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 computing specialist EdgeMicro has shifted into active development, with data center construction projects underway in five new markets, the company said last week.
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.
EdgeConneX has agreed to be acquired by EQT Infrastructure, which says it hopes to accelerate the growth of the developer, which has been a leading player in both edge computing and hyperscale data center markets.
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.”
As demand continues to spike amid the COVID-19 pandemic, user experience is more critical than ever before. A new report from EdgeConneX outlines strategies to boost capacity, lower latency and reduce costs for network-intensive apps.
In 2020, edge computing is entering a key transition phase, as an emerging ecosystem confronts the challenges and opportunities of a world transformed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Phillip Marangella, CMO for EdgeConneX explores how user experience can make or break a company in the data center industry and beyond. Edge data centers may serve as a solution to achieve the speed, power and availability necessary to serve today’s clients.
