Data Center Interconnection: Enabling Digital Transformation

Digital transformation, driven by rapid advances in technology and customer expectations, is impacting every industry and disrupting many. Businesses need their IT teams to help accelerate growth and avoid competitive threats. But with growing digitization, IT infrastructure is becoming increasingly distributed. Mobile users want to consume services from wherever they are. IT is leveraging SaaS applications and public cloud infrastructure to avoid on-premise deployments. Databases must be managed securely in the company’s data center. Data needs to be collected and analyzed from IoT devices. Information needs to be shared with partners.

However, legacy infrastructure and local communications providers may not be able to meet the bandwidth, latency, location, cost and schedule requirements necessary to help businesses realize their digital goals. CIOs need to shed those constraints and enhance their agility to win in today’s business environment.

The Colocation Solution for Interconnection: DCB:CX

DC BLOX has created its Connectivity eXchange to address the need for agile, efficient and resilient interconnectivity in underserved markets across the Southeast. The DC BLOX Connectivity eXchange (DCB-CX) is an interconnection platform that enables participants anywhere within the DC BLOX connectivity ecosystem to peer across a high-bandwidth, low-latency software-defined fabric.

Each DC BLOX data center is an exchange point (EXP) on the DCB-CX, enabling private peering and connectivity relationships. The DCB-CX is where carriers, ISPs, content delivery networks, hyperscale cloud providers, research institutions, rural broadband providers, and enterprise networks connect locally, regionally, and globally. The DCB-CX offers low-latency connectivity across its footprint providing virtual connections to built-in carriers, public cloud providers, regional Internet Exchanges (IX) and participating entities.
