Tier 2 Data Center Market Booming
Light Reading, Carol Wilson – 1/19/2015
The rapid growth in demand from these smaller markets is reshaping the networks and data centers that serve them, say both Kazmierczak and Scanlon. The focus of the 365 Data Centers/TSIC partnership is to bring the 100-gig connections into good interconnect locations and match it with data center capacity to make it easier for both the broadband ISPs and those delivering content and applications to meet consumer demand.
All of this is being fueled by the growth in online video content and applications, including always-on connectivity for mobile phone apps and Internet of Things deployments such as connected cars, Kazmierczak says.
