Too much of a good thing – How can global networks help manage data explosion

Genius Wong, President, Global Network, Cloud and Data Center Services, Tata Communications | July 21, 2016
Genius elaborates on the increasing volume of data, and how best technology providers can manage unstructured data in today’s world of digitally connected social networks.

Unifying cloud storage and the network makes data that bit less unwieldly, translating complexity into convenience. A unified cloud infrastructure, brought together through a centrally managed network, is quicker, cheaper and (most importantly) one less thing to worry about.

Linking into a globally connected network - with dedicated routes around the world - is therefore the natural next step for any organisation migrating to the cloud. Simplicity is essential when faced by the challenge of growing data volumes. By leveraging a high speed, secure and reliable network, data stored in the cloud can be accessed on demand, without the unnecessary barriers of fragmentation.

This has the potential to transform the way a business can operate, doing away with the hang-ups and bottlenecks that can make the move to the cloud a challenging experience.

Cloud storage, compute and delivery have grown up as a single infrastructure delivered by multiple vendors. The data boom should make us re-examine that. As the burden grows, simplicity will become king, mixed infrastructure isn't perfectly designed for that challenge.
