Local stakeholders and community members can sometimes be overlooked in data center site selection, but they can be the data center operator’s most important ally. Stack Infrastructure and Data Center Frontier finish up a new special report series.
Data centers require reliable, robust and scalable network connections. These needs should be considered early in the planning process. A new Data Center Frontier report series continues to explore the ins and outs of data center site selection.
Data centers require lots of power, and users need to understand local utilities and their capacity and reliability. That’s why knowing the grid is crucial in data center site selection.
A data center is a long-term investment, and choosing a location requires being sensitive both the needs of the business and the surrounding community. A new special report series, courtesy of Stack Infrastructure,, looks at 5 keys to success in data center site selection.
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.
Silicon Valley — one of the largest and most important data center markets in the U.S. — has entered a new phase of acceleration and competition, and is positioned for its strongest growth in years.
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?
Edge computing is poised to revolutionize the way we communicate, share data, and access critical resources. Edge ecosystems are specifically designed to help bring core services, data, parts of the cloud, and applications far closer to the user than ever before. This is an excerpt from a special report, sponsored by Panduit.
As edge computing takes shape, we are approaching the brink of a new phase for global Internet infrastructure. Edge computing is evolving in tiers, with opportunities in regional data hubs, cities, telecom towers and on devices. Think of it in terms of “edge, edgier and edgiest.”
When done right, Hybrid IT enables businesses with an on-premises and multi-cloud strategy to optimize cost across these resources. Here’s a clear step-by-step approach to a hybrid IT approach done right from a new special report series, sponsored by Panduit.
