bringing the music industry to the next level. What do live shows and XR technology's future look like for those attending a concert? And what does that future mean for those bringing 5G to the edge? Technology is quickly changing how listeners experience live concerts with immersive screens, XR, hologram, and projection systems that can amp up augmented reality for a new generation of concert attendees. For genuinely interactive concert experiences, these applications demand expectations for real-time data speed that are typically handled at the edge. In addition, shows will be enhanced by [...]

Unleashing the Full Value of Next-Gen IT: The Key to it All

2022-08-03T11:47:19-05:00

As rapid, multi-industry advances reshape the way our world communicates, operates, educates and finds entertainment, technologies like AI, IoT, VR and a whole lot of other acronyms have taken the world by storm. However, as we look to truly harness the power of these technologies and adapt them to a dynamic world, the edge data center remains king.  Edge data centers have been a much-discussed facet of IT due to their importance in getting the right levels of latency and speed for tomorrow’s fast-paced, data-intensive applications — but not all edge data centers are created equal. That’s because not all edge data centers have data gravity.  Many may know data [...]
