2021-01-29T12:41:15-06:00

Finally, a particularly challenging year has come to an end.

And while 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic was a year unlike any other, we were still able to accomplish some pretty amazing things and navigate the year’s trends. Colocation as Important as Ever One of the largest data center trends we saw throughout this past year [...]

2020-10-23T12:01:09-05:00

When Amazon announced its new game streaming service, it joined other heavyweights Google, Sony, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, and plenty of others launching gaming subscription services. The world of video games is about to enter a new era. What does that mean for networks and interconnection? Sometimes, talking about how we got here is instructive in forecasting where we’re going. Let’s take a look into the past of gaming to help us understand the present and the future.

The future of cloud gaming is on the Edge

2020-09-29T10:41:14-05:00

Data Center Dynamics recently featured 1623 Farnam in an article written by Vice President of Business Development, Greg Elliott. The combination of cloud and Edge computing creates a more flexible platform that provides gaming developers and publishers with the ability to scale. Input latency and visual lag can have an outsized and negative impact on the gamer’s experience, especially for new cloud gaming platforms, if servers reside in centralized cloud data centers that are located hundreds of miles away or more from the end user. Whereas centralized cloud service providers require companies to keep content in a single location, Edge computing enables the distribution of application processes at the edge [...]

How the Interconnected Edge Helps the Cloud Get Its Game On

2020-09-29T10:43:59-05:00

Capacity Media recently featured 1623 Farnam in an article written by Vice President of Business Development, Greg Elliott. It was two decades ago, at E3, a popular trade event for the video game industry, when enthusiasts were first able to witness a cloud gaming demonstration. Ten years later, in 2010, OnLive became the first publicly available remote cloud gaming platform. But even after Sony acquired OnLive just five years later and converted this technology along with another cloud service to create PlayStation Now, the reception was decidedly mixed. For one, the relaunched cloud gaming iteration still required powerful hardware, which runs contrary to the promise and value prop of cloud [...]

2020-09-18T12:06:28-05:00

IT infrastructure has become even more critical than ever.  Whether you are a mid-size company or large enterprise, you need to be able to connect to a reliable network that has a low risk of downtime and do so cost effectively.

Your business’ workloads are increasing constantly, which can put a strain on your on-site infrastructure -including elements such as power, network connectivity, and even ensuring you have ample cooling. So, what do you do when you’ve exhausted or nearing the capacity of [...]
