365 Data Center Growth Highlights Mid-Tier
The Rayno Report, Scott Raynovich – 2/26/15
One thing that's happening is that mid-tier cities are getting built to put people closer to data and applications. Proximity is important when new technologies at the network’s edge deliver higher bandwidth content to customers. Whether it’s high-speed cable, fiber, or 4G LTE, network throughput at the edge is expected to increase by a multiple of 10 within the next decade. These trends point to the necessity for a more distributed architecture.
