In 4000+ of the largest, most innovative companies in the world, our customers continue to solve the most complex infrastructure, connectivity and workload use cases across network peering, hyperscale, low-latency, HPC/Big Data and AI.
Along the way, we witnessed a growing megatrend, conducted research, built a global database and cracked codes on data creation, Data Gravity and IT infrastructure.
Now, we've developed an industry manifesto for interconnecting global communities around their increasingly most strategic asset - DATA. See our collaborative roadmap that integrates interconnection platforms with multiple partners and builds the industry's largest open fabric of fabrics connecting centers of data.
The accelerating shift to always-on digital business is creating new architectural challenges for both enterprises and service providers - from ever increasing data volumes being created in multiple locations, regulatory and security concerns and a requirement to exchange data with new communities of business partners. Our industry research points to a growing need for this kind of combination of open interconnection and next-generation colocation that will reduce the complexity of digital transformation.
