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.
Telecommunication providers have been supporting global communication growth for decades and it would seem safe to assume this industry has reached a point of maturation. Today, we are finding that key macro trends driving the global digital economy are transforming the Telecom industry faster than ever before due to the market demands for more agile, robust and scalable connectivity solutions from its providers.
No matter what your business is, digital transformation is changing everything.…
In part one of this two-part series I shared some key takeaways from the recent forum, “Digital Asia: Asia’s Digitally Transforming Economies”, hosted by The Economist Corporate Network in Hong Kong. As discussed in my last post, digital transformation is growing fast around Asia-Pacific, thanks to the explosive growth of the internet, mobile penetration, FinTech and big data. In this blog post I want to highlight some of the things companies need to think about when it comes to responding to the huge opportunity presented by digital transformation in Asia-Pacific. Here a few things to consider:
Given the endless opportunities for digital businesses to interconnect with the world from Amsterdam, we’re excited to celebrate the extension of the Equinix AM7 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center with our launch event on December 4, 2018.
Cloud has taken center stage in this race toward reinvention and not just for improved cost, productivity and scalability. Product and service innovations in the cloud are fast-tracking digital transformation for many enterprises. Cloud is no longer a differentiator but a core business enabler.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been around since the 1950s, but it has recently grown into a real force in the digital transformation of businesses and our personal lives. From digital twins that create “living” digital simulation models of physical things (e.g., avatars for airplanes, cars, etc.) to voice recognition applications in smartphones and home assistants, machines are busy learning all there is to know about us and our world.
