The Business Edge is drawing closer, as seen in a flurry of announcements that showcase the many ways stakeholders in distributed computing are stepping up their investment and deploying real-world edge infrastructure.
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.
Brian Eichman, Director of Solution Architecture and Product Development at CoreSite, explores what the rise of the autonomous market and connected vehicle industry means for the data industry, as well as the role latency and edge computing play in this evolution.
It’s a new landscape, with challenges posed by the pandemic as well as concerns about climate change. Innovation in advanced connectivity, healthcare solutions, and energy storage offers significant opportunities to harness new ways of thinking to help your organization succeed in this fast-moving world while meeting sustainability and resiliency goals. Join Rich Miller, Bill Kleyman and other industry experts for this webinar on September 30 at 2 ET.
Amazon Web Services is adding a second Local Zone edge node in Los Angeles, providing single-digit millisecond latency to customers. AWS says users are tapping Local Zones to run hybrid environments and support latency-intensive tasks like game rendering.
Deploying edge computing infrastructure can be challenging for end users, who must adapt their models and processes for a smaller, denser environment to process more services and user data. There are three common challenges reported by end users working with edge designs: Defining the use case, inexperience with edge deployments and data management concerns.
Edge, clouds and robots. Those were the hot topics on Data Center Frontier last month. Here are our 10 most popular stories in August 2020, in order of article views.
Edge computing specialist EdgeMicro has shifted into active development, with data center construction projects underway in five new markets, the company said last week.
Jeff Klaus, General Manager of Intel Data Center Management Solutions at Intel, explores the connection between server health and edge cloud environments, and data center management optimization.
For edge computing to succeed, advances in proximity and latency must translate into business value. Who are the users driving demand for edge computing? And what are the use cases that will deliver on this new architecture?
With its acquisition by EQT, EdgeConneX will have more resources to deliver capacity quickly, and in new places. It will also look to expand through acquisitions, says CEO Randy Brouckman.
