At Mobile World Congress 2017 there is a lot of buzz around the massive amounts and types of data that mobile devices will be adding to the deluge of big data traffic that is already traveling over today’s enterprise networks.
ServedBy the Net made its home base in Equinix’s Seattle data centers (SE2/SE3) and leveraged an Interconnection Oriented Architecture™ (IOA™) strategy to begin its IaaS managed service expansion.
The fact that some IoT-based products might be silly can’t obscure the fact that many more have practical, sometimes lifesaving applications. And judging by projected investment in the IoT, the business world seems convinced the IoT will be transformational.
The use of cloud services is growing at an exponential pace globally. IDC, for instance, estimates that worldwide revenues from public cloud services will exceed $195 billion in 2020, more than double the $96.5 billion from 2016.
