Data Center Blog
As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the globe, content delivery network (CDN) providers were quickly thrust into the world’s spotlight. People everywhere depended on CDNs to quickly and smoothly connect them to news, entertainment, education, social media, training, virtual events, videoconferencing, telemedicine … the list goes on and on.
In today’s world, we see data anywhere and everywhere. Data comes in different shapes and sizes, such as video, voice, text, photos, objects, maps, charts, and spreadsheets. Can you imagine life without a smartphone, social apps, GPS, ride-hailing, or e-commerce? Data is at the center of how we consume and experience all these services.
It is no surprise that the demand for data centers has increased since March 2020. With so many people turning to digital entertainment, a work from home lifestyle, and remote schooling environments, this increase in network traffic is leaving online technology-based companies looking for data center space beyond the scope of their on-premises resources.
RagingWire (now part of the Global Data Centers Division of NTT Ltd.) is continuing to monitor and respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak that is currently impacting communities across our service areas and the nation, and our hearts go out to all those affected.
Our security and operations teams want to remind everyone entering any of our data centers of the mandatory requirement that masks must be worn during your entire time in the data center. We also are asking everyone to follow social distancing protocols and walk/work 6 feet apart.
