More people across the globe are using the internet, and broadband speeds are rising. The consumption of online videos continues to spike. A recent white paper from EdgeConneX addresses this very issue, and poses a potential response, or answer to these concerns: Edge Data Centers, or EDCs. Download the new EdgeConneX report focused on how the use of localized EDCs can produce transport cost savings, while also improving the experience for end-users.
Edge computing. It’s certainly a water cooler topic for those in the high performance computing (HPC) industry. But could edge computing be the next big thing for the data center industry, as well? A recent white paper from EdgeConnex explores how many data center providers, colocation companies — and colo customers — are turning toward the possibility of edge data centers to solve some of today’s concerns over high internet traffic and bandwidth overload.
This white paper examines the latest trends in the broadband and video space, examines their implications for cable operators and other CSPs and explores what providers can do to overcome the challenges presented by the growing traffic bottlenecks. Download the new white paper from EdgeConneX that focuses on the use of localized Edge Data Centers®, rather than the standard large, centralized data centers in far-off locations, to deliver bandwidth-intensive content and latency-sensitive applications actions closer to end users.
A common question these days from potential colocation customers is, “What is your strategy for providing solutions for edge computing?” Drew Leonard, VP of Strategy, and Mike Michalik, CTO for Evoque Data Centers Solutions, explore the steps that traditional data center providers must take to develop a strategy for providing edge solutions to customers.
Edge computing specialist EdgeMicro has completed a $3 million round of funding, which will move it beyond the proof-of-concept stage to begin deploying data center modules in production.
Edge computing specialist Vapor IO has organized the Kinetic Edge Alliance, a group of hardware, software and networking companies that will collaborate on edge solutions.
Edge computing pioneer EdgeConneX has expanded into hyperscale projects, but says it intends to be a key player as next-generation technologies drive growth in edge deployments.
Compass EdgePoint is targeting network performance as a growth opportunity in its edge computing business, seeking to support data flows from industrial IoT applications.
