Intel has begun a pilot program for new chips that combine traditional Intel CPUs with field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), semiconductors that can be reprogrammed to perform specialized computing tasks for cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Insights: Internet of Things
The Internet of Things will create millions of connected devices, generating data from homes, cars and the vast reaches of industrial infrastructure. Data will be everywhere, and many of the new digital conversations will involve machines talking to other machines. It will have major implications for the data center industry, requiring infrastructure in locations that have not traditionally been business markets for data centers. These technologies will be rolled out over many years, as users gradually wrap their arms around the rapidly-growing universe of protocols, applications and use cases.
In this week’s Voices of the Industry, Samir Shah of BASELAYER explains how today’s data centers are no longer simple compute environments, but rather complex systems tying together physical infrastructure to the applications we consume on daily basis.
In this white paper, we explore new concepts around data center demand, where energy efficiency and cooling optimization fit in and modern best practices around your data center.
Josh Moody of FORTRUST looks at how data center managers will need to deploy more forward-looking capacity management to be able to proactively meet the business priorities associated with IoT
Streaming video and the Internet of Things are changing the data center landscape. As content companies move data closer to end users, more data center space will be needed at the edge of the network.
In the near future, keeping data as close to your end users as possible will become one of the primary goals in developing a corporate data center strategy, according to Compass Datacenters CEO Chris Crosby.
New projects are using balloons, drones, lasers and satellites to bring wireless Internet to underserved markets. These initiatives have major implications for where data centers are located and how they’re built and powered.
The explosive growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) presents both opportunities and challenges for data center operators, according to Chris Crosby, CEO of Compass Datacenters.
