Network Latency vs. Compute Latency

by Haifeng Li

When we say the word “latency,” most people have a specific definition in mind: the delay that occurs while a system waits for a packet to finish moving over a network. This definition is technically correct, but it’s also incomplete. There are multiple types of latency, and this definition only accounts for one of them: network latency. As digital infrastructure has expanded to circle the globe and applications have become more distributed, it’s understandable that many people would be so focused on solving for network latency that they’d fail to consider any other kind. We believe it’s time ..read more

Most people don’t think about data centers in the course of their day-to-day lives. Even as they use the internet for entertainment, directions, banking, shopping and more, they don’t consider that there are physical buildings somewhere that enable all of that. The term “cloud computing” actually has some believing all of that “magic” is happening somewhere out in the atmosphere. Since today is International Data Center Day, it’s the perfect opportunity to share the integral role data centers play in our modern society and economy. Data centers enable everything from content streaming and soci ..read more

How to Do Private AI
The Equinix » Cloud Security
by Milind Wagle
1M ago
While the potential benefits of AI speak for themselves, enterprises need a measured, strategic approach to pursue those benefits without placing their valuable intellectual property at risk. This is why many businesses are starting to build their own AI models, host those models on private infrastructure, and use only proprietary datasets to train them. This concept is known as private AI. Many enterprises now recognize that when they feed sensitive data into public AI services such as ChatGPT, that data gets trained into the model. In turn, this means the data could be exposed to anyone who ..read more

When we mention data centers in the Nordic countries, many people tend to focus on the climate and the landscape. They think data center operators primarily invest in the region because of the colder temperatures that enable energy-efficient cooling and the wide availability of land that’s well suited for renewable energy projects. While these factors certainly help, it would be a mistake to forget about everything else the region has to offer. The Nordic countries are poised to become a new digital hotbed within Europe because of their unique combination of robust digital infrastructure and a ..read more
