Schneider Electric’s Steven Carlini and Andres Vasquez discuss building data centers at the network edge while also meeting sustainability goals.
Enterprises today are mixing and matching data center, cloud, and colocation to balance their needs for stable production, rapid prototyping and development, security, and growing requirements for hyperscaling and customized high-performance compute. A new DCF special report courtesy of NTT explores the strengths and challenges of each solution.
JD Cloud collaborated with Intel to develop a system that uses MCA Recovery and MFP to reduce data center downtime caused by memory failures.
Applications like cloud services, gaming, ADAS, VR, and social media are requiring more than what a centralized DC can provide them – lower latency, faster connectivity, higher bandwidth, better performance. Danny Gonzalez of Anritsu shares insights on how to test your edge network to ensure it’s delivering what your customers’ applications need.
Raul Martynek, CEO at DataBank, refines the definition of edge computing. This is the first of a three-part series looking at the edge from the multiple perspectives of enterprises using and driving edge development: hyperscalers, SaaS application/ content developers, and network providers. In this article, we examine how hyperscale cloud providers see the edge and the role they are playing in its development.
JP Laqueur, Senior Vice President of Marketing at DataBank, explores the close ties between cloud strategy and success and data center strategy and approaches.
The role of distributed IT is shifting. This is true for retail locations, branch offices, university campuses or manufacturing plants, and has been for a while. But these days, with almost every organization becoming more digitized, “the number of these sites is increasing, and their role is changing,” said Vertiv. A new white paper from Vertiv outlines how connectivity, cloud computing, big data and mobile applications can work together to enable a new service paradigm for remote sites that increases visibility, reduces downtime and supports optimization of these vital IT resources.
Anthony Bolner, EVP of Stream Data Centers, explores the leading trends pushing more hyperscalers and cloud providers to use wholesale data centers.
With the potential stemming from new technology like machine learning, AI, big data and more, tech companies continue to make up one of the fastest growing industry segments. A new report from Digital Realty explores the potential of the hybrid cloud, which according to the report, has emerged as a way to “drive down IT costs, greater agility and speed when embracing new business opportunities, and the ability to protect critical business data and applications from external and internal threats.”
The hyperscale data center is reshaping the global IT landscape, shifting data from on-premises computer rooms and IT closets to massive centralized data center hubs. Explore further how cloud campuses will continue to enable hyperscale operators to rapidly add server capacity and electric power.
