Fiber Internet Brings Cloud-Based Solution Improvements

Cloud adoption has exploded over the last several years. Organizations have implemented a wide range of cloud-based solutions for a variety of reasons. This includes applications for tackling daily tasks to adopting cloud-based data centers where their information is securely stored and duplicated for disaster recovery and business continuity purposes.

One thing is certain: data centers are not what they once were, which were solely regional facilities that served a very specific, local audience. They were large and centralized (and some still are). But that model is fast evolving, thanks in part to fiber internet but also to the changing needs of organizations that use them.

For example, by 2030, there is an expected expenditure of more than a trillion dollars related to the internet of things (IoT). These devices collect vast amounts of data and there’s a demand for secure data storage to accommodate it. Edge computing has been the solution for gathering this data closer to the point of origination, also allowing for fast distribution. Fiber internet is allowing for quicker response times, giving organizations the option for real-time processing and analyzing their workflow at a granular level.

Safely Capturing the Data

If you’re wary of putting all your eggs in one basket, so to speak, you’re like many other companies that approach public and private cloud storage solutions cautiously. Most enterprises use nearly three private clouds on average and just over 2.5 public clouds. It’s almost like they’re diversifying an investment portfolio, and it makes good sense.

This “spreading the wealth” approach has necessitated the growth of data centers, which again is being assisted by fiber internet technology. This is also pushing the edge computing concept into a widely adopted strategy. Gartner’s research on the topic shows that while only 10% of organizations used edge computing in 2018, by 2025 that number will skyrocket to 75%.

But what about external forces, such as power surges, storms (tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.) and various other damages that can occur? Gaining uninterrupted access to cloud services will require some special requirements, including automated tools that will remediate the various problems that will occur in the field.

Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I would highly recommend Safari Events to any vendor in need of voice and data services

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
