The time for a piecemeal approach to digital transformation has passed and, more importantly — it is unnecessary. Now there’s an easier and far more intuitive way to achieve digital business agility through interconnection.
A set of leadership principles called “The three Ls” have guided me since the military service that followed my graduation from West Point, and I’ve applied them throughout my years at Equinix.
An interconnection-first, hybrid cloud strategy offers digital payments companies greater performance, scalability, security and reliability, while enabling them to deploy their own infrastructure or leverage AWS Direct Connect on Platform Equinix™.
The Equinix and GCP solution documents the components required for a hybrid Kubernetes deployment leveraging GCE within Equinix IBX data centers. This approach will enable enterprise application developers to more easily containerize applications for cloud migration on Platform Equinix.
There’s clear opportunity here for cloud DVR providers looking to take advantage of increasingly mobile viewing habits. But the storage obstacle is significant, and it exists in part because recordings can’t legally be shared. That means a single unique copy of every recording must be a saved for each individual user, and that adds up.
RTB requires low-latency connectivity, or a bidder has slim chances of winning. The lower the latency, the less time is taken up during the bidding process making the actual connection, so more time is available for analysis of the user’s profile. That means more time for an informed bid and a better chance of success.
Networking at the Edge: Simplify your topology to increase network performance, resiliency and scalability
To accelerate your IOA strategy for networking, we offer a “Network Blueprint.” This guide lays out the steps you can take to address latency, bandwidth and security issues by deploying a more distributed network infrastructure out at your enterprise’s digital edge, where population centers (customers, employees, partners) and digital ecosystems (clouds, mobile, social networks, B2B partners) meet.
The legacy enterprise network is flat, expensive to run and does not provide the flexibility and elasticity that a cloud-enabled enterprise demands. As the primary platform for service consumption, the offering from the NSPs had to change.
While digital disruption can certainly be viewed as a threat, we see forward-looking companies embracing digital transformation as an opportunity and building a digital edge – a distributed physical edge for their IT infrastructures.
MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global OTT market will hit $62 billion by 2020, up from $28 billion in 2015. That’s just one of several bullish OTT predictions, and OTT TV services are in a great spot to capitalize on this growth. But can they take full advantage of these boom times?
