It can be hard to encapsulate what's going on in the data center market at any given point in time.

There's so much happening in so many places, driven by so many different factors.

But never fear, Jon Hjembo is here—with the development trends and pricing expectations that he delivered during his review of the interconnection sector at PTC '22. 

Understanding the Multicloud-Verse of Madness

We're going to talk about the cloud. More specifically, cloud outages and how to avoid them and mitigate their impacts.

There's no way we can dig into this topic without touching on multicloud strategies.

What Problem is the Middle Mile Trying to Solve?

As global enterprises become more reliant on cloud—and start to break away or reduce their traditional MPLS circuits—the “middle mile” of the internet is coming into focus. 

Today, I want to examine the use cases that vendors hope to address through middle mile network services. (And their basic value proposition.)

Traversing the Internet’s Middle Mile

“Middle mile” loosely refers to the network segment between local access and destination network.

From the perspective of a potential customer, it might refer to whatever happens between its connection with the service provider and its application in the cloud.

Enhanced Internet Backbone for a Multi-cloud and Hybrid WAN Era

As workload migration to the cloud becomes the standard, enterprises are redesigning their WAN backbones to ameliorate internet performance.

However, improving your internet performance isn’t so easy-breezy when you're wrestling with unknowns—like the perfect combination of broadband and direct internet access or the right ISPs to modernize your network with.

Data, Devices, and the Risks of Our Digital World

We wanted to pop by and share a few summer stories that our team has been reading lately.

We suggest you start with the Foreign Policy number we linked below. This piece prods at the geography of digitalization—more specifically, the "systemic vulnerabilities across public and private networks and dangerous weaknesses in supply chains."

NaaS, Cloud, and the Future of 5G

Listeners know that we've covered middle mile and NaaS on this show. And we've touched on the various companies that are emerging around these issues. Today we're getting extra perspective from one of those companies.
