It’s a pursuit that lives on today, as we all attempt to find our own “Holy Grail” manifested in new and unique methods, services or technologies that make our lives easier.

How the Internet of Things is Pushing the Edge

By: Clint Heiden, Chief Commercial Officer, EdgeConneX

Clint Heiden EdgeConneXAccording to Cisco’s 2014-2019 Global Cloud Index (GCI), by 2019, cloud traffic will consume the vast majority of all data center traffic – 83 percent to be exact. At that time, annual cloud IP traffic will reach 8.6 zettabytes, growing more than four-fold since 2014. With this incredible growth of cloud and data center traffic on the horizon, the need has emerged to distribute cloud infrastructure to more locations at the edge of the network. Today’s consumers and enterprises demand the “Internet of Everywhere” for things like 4K content streaming, real-time interactive gaming, industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing – applications that today’s traditional Internet and network architectures can no longer adequately support. The Internet of Everywhere can only be enabled by deploying highly distributed network architecture closer in proximity to end-users. This new Edge of the Internet was created and perfected by EdgeConneX®, a company that specializes in global infrastructure at the Edge of the network.
