Multicloud high availability (HA) can help protect your enterprise’s valuable application and data assets against costly system and power outages and ensure business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR). But how do you best protect against planned and unplanned downtime for both on-premises and cloud infrastructures?
Cloud bursts in nature…not so good. As seen in recent news, dangerous flooding can happen when the ground or rivers cannot absorb or contain massive amounts of rainfall over a very short period of time. In computing, cloud bursting is a different matter. “Bursting” an on-premises or private cloud app into a public cloud during peak demand times can be a very good thing. But only as long as your network is prepared for massive bursts in workload and data traffic.
By leveraging Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric™ (ECX Fabric™) on Platform Equinix®, which sits at the edge, adjacent to multiple carriers networks and cloud providers, this company can tap into telecommunication circuits from their carrier of choice, while at the same time, dynamically and simultaneously interconnecting to multiple cloud providers over high-speed, low-latency virtual private
Cities around the world are facing enormous challenges as urbanization accelerates. Cities already consume the majority of the world’s energy, water and food, while producing most of the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and waste. And, with over 90% of the world’s urban areas located near coastlines, cities are also vulnerable to climate change hazards such as hurricanes, storms and rising sea levels.i
By working closely with our customers to help them develop their digital edge strategies, we have identified four essential steps that, when combined, speed digital transformation and remove performance, cloud, security and data challenges at the edge.
Equinix has worked on digital transformations with its customers across various industries. One of our key findings across all this work is that too many of today’s enterprises are ignoring the realities of the physical world as they strive to design the next generation of digital-ready IT architectures.
As 5G is capable of transmitting petabytes of data, it is more cost-effective for network operators when handling these large volumes of traffic to deploy centralized C-RANs, in addition to improving network performance via low-latency connections.
Digital transformation is flipping IT architectures inside out, as data and content move from the private, centralized cloud and on-premises data centers to public cloud services and SaaS providers, beyond an enterprise’s current edge. For digital businesses this means the boundary between the digital and physical worlds is blurring at the digital edge, where commerce, population centers and digital ecosystems meet.
In this dynamic environment, people in the response flow can add an hour. When everything is constantly changing, and you’re continuously pivoting, how can you accurately plan or forecast your business or anticipate an event–the holy grail of digital business?
By providing enterprise architects (or business technology officers) with a CEP platform pre-loaded with insights gleaned from the event processing network, as well as security, data and application services, CEP models can be defined that offer business operational views, backed by transparency, into areas of concern
