South Florida Businesses: Make 365 Data Centers Part of Your 2018 Hurricane Season Preparations

Last year Hurricane Irma devastated the South Florida coast with winds reaching 185 mph, making it the second most intense tropical cyclone worldwide in 2017. Unfortunately, several South Florida communities sustained significant damage in the wake of the record-breaking storm. An estimated 3.4 million homes in Miami alone were left without power, which is only a fraction of the approximate 16.5 million people who lost power throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.

Edge Colocation: Opening a ‘Whole New World’ for Content Providers

For decades, data centers have traditionally been housed in large tier one cities (Think New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc.) for a variety of reasons: large populations, plenty of real-estate for facilities, close geographic access to large metro fiber networks – among others.

Sure, content providers need to reach the eyeballs of viewers in tier one cities and ultimately interconnect with the networks that deliver the content, but what about viewers on the outskirts of tier two cities like Nashville, Indianapolis, Tampa Bay and the numerous other cities throughout the country that don’t boast huge population statistics?
