The rise of AI has brought more hardware to accelerate specific tasks, Our DCF Executive Roundtable discuss whether powerful new AI hardware will bring changes in data center design and operations.
EdgeConnex, as its name implies, specializes in connecting second-tier markets through edge computing. Their sophisticated “lights out” facilities are part of content delivery networks (CDNs) that reduce buffering time in a world of streaming content. EdgeConnex’s ability to rapidly deploy new data centers has attracted investment from Comcast.

In today’s edition of the DCF Executive Roundtable, our panel discusses the shift of enterprise IT workloads into third-party cloud platforms and colo facilities.
What types of edge computing are most relevant in 2019? In our DCF Executive Roundtable, executives from RagingWire Data Centers, Cyxtera Technologies, EdgeConneX, Iron Mountain, Intel and Chatsworth Products debate the topic.
Our Data Center Frontier Executive Roundtable looks at the hyperscale data center market with insights from Randy Rowland of Cyxtera, James Leach of RagingWire, Rick Crutchley of Iron Mountain, David Richards of Chatsworth, Phillip Marangella from EdgeConneX and Intel Software’s Jeff Klaus.
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.
Download the new report from EdgeConneX to explore the public cloud’s performance, security and cost issues and examine what can be done to resolve them. The white paper also explains the cost, performance, security and other benefits of leveraging edge cloud on-ramps access to access the hyper scale public cloud providers, and examines how CSPs can use this local infrastructure to promote their own connectivity infrastructure.
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.
The most popular stories on Data Center Frontier in March featured Facebook’s new wholesale fiber business, cooling, edge computing, and data center staffing.
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.
