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.
According to the 2018 IDG Cloud Computing Study, 73% of organizations have at least one application in the cloud, and 76% of enterprises are looking to cloud apps and platforms to accelerate IT service delivery. As enterprises grow, their IT infrastructure needs to scale to accommodate evolving demands.
In preparation for the 5G data onslaught, content delivery players – industry stalwarts such as Akamai and growing players such as Fastly – are designing scalable solutions powered by strategic edge Points of Presence (PoPs) to enable the seamless distribution of rich media content to the end users.
St. Louis, Missouri has one of the most robust and distinguished biotech industries in the world. Home to an extraordinary concentration of world-class scientists, major multinational biotech companies, emerging enterprises, first-rate universities and research institutions, St. Louis is a world leader in corporate and academic bioscience research and development.
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.
Enterprises have so far been forced to work with AI in siloes, due to limitations caused by cloud provider lock-in of data, causing some enterprise IT teams to shy away from the innovation. Now, major tech players are jumping in to help make the implementation of AI seamless for enterprises, opening up the opportunity for hybrid cloud in ways never seen before.
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 plunge.
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.
