New Peers, New Opportunities: A Peek into the IX Ecosystem


Since the dawn of the internet’s astounding connection capabilities, the world has opened up in new and previously unimaginable ways, paving new inroads for innovation and collaboration. Yet, since the advent of this world wide web, it’s had its foibles too. Yes, the internet and the connectivity that creates it is full of eccentricities (and in worse cases, pitfalls) that seem to intensify as demands on connections grow. A perfect digital world is unattainable — but what is the closest you can get to having control in an unpredictable world? How close can an organization get to perfect interconnection?   We think it’s safe to say that for those ideal outcomes, [...]

Simplicity with Hybrid Multiclouds


Digital transformation is all about a better user experience. New applications, new platforms, network expansions for faster connectivity, and so much more are all part of today’s IT business operations. Even as digital transformation grows and transforms, there’s another factor that’s come into play: more simplicity. But it’s more than wanting “more;” organizations are also looking for less stress. When IT demands are higher than ever, companies are looking to increase their value via technology. Aligning complex systems with a holistic model that aligns all disparate aspects, makes the entire process easier to manage. Hybrid and multicloud solutions are the frontier of digital transformation and cloud computing. Between greater control [...]

The Digital Map for Data Gravity


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 [...]

The Next Edge Frontier


Once, taking workloads to the edge was considered the new frontier of IT advantage — a wild west where only the bold and pioneering set up camp. Now that adoption has ramped up as the benefits of edge computing are more well known, the question becomes: If everyone is doing it, is there really anything left to talk about? Definitely. Without a doubt. IT demands are making edge computing even more important than ever for all of the right reasons. Ultra low latency, improved network performance are all in service of the new era of digital initiatives.  While it may be becoming the standard, it doesn’t mean it’s any less [...]

Guiding a Sea Change in the Pursuit of Green Data


Working towards a green future is an important movement happening across the globe. As data centers continue to serve as the home to the internet and the infrastructure that supports it, they only become more essential in the global communications green equation. So, it makes sense that we are seeing a growing trend for data centers to do their part in ‘greening up’ in ways both big and small. Collectively, We Can all Make a Difference As noted in Todd Cushing’s recent article in Digital Infra Network, “Significant progress can be built on the back of widespread, iterative change — even if those changes start small. Every movement starts somewhere.” [...]
