Data centre announce plans to facilitate and speed up data flows across networks

Digital Realty has announced a plan to create next-generation interconnection and colocation as an answer to the explosion of enterprise data around the world. The 300 data centre strong firm has officially accelerated its efforts to create next-generation interconnection and security capabilities whilst building the largest key centres of data exchange.

Their bold move will work to facilitate and speed up data flows across networks by linking different parts of the network via more automated, intelligent and seamless software. This should then provide a solution to help manage the infrastructure and provide a much better service to their customers.


This collaborative approach aims to unlock value and remove barriers to digital transformation by closely aligning with hybrid IT. They claim that while businesses across the globe shift towards hybrid IT, Digital Realty is in a great position to enable their customer’s growth through globally secure and software-defined interconnection.


Furthermore, Digital Realty is extremely passionate about working to power next-generation interconnection and security capabilities that they hope will unlock the real potential of digital transformation.


Building upon new and existing capabilities, the initiative brings on platforms such as PlatformDIGITAL, their global data centre - already bringing over 4,000 participants in connected data communities around the world, and Zayo’s global fire network.


This collaboration closely follows Digital Realty’s announcement of its plan to build SDN-enabled multi-platform orchestration as well as global fabric connectivity across their global platform. They’re branding their innovations as a ‘force-multiplier’ in building the industries largest open fabric of fabrics.


In fact, Digital Realty is even predicting that Forbes global 2000 enterprises will soon be adding storage at a rate of more than 620 terabytes per second for data aggregation by 2024. This large growth in data reflects a growing trend among global customers towards connecting large, private data infrastructure across multiple global locations.


Gartner also predicts that by 2023, 50% of the primary data responsibility and analytic leaders will consist of data created, managed and analysed in edge environments.


Ultimately, a new prevalent data centre infrastructure is essential to enable digitised endpoints and mobile users to fully take advantage of globally distributed workflows. Removing legacy barriers across the interconnection industry will enable connected data communities to support transformative outcomes for customers across the world and across industries.
