The Digital Realty Service Exchange provides private, secure, high-throughput and low-latency access over a single interface to IBM Cloud as well as other service providers, overcoming some of the limitations of the public Internet and helping to eliminate network congestion and enable critical workloads that may not have been previously feasible such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain technology. Service Exchange enables users to manage physical and virtual connections through a single port and gives them the visibility and reporting capabilities they need to address their connectivity requirements more quickly and efficiently.
