Vapor IO edge data centers will serve as launch stations and data hubs for Hangar drones as they fly missions to collect and analyze oceans of business data.
As the Open Compute Project matures, leading players say the next wave of growth for OCP hardware may come from telecom companies.
Here are the eight themes that will shape the data center and cloud business in 2018, according to thought leaders interviewed by Data Center Frontier.
Vapor IO has unveiled its vision for edge computing, powered by a platform using cloud concepts to create a high availability colocation network across clusters of compute nodes.
Data center startup EdgeMicro is the latest in a series of ventures targeting the market for edge computing, and plans to roll out more than 500 micro data centers at cell towers.
DataBank and Vertical Bridge are partnering to build a network of micro data centers at the base of cell towers to support demand for edge computing.
Telcos hope to deploy tens of thousands of small cell and DAS antenna systems to support next-generation 5G wireless broadband connectivity. Here’s a look at what this may mean for data centers.
The arrival of next-generation 5G wireless is expected to bring widespread disruption of American business, as low-latency connections enable new services. 5G broadband also will mean more data traffic, and more business for data centers.
Data center startup Vapor IO will team with Crown Castle to deploy Project Volutus, a distributed network of small data centers at the base of telecom towers.
Autonomous vehicles will be like supercomputers rolling down the highway, generating up to 4 terabytes of data per day. That could translate into massive demand for data centers and wireless infrastructure.
