“Video is inhibiting networks to scale quickly and efficiently in order to provide consumers the best user experience,” remarks Heiden.  “This insatiable demand for video calls for a redefined physical landscape of today’s Internet.  At EdgeConneX, we are creating that new Internet edge by designing and deploying purpose-built Edge Data Centers closest to key broadband provider aggregation points to ensure lowest latency, high quality video delivery.”

Server Farm Realty Among First Data Centers to Accept Bitcoin Payments

Server Farm RealtyBitcoin is a decentralized, digital currency that has been gaining traction as an alternative payment option for companies that operate and deliver services and solutions via Internet.  In order to pay with bitcoin, companies are required to have an address, or ‘safety deposit box’, for the digital currency.  In order to access the bitcoins, each company must also have a unique, digital ‘private’ key that it leverages to sign a message indicating the input, amount and output address as well as the designated recipient.  Then, the bitcoin wallet distributes the payment via a third-party provider who measures and verifies it, decoding the message to complete the transaction.  Bitcoin exchanges and secure transaction engines such as BitPay and Coinbase help merchants accept and manage this digital currency.  Major companies such as PayPal, Overstock.com, eBay, WorldPress.com, and Reddit have announced acceptance of Bitcoin as a payment option.  Now, the practice has also extended to the data center industry.
