Our Data Center Executive Roundtable gazes into the future shape of edge computing, examining how IoT and latency issues will guide edge deployments:
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.
The Internet of Things is changing the way we live and do business, from developments with smart cities, to connected cars and more. Here’s a look at the latest IoT trends and how they are impacting the data center industry.
The Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing are changing modern life. In our new “Data Driven” series, we examine the volume of data generated by the IoT and how it will impact demand for data centers.
LinkedIn sees edge computing as a huge driver of infrastructure growth. The company has begun deploying edge data centers, and using the Open19 project as a platform for future design innovations to power smaller facilities.
The technology to enable smart cities is close at hand, but political and cultural challenges will take longer to resolve. That was the key takeaway from a Think Tank on smart cities at the Infrastructure Masons Leadership Summit.
Former Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy reflected on the legacy of Sun, its role in the open source movement, and the power of culture and education in a talk at the recent Infrastructure Masons Leadership Summit.
Data center providers are seeking to clarify their strategies for edge computing. In a complex, multi-tier edge landscape, there will likely be many flavors of success.
As IoT evolves, managing assets and white space remotely becomes more challenging. A comprehensive and reliable solution that works together to simplify operation, costs and labor, as well as allows for network expansion is key. In the edition of Voices of the Industry, Ashish Moondra, Senior Product Manager, Power, Electronics & Software, at Chatsworth Products, explores how to simplify data center operation in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Edge computing is a hot topic. Here’s our guide to the new players on the edge, which includes both startups and established names in the data center sector.
