Global Capacity’s ongoing strategy of network roll-out, whereby it brings high-speed Internet and a comprehensive portfolio of high quality, cost-effective, scalable data connectivity services to more than 9.6 million commercial sites, took another giant leap forward last week. The leading connectivity as a service company expanded its One Marketplace™ network with a metropolitan fiber ring in the Washington, D.C. area. The nation’s Capitol and the surrounding region have long been a major Internet and network exchange point. The 54-mile diversely routed fiber ring will interconnect the company’s Points of Presence (PoP) located within the Level 3 1755 Old Meadow Road, McLean, VA facility and the Equinix Ashburn, VA data center. The Ashburn data center, where One Marketplace is connected into the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ through a direct Ethernet connection, is a major East Coast hub for Cloud and application service providers.
It is estimated that, by 2018, more than 60 percent of organizations will have moved their infrastructure onto cloud platforms. As more enterprises migrate to the cloud, the demands for performance and dependability will rise. The network is one of the key components affecting user experience for cloud users. The throughput of a cloud network will determine how much time it takes a user to transmit data between their servers, while the latency will determine how much delay the user will experience in communicating between their servers.

When analyzing the effectiveness of a data center, one of the most critical components to consider is Power Usage Efficiency(PUE), a metric used across the board by mission-critical facility implementation teams, data center owners and operators, and C-level executives to assess a data center’s current and potential energy efficiency. When used properly, this information can be leveraged to produce a stronger, more efficient mission-critical environment, gain a deeper understanding of competition, and open the door to exploring options for added efficiency improvements such as data center renovations, new builds, or migrations to the cloud or a third-party service provider. In order for a facility to both evolve and adapt to ever-changing industry climates and customer demands, a deep understanding of what lies under the hood is vital to its success, and data center PUE is no exception.
