Data Gravity - The Emergence of Data Gravity and Why You Should Care

As organizations adopt and migrate infrastructure to the cloud, data outside the cloud starts to gravitate to those applications running in the cloud. As more data is pulled closer to that infrastructure this increasing amount of information has the potential to reduce application latency and increase business efficiencies, ultimately having a positive impact on the end user’s experience. 



Data Gravity is having an impact on your business - As organizations adopt and migrate infrastructure to the cloud, data outside the cloud starts to gravitate to those applications running in the cloud. As more data is pulled closer to that infrastructure this increasing amount of information has the potential to reduce application latency and increase business efficiencies, ultimately having a positive impact on the end user’s experience. The idea of transforming operations through the use and placement of data is revolutionary, and while some production workloads still remain ineligible for the cloud, AWS, Google, Microsoft and others continue to refine what data storage and analysis mean. Now more than ever it makes more sense for enterprises to move more workloads and applications to the cloud. However, as stated, not all data and applications are well suited for cloud deployment.

This is where bi-modal, hybrid cloud infrastructures come in.Businesses can now utilize the cloud to host their data core while still maintaining on-premises or collocated data centers for the business infrastructure they may not want in the cloud.

Increasingly, organizations are leveraging hybrid deployments when seeking out the best means of cloud adoption. Hybrid Cloud offerings allow businesses to strike the ideal balance between private and public options, taking advantage of the security price efficiency and most important, latency reducing benefits.

This white paper shows how Datapipe and Equinix worked together on a proof of concept project for the Equinix Advertisers Internet Exchange (Ad-IX™). Ad-IX, a subset of the Equinix IX platform, to form the world’s first global ecosystem designed exclusively to accelerate bidding and trading of ad inventory and how this lead to highly efficient infrastructure applicable for businesses in any industry.
