Where data lives drives everything. Before, [enterprises would have] a single location. If [they’re] big and fancy, maybe [they] had two. But the reality is now our customers and our employees [are just scattered everywhere]. So the location of data absolutely matters from how we process it to how we analyze it and, of course, how it gets interacted with.
So when we think about data gravity, we think that data has to live somewhere where it’s performant and accessible without any slowdowns.
High-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), and data gravity are all industry challenges that must be solved. Digital Realty partners -- such as RACKSPACE -- are helping enterprises and service providers overcome these and other difficulties with solutions built on the foundation of PlatformDIGITAL®.
Watch the fireside chat to hear RACKSPACE CTO, Jeff DeVerter, discuss how they leverage Digital Realty’s global colocation and PlatformDIGITAL’s Data Hub, to help businesses remove data centralization barriers for greater mobility and control, while also reducing hyper-scaler transmit fees.
