To support big data in the cloud, internet communities need more distributed, open ecosystems. Proposed Open IX models free datacentres to exploit exchange-level interconnections; paving the way for ‘metro-style’, peer-to-peer data hubs that bring seamless, unlimited and redundant cloud - and real-time access irrespective of location - one step closer.
