How to Ditch the Fear of Falling Behind and Never Miss a Tech Beat


So often it seems like the best and most magical experiences occur when you just happen to be at the right place at the right time. When it comes to IT, however, there’s a science to making sure you’re always where you need to be and never missing a beat.  In our recent blog, we discussed the idea of IT FOMO. As most of us know it, FOMO is the fear of missing out on exciting experiences or fun memories and the camaraderie that comes with it. But in technology and business, FOMO brings with it a more dire edge. In a world evolving at breakneck speed with businesses all [...]

IT FOMO: The Key to Not Missing Out on Innovation


The fear of missing out. As social beings, many of us know this feeling well. As social beings in the digital, ultra-connected age, this feeling often becomes more acute as life’s greatest moments and most exciting stories are paraded in front of our eyes constantly over social media and beyond. But what happens when a business gets a bad case of FOMO? In this day and age, when rapid innovation persists and the technologies that come from it seem to exist on a continuum that spans from ‘necessary’ to ‘disastrous if not adopted’, FOMO can be crippling. So many IT options exist, organizations can’t possibly incorporate them all. Every time [...]

Going Green: Every Effort Makes a Difference


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


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.” [...]
