TYSONS CORNER, VA, July 29, 2019 — David Peed, vice president and general manager of Equinix, has said federal agencies need to build on their network infrastructure or network hubs as the first in a four-step approach to advance their efforts to modernize their information technology and data center operations, ExecutiveBiz reported July 18.

Peed wrote in a company blog post published July 17 that beyond network optimization, utilizing a hybrid multicloud platform with software-defined virtual connections, implementing distributed security controls at the edge and distributing data from automated monitoring, inventory and management tools for analysis are the three other steps that agencies can take to have a "digital ready" IT infrastructure.
