Bandwidth IG and Digital Realty are teaming up to create stronger, more diverse connections between Digital Realty’s data centers in Silicon Valley and Atlanta, two of the largest data center markets in the U.S.
Digital Realty’s Data Gravity Index DGx™ projects that Forbes global 2000 enterprises will be adding storage at a combined rate of more than 620 terabytes per second for data aggregation and exchange across 53 metros by 2024. This increasing demand for connectivity will require the fast and reliable connections that new infrastructure provides in between data centers and the customers they serve. Bandwidth IG’s brand-new dark fiber paths will enable stronger connectivity options between Digital Realty’s data centers, as well as primary connections to its global partners across two key markets.
Silicon Valley Network Transformation
Bandwidth IG currently reaches 13 Digital Realty data centers in Silicon Valley, including its newly announced facility, which is under development at 641 Walsh in Santa Clara. Bandwidth IG has deployed multiple brand-new dark fiber paths that will enable diverse connectivity options between Digital Realty’s new and existing data centers, as well as primary connections to its global partners across Silicon Valley.
Atlanta Network Transformation
In Atlanta, Bandwidth IG currently provides diverse connectivity to all Digital Realty locations. This includes the highly connected internet hub of 56 Marietta, which is owned and operated by Digital Realty and has become increasingly important as the strategic gateway to the Southeast.
“As two of the top data center markets in the U.S., Silicon Valley and Atlanta are home to businesses that are increasingly reliant on processing large data sets to run their enterprise. Our customers, either digitally transformed or on their way, look for four things in their network – low signal loss, low-latency, diversity and inventory. In essence, they need the high-quality connectivity that only brand-new, dark fiber networks can provide.” – Jim Nolte, CEO for Bandwidth IG.
Recognizing the exponential growth that will continue as a result of the increased pace of digital business adoption, Digital Realty transformed its approach to data connectivity by adding to its coverage footprint and by working with technology enablers, like Bandwidth IG, in a more collaborative way.
