Global data volumes are growing at an average of 63% per month.(1) It’s estimated that by 2025, over 463 exabytes of data will be created every day.(2) The COVID-19 pandemic and shift to remote working has also spurred this rapid acceleration of data growth and need for low latency, especially at the edge. The explosion of data combined with an existing infrastructure that meets the need for physical proximity to customers worldwide have put organizations in a unique position to leverage edge, cloud and core solutions. It’s an emerging opportunity for enterprises to turn global data growth and data exchange across platforms into strategic assets and a competitive advantage. This will require moving beyond traditional IT architecture to pervasively connected data communities colocated at centers of data.

The digital economy continues to remake enterprises across all industries, transforming how they create and deliver value. Unlimited data, maximum uptime and strong cyber security are still essential offerings. Yet enterprise customers also need support and expertise in how to manage complex public cloud, private cloud and edge services. Exponential data growth and the increasing amount of data creation sources further contribute to the complexity of IT infrastructure. A connected community approach allows for integration between core, cloud and edge at centers of data exchange, implementing a secure, data-centric hybrid IT architecture at global points of presence deployed in multi-tenant datacenters. This strategy will allow organizations to deliver faster data access and aggregation, secure data near the customer and effectively embed edge, cloud, core solutions.
