Packet is bringing its “go anywhere” bare metal cloud to Detroit, where it will work with EdgeConneX to expand Sprint’s Curiosity IoT infrastructure to support the auto industry.
Insights and Trends on Edge Computing
Data is everywhere. As a digital transformation sweeps across our society and economy, Internet infrastructure must follow the data. Enter edge computing, which extends data processing and storage closer to the growing universe of devices and sensors at the edge of the network.
The goal of edge computing is to process data and services as close to the end user as possible. It’s an architecture that allows the compute and content delivery process to happen within 10 milliseconds or less of the user. The trend driving the edge computing model is the increased use of consumer mobile devices, especially consumption of video and virtual reality content and the growth of sensors as part of the Internet of Things.
Cloud, social, SaaS and mobile companies will benefit from strategic, proximity-based edge computing infrastructure. Phillip Marangella of EdgeConneX explores the factors guiding hyperscale demand at the edge.
Tony Bishop, Senior Vice President, Platform & Ecosystem Strategy at Digital Realty, explores how to weather today’s perfect storm of digital data, IT leaders must adopt a strategy that implements local network ingress/egress within proximity to centers of data exchange, interconnected to digital ecosystems and tailored to business needs.
Chief Marketing Officer at EdgeConneX, Phillip Marangella, highlights how creating a successful build-to-order data center is directly tied to edge solutions. Explore the edge, in “whatever shape it needs to be.”
Jeff Klaus, General Manager of Intel Data Center Management Solutions, explores how for remote facilities at the edge of the network, DCIM Solutions are key to supporting enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) and big data.
Part of the answer to today’s data challenges lies in the proliferation of edge computing and data centers. Download the new report from Evoque, “Exploring the Edge with Adequate Data Centers,” that highlights how edge computing and data centers can address the big data challenges of today.
What types of edge computing are most relevant in 2019? In our DCF Executive Roundtable, executives from RagingWire Data Centers, Cyxtera Technologies, EdgeConneX, Iron Mountain, Intel and Chatsworth Products debate the topic.
Edge applications will require new thinking, and efficient use of resources. We kick off our “Facets of the Edge” series with a look at how SWIM.AI uses lightweight hardware to power edge AI for real-time traffic management.
More people across the globe are using the internet, and broadband speeds are rising. The consumption of online videos continues to spike. A recent white paper from EdgeConneX addresses this very issue, and poses a potential response, or answer to these concerns: Edge Data Centers, or EDCs. Download the new EdgeConneX report focused on how the use of localized EDCs can produce transport cost savings, while also improving the experience for end-users.
Investors are looking to build broad-based portfolios of digital assets, including data centers, telecom towers, fiber and antennas. Recent examples include Digital Colony’s deal for Zayo Group, and American Tower’s entry into colocation.
