Today’s edge is more mission critical, powerful and secure than traditional remote computing deployments, such as the old IT closet, and designed to deliver on-site computing and network connectivity for everything from in-store retail to banking to K-12 and higher education and healthcare facilities. Angie McMillin, Vice President and General Manager of IT Systems at Vertiv, explores the shifting sands within the world of edge computing.
For the edge computing market, 2019 was a year of laying the groundwork for future growth. Here are insights from Data Center Frontier’s edge computing coverage in 2019, highlighting emerging trends and companies in edge computing.
Here’s an existential question for you, when does a new technology legitimately become a “thing”? In this edition of Voice of the Industry, the team at Compass Data Centers shares how the company predicts in 2019 ,Edge Computing will begin to see the level of investment required to push it past the status of “new big thing.”
For data centers, the evolution and arrival of 5G is crucial to business success – as well as data throughput, edge computing, ultra-low latency, and efficiency. A new report from Vertiv explores 5G use cases that can help your business optimize their applications and better approach machine learning and AI.
The continuous demand for speed and bandwidth, combined with the need to lower latency, is driving the move to the edge. However, while the above definition provides a perfectly serviceable framework to jumpstart discussion, EdgeConneX’ Phillip Marangella advocates perhaps a more focused definition that is at once far broader and meaningful.
Data center leaders are investing in edge computing and edge solutions and actively looking at new ways to deploy edge capacity to support evolving business and user requirements.
