Smart Farming: How IoT and The Edge Will Feed the Human Race

As the IoT revolution transforms modern agriculture, farms will generate a tremendous amount of data that the cloud simply won’t be able to accommodate. It is estimated that the average farm will generate over four million data points a day by the year 2034. In order to feed the planet, farms in the near future will need to connect at the edge – the periphery of the network that’s as close to the end-user as possible – in order to store and process this daily deluge of data. 

Why Broadband Is Crucial for Rural America

Roughly one-third of rural Americans lack access to high-speed broadband, compared with just 4% of urban Americans. The internet service that many rural Americans can access is slower, has limited capacity for downloading and uploading, and costs more than in urban areas. This prevents millions of Americans from participating in the digital economy and deprives them of many of the advances in commerce, education, and healthcare that urban America takes for granted. Closing the broadband connectivity gap today would raise the standard of living for millions of Americans.
Content Delivery Networks

Content Delivery Networks – Making the Data Trains Run On Time

The majority of web traffic today is served through CDNs, and the need for CDN services is only growing with the proliferation of streaming services, e-commerce, and cloud-based applications that require increasingly high performance. CDN providers operate their own network points of presence (POPs), and cache their content in third party-owned data centers, or a combination of both. Since very few CDNs have POPs all over the world, companies will use a number of different CDNs to deliver their content to the end-users.
Internet Exchanges

Internet Exchanges – The glue that holds the internet together

As data travels across the internet, it is constantly being re-routed and re-directed between networks. Oftentimes, traffic on one network has to switch onto a different network owned and controlled by someone else. Internet exchanges enable this kind of data transfer through a process called “peering,” which allows networks to hand off customer traffic between each other’s networks without having to pay a third party to carry it across the internet for them.

What Makes a Data Center an Ecosystem?

As demands for performance and capacity have increased, the data center has changed. And central to that change is interconnection between the tenants in the data center. In essence, the interconnected data center looks less like an apartment building filled with strangers, and more like an ecosystem whose inhabitants depend on and interact with each other. Indeed, it is the interconnectedness of this ecosystem that makes it so valuable.

Lessons from Hurricane Harvey: Ensure Your Data Center Can Weather Any Storm

On the East Coast and near the Gulf of Mexico, hurricanes are one of the most serious threats to IT infrastructure. When systems go down as a result of their ferocity, it not only impedes business and government operations, but it also affects communications, equipment, and services that play a vital role in emergency response. So, how do data centers ensure they can remain up and running during even the most catastrophic weather events?
