A future with digital wallets must be a highly interconnected future. Tasks as basic as buying a coffee require a community of service providers working together instantly and seamlessly. Direct and secure interconnection between the multiple parties involved is essential for high-performance transactions, customer satisfaction and digital wallet growth.
The best way to achieve public, private, hybrid and multicloud interconnection is to first leverage smaller, distributed, connected data centers at the digital edge.
In this segment of our “How to Converse in Cloud” series, we look at some of the ways hybrid cloud is leading the pack of cloud contenders toward an IT transformation finish line. But first, some definitions.
The digital edge is where commerce, population centers and digital ecosystems meet. And the digital edge isn’t just people looking at web pages and mobile apps. Increasingly, it's smart devices that consume and generate content that needs to be acted on in near real time.
In our more than 175 global IBX data centers, we have seen the ramifications of not leveraging dual power redundancy, even when it was available. We encourage all our customers to take advantage of the power distribution redundancy that is built into our IBX infrastructures.
The public cloud revolution long ago swept through the enterprise, but it’s not over. Not only is public cloud adoption holding steady at about 90%, according to RightScale’s 2017 State of the Cloud survey, but the same survey shows an uptick in the intensity of public cloud use. It indicates 20% of respondents are planning to use multiple public clouds, up from 16% in 2016.
To survive, electronic trading firms must adapt. And there is a way for companies to architect their IT to find the agility needed to continue to deliver low latency, maximize collaboration, gain new data insight – all while staying ahead of evolving regulatory requirements.
Cars are mobile – it’s why they were invented, to move us from here to there. Connected cars can’t depend on traditional IT infrastructures that are centralized and fixed, with data traffic running back and forth between a distant corporate data center.
After initially lagging behind the rest of Europe, the cloud market in Italy is now projected by IDC to grow at a 22% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to 2020, matching the cloud market’s Europe-wide CAGR for that period. In addition, a study by the Polytechnic University of Milan saw a 50% increase in Italy’s cloud market between 2014 to 2016, from $1.2 billion to 1.8 billion.
Over 20 new CSPs joined the ECX cloud private interconnection platform in Sydney and Melbourne, with the majority offering Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) where compute and storage resources are available in single-tenanted, managed, private cloud environments or in the form of dedicated servers
