Peering at the Edge

2021-11-10T15:36:02-06:00

These days, the IT world is talking non-stop about the edge and its numerous advantages. Between lower latency and improved network performance, edge computing is a recipe for success across multiple industries. While the benefits are clear, the infrastructure that makes it work may not be as obvious. In short, peering has been a huge contributor to the evolution of the edge.

2021-10-14T12:39:17-05:00

With all of the tech advancements and applications that are a part of our global digital economy, it's no surprise that data gravity is reaching astronomical levels. A good example is the Internet of Things (IoT) with applications such as wearables, health monitors and smart grids. It’s essential that the data needed to support those use cases is hosted very close to where the data is generated and stored. New frameworks are needed that cater to an IoT-driven world, and as such a lot of that data gravity has been moving to the cloud.  Whether its a single cloud, multicloud or hybrid cloud solution, the cloud solves for key application [...]
