Data Center Interconnectivity: A Keystone to Business Strategy

The modern data center is no longer just a single node housing all of your information. Rather, through the power of data center interconnectivity, the entire environment has been transformed into a massive world of shared resources, intelligent connectivity and vast capabilities to scale. Today, there’s a dynamic cloud and data center environment that is the basis for global business.

Business is now more virtual, geographically dispersed and mobile than ever, with companies building new data centers and clustering servers in separate locations. The challenge is that companies vary hugely in scale, scope and direction. Many are doing things not even imagined two decades ago, yet all of them rely on the ability to connect, manage and distribute large stores of data.

The next wave of innovation relies on the ability to do connect, manage and distribute your data dynamically.

When determining which companies to connect with, where to make those connections, and for what purposes, your business strategy is at the core of your data center strategy. In this white paper from Equinix, you quickly learn about the importance of creating an interconnected data center model spanning cloud, SaaS, network, and even IT service providers.


So how can intelligent interconnectivity help? Here are a few ways:

  • Interconnectivity equals more data center and business opportunities.
  • Interconnectivity brings your cloud and organization close to “the Internet of Everything (IoE).”
  • Creating your own globally dispersed interconnected cloud platform.

Download this white paper today to learn about the power of a cloud and data center model that can help your organization stay globally connected. In creating your own infrastructure, the power of interconnectivity will allow you to span more regions, stay more resilient, and control your critical resources much more efficiently. As Brian Lillie, CTO of Equinix points out, “If you don’t make the right data center choice, your ability to collaborate with partners, customers, and suppliers worldwide is severely compromised [or is not what it could be]. Which means your ability to innovate and compete suffers. So does your business growth.”
