Interestingly DDoS attacks have moved beyond the simple large volume attacks of yore to sophisticated, dynamic combinations of stealthy multi-vector application-level attacks and even campaigns of attacks that morph while they’re in progress. This requires a multi-layered approach to your DDoS security that includes on-premises, in-line protection and intelligent communication with your ISP or MSP, so it knows to deploy its own DDoS defenses when necessary.
To tackle latency issues, many organizations have started placing significant portions of their application and IT infrastructure at the digital edge where they are close to globally dispersed users, partners and cloud services.
While security and privacy concerns are similar across cloud and traditional non-cloud services, cloud security concerns are amplified because transitioning to the public cloud requires shifting some control over organizational assets to the cloud provider, and those assets could be mismanaged.
“Collaborative communities” harness the power of proximity not only to meet the demands of the digital economy, but to exceed them.
Planning for the IoT: How the right upfront decisions can mean better performance, scalability and security
While security is a hot topic for the architects of IoT devices and applications, good IoT infrastructure planning shouldn’t stop there, and should also include best practices for IoT interconnection at the digital edge.
Today our deal with Verizon is final, making this one of the most momentous days in Equinix history. By adding 29 new facilities, we’ve expanded our global data center footprint by nearly 20%. And as significant as that expansion is to our business, it will have an even bigger impact on our customers worldwide.
These three factors are influencing greater “cloud confidence” and adoption in the region, specifically at the digital edge where there are higher concentrations of users, applications, data and clouds.
It's only day three of NAB Show (National Association of Broadcasters) in Las Vegas, but Equinix has enjoyed a busy start of the show. Check out some photos from the first two days of Equinix panels, presentations, and Equinix booth action.
The digital edge is where commerce, population centers and digital ecosystems meet. This is the place where information is exchanged, transactions are conducted, and data is gathered and analyzed. However, the inherent limitations of legacy networks and the laws of physics impair high-speed, low-latency communications over long distances.
The time for a piecemeal approach to digital transformation has passed and, more importantly — it is unnecessary. Now there’s an easier and far more intuitive way to achieve digital business agility through interconnection.
