Why are Data Centers Becoming Cloud Nexus Points?

2023-03-01T13:47:15-06:00

In “Back to the Future II,” protagonist Marty McFly finds his future self and family living in a fanciful home where his son asks the kitchen to bring him fruit and future Marty connects with his boss on a video call in the year 2015. The prognosticators behind the film didn’t get everything right (future Marty still gets faxes, after all), but many of the elements imagined when the movie was written over three decades ago have come to fruition. The smart home and appliances or communications and video gaming devices depicted in the past’s most idealized dreams for the future aren’t a far cry from many of the things [...]

2023 is being hailed as the year of the cloud — or at least, much like the years that came before it, a year in which cloud usage will continue to evolve and contribute to a growing share of an organization’s resources and success.
