Cloud security has always been a hot-button topic among enterprises, and with over 90% of companies using some form of public cloud computing, it continues to be debated among security professionals. Private and public cloud security is an evolving technology, and we’d like to cover some of the major revelations that we’ve seen from the industry in 2017.
We wanted to establish a high-performance NPS-as-a-Service infrastructure solution in the U.S., with the same fast and secure access to NetApp and our cloud partners from which our Australia customer base benefits. At the same time, we wanted to reduce the high cost of storage for ourselves and our customers and increase their QoE.
The digital edge is also where businesses are competing in an expanding global marketplace that is driving a growing digital global economy. For companies to gain value from and monetize all this digital growth, they require direct, secure and scalable Interconnection to people, locations, cloud and data. As the Global Interconnection Index predicts, clouds are the sweet spot when it comes to where companies are focusing their Interconnection growth.
Today’s digital economy is an “as-a-service” world, where individuals and businesses have a plethora of choices in goods and services at their fingertips from multiple cloud service providers (CSPs).
Each player in a financial services ecosystem is dealing with specific workloads with their own set of characteristics. For example, high frequency traders are like sprinters, creating short bursts of trading traffic within a single day, while capital investors are more like marathoners, generating trading traffic at a steady pace over years.
Healthcare is full of uncertainties, but an optimized IT infrastructure based on an IOA strategy built on Platform Equinix can help industry organizations ensure that superior, secure, cost-effective connectivity isn’t one of them.
Capital market companies have been one of the more cautious adopters of the cloud. However, increased pressure to reduce costs, improve margins and realize greater efficiencies are forcing today’s institutional investing firms to move their critical applications and data into the cloud.
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™.
AWS Direct Connect is now available at Equinix in 13 global markets, and most recently, providing access to two separate regions (Dublin and London) out of our London-based LD4, LD5 and LD6 data centers.
The theme at last year’s AWS #re:Invent was “the cloud is the new normal.” Here are some highlights from these announcements that I believe will be very exciting for Equinix customers moving forward.
