It’s no secret Internet infrastructure is changing. Cloud services and web content companies go to great lengths to improve the quality of their high-bandwidth web services to users, and staying relevant in a high-competitive market means optimizing Internet infrastructure where you can to make users happy.
Edge data center installations have been changing the Internet game for years. These facilities enable cloud services and web content companies to deliver their high-bandwidth web services to users outside of the top metros like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.
Transforming cloud services
Information technology spending on data center systems worldwide is expected to amount to $208 billion by the end of 2020 and with good reason. Edge data centers have transformed the way organizations worldwide approach and manage their network infrastructure. Companies can use public cloud resources and implement multi-cloud solutions through data center services.
Not only do data centers house the servers that enable cloud computing but they also play a major role in companies’ network strategies. A high-quality data center that offers robust connectivity options and components can enable organizations to use and access fast and more efficient cloud services for cheaper.
Optimizing and spreading streaming services
Streaming services are more popular than ever, especially with the COVID-19 crisis keeping everyone at home. However, streaming providers face the challenge of providing their content with minimal buffering. Even a delay of a few seconds can cause footage to fragment, leading to unhappy online users and customers.
Data centers enable streaming services to operate effectively for online users all around the world. Because data centers are closer to the end-user, streaming providers like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ ca offer faster and more responsive services.
Managing IoT technology
Customer demands have already been reshaped by the Internet of things (IoT) devices. By the end of this year, over 20 billion devices will be connected to the Internet. This means over 800 trillion gigabytes of data will be produced by users worldwide, and many businesses will try to turn this unstructured information into structured information through their big data analytics programs.
Data centers and data center services will be essential for businesses to harness the potential of IoT technology. Data centers are expected to become the relay stations for IoT devices. They’ll handle processing tasks that are too great for the devices. They’ll also handle processing tasks that could be too time-sensitive to be sent to the network core. Data centers play an integral role in Internet infrastructure and they’ll continue to make a big impact on the Internet’s future.
