Data Center Certifications: Understanding the Language of Compliance

2022-04-06T11:29:04-05:00

Data centers are crucial parts of any robust IT framework — and that means they need to be able to reliably keep up with changing regulations and demands across security, sustainability and other mission-critical metrics. 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

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. 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. [...]

Going Green: Every Effort Makes a Difference

2021-10-29T12:04:40-05:00

Sustainability has been a hot button topic in the data center industry as of late, and for good reason. Data centers utilize a large amount of resources, including power and water, to carry out operations in the facility, and as a result can generate large amounts of emissions. As our communities and the world continue to generate mass amounts of data and connectivity demands only soar higher, we are likely  to  keep adding to these environmental impacts. So, how do we continue to grow without increasing emissions or depleting resources? Luckily, there are solutions we can take advantage of. It’s Cool, Man Cooling uses a lot of power, but it [...]

The Digital Map for Data Gravity

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 [...]
