Businesses also want flexibility in selecting which public cloud is used and the ability to move between clouds. Connecting private and public cloud remains challenging, however.

  • Launching A Content Fabric

    Distributing digital content, especially video, is the largest single use of the Internet. Content distributors have relied on a mix of central servers connected to a large storage library, combined with distributed edge content delivery servers. These edge-servers store the most active content, preloaded into them from the central server.

    ZZZBodyZZZBEG Back in the 1970s, it was popular for businesses to rent time using big, mainframe computer systems.

Instead, they were owned by large corporations, government agencies, and universities. Microprocessor technology allowed for great reductions in size and expense, leading to the advent of the personal computer, which exploded in popularity in the 1980s.
