The best way to measure these metrics is with standardized certifications. This allows potential data center customers to know exactly how individual facilities hold up best practices and to easily compare data centers and their operators with competitors. These certifications serve as benchmarks — but they do evolve as industry standards change. Here’s a look at some key certifications and why you should be aware of them during your data center procurement. SOC One of [...]

Peering at the Edge

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

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. As digital transformation continues to grow and change, data needs to be available at more endpoints and get through the network as fast as possible. With that level of growth, a single edge data center may no longer be enough...and that’s where peering at the edge comes in. [...]
