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.
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 our Executive Roundtable, data center thought leaders debate the most promising opportunities in edge computing, in terms of location, form factor and timing.
