Data Center Innovation: AI in the Data Center

Data centers today process ever larger, more complex volumes of data. Hybrid cloud, 5G wireless, the internet of things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI)-based applications are pushing traditional data center capabilities to their limits. Data centers require agility and intelligence to effectively manage these increasing demands and workloads.

IoT and 5G are Pushing AI to the Edge

The emergence of 5G and the exponential growth of IoT-based sensors and devices has created a demand for real-time data analysis that traditional cloud networks simply can’t provide.

Smart Cities and Colocation – It’s Not a Coincidence

It is estimated that two thirds of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050, a significant increase from the current 54%. In order for cities to accommodate this rapid growth while remaining functional and responsive to people’s needs, they need to become smarter.

The Hyperscale Future Is Approaching…Fast!

The demand for content flowing from large-scale gaming and streaming services is driving hyperscale expansion. Because delivering this content without a loss of quality–or a subpar customer experience–requires processing and distribution at the edge, hyperscalers need to supplement their footprint with interconnected points of presence that can optimize content delivery.

Industry Perspective: 5G’s Impact on IoT

5G’s initial effects will be most noticeable in technologies like medical robots and autonomous vehicles, it’s clear that 5G will positively - and significantly - disrupt enterprises and organizations leveraging latency-dependent technologies to analyze data in real time and deliver content instantaneously.

5G Applications For Enterprises

Analysts agree 5G will significantly increase bandwidth and open up vast opportunities for businesses that do more than just dip in a toe to test the waters. But right now, enterprises in all industries are massing on 5G shores, anxiously eyeing one another to see who will be among the first to take the 5G

The Evolution of Gaming and the Need for Ultra-Low Latency

Gaming has evolved from challenging the person sitting next to you, to competing with players around the globe. Without ultra-low latency, such competition is simply not possible. And, with emerging technologies such as augmented reality (AR), the importance of low latency will increase even further.
