It’s hard enough for the public sector to keep up with current digital transformation imperatives, such as the modernization required by the Data Center Optimization Initiative, without having to worry about what twists and turns the next wave of emerging IT technologies and regulations might have waiting around the corner.
Residing on disks, in computer memory or transferred by wire or wireless, data increasingly drives global economies. Try going a day without internet access. How isolated do you feel when you’re out of cell-tower range? Your day is driven by data, and the value of data is defined by its context and usage.
The wealth management industry is facing a time of unprecedented change. Challenges such as shifting demographics, changing client expectations, automated advisory tools and ongoing regulatory demands are driving digital transformation and reshaping the competitive landscape.
Building the products and services that sit at the heartbeat of a company’s value is exciting business. The teams that undertake product development in a digital world are typically enamored with technology, tuned into market trends, and driven to push the boundaries of what’s possible.
Fortifying our cybersecurity strategy is a critical priority at Equinix, as it is for our many customers around the world. In this blog from our continued series on the topics that keep CIOs on their toes, we’ll tell you about some of the best practices we employ to keep ahead of the quickly evolving cyberattack threat.
Digital disruption is forcing organizations to focus on a digital strategy that optimizes the ability to access and consume digital technologies, such as public cloud services, software as a service, artificial intelligence, blockchain and Internet of Things platforms, within a continuously evolving digitally connected world.
These emerging technologies are revolutionizing the manufacturing industry with several applications that benefit from Interconnection — the direct and private traffic exchange between key business partners — for high performance and low latency.
Networking for Nerds: Do You Know the Difference between IP Peering vs. IP Transit for Enterprise Internet Interconnection?
IP peering is a mutual exchange of data between two ISPs, and the amount of data exchanged is typically close to equal. The respective ISPs do not charge for this arrangement as both parties benefit equally — this is known as settlement-free, and it simply means that neither ISP will pay the other under an agreement. IP transit is when one entity pays another for the right to transit its upstream network. In this arrangement, one entity is
The second annual Global Interconnection Index (the GXI), a market study published by Equinix, projects Interconnection Bandwidth will grow at a 98% CAGR between 2017 and 2021.[ii] One of the key factors driving this bandwidth increase is the rise of multicloud and hybrid cloud infrastructures, which spur a greater demand for private interconnection between businesses and the Cloud and IT Provider ecosystem.
Data center efficiency is about optimizing the physical world equipment to match the digital demand with the highest degree of accuracy possible. That means having the right number of servers, power, cooling needed to support demand in that location at that time. Predicting that demand across a distributed infrastructure will be far more challenging as the number of variables that impact it increase.
