We’re in the midst of a disruptive shift with the widespread adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). Homes, cars, phones and wearables are all more connected and intelligent. Many enterprises are already using IoT applications to improve and automate manufacturing and other processes.
Experts predict that by 2020, 37 billion intelligent objects and sensors will connect to the Internet, generating data that will be measured in zettabytes.
However, this vast collection of data will only be valuable if it can be analysed and transformed into intelligence. That can’t happen without connectivity, colocation and cloud infrastructure – the foundation of our solutions set.
Our cloud infrastructure solutions include dedicated, high-capacity cloud connectivity to providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure, as well as data center colocation and managed hosting, and a full range of flexible hybrid infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solutions. We also offer value-added solutions for performance, security, scalability and continuity.
Transporting large-capacity data requires a high-performance network, and we offer up to 100GB throughput across a network footprint of more than 84,000 miles. We also provide fiber-based connectivity to major data centers, enterprise building and carrier solutions. In addition, our dark and lit fiber-based solutions offer flexibility, diversity and low latency.
Thanks to our cost-effective space and power and extensive interconnections, many enterprises with big data needs already rely on our colocation facilities. We own and operate 50 data centers across the United States and France that provide interconnection via cross connects, peering and cloud infrastructure.
