The Evolving Edge Data Center Landscape
The next decade will give rise to a variety of connected technologies that will continue to transform and automate our everyday lives. This will include everything from fifth generation (5G) mobile networks to autonomous self-driving cars, to smart cities and smart factories driven by Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices. But to fully realize the potential of these technologies, we still need to overcome some key technical limitations – primarily latency.
Latency is a delay in transmission that is caused when data needs to travel over greater distances through several network switches and routers. While the delays may only be a few milliseconds, they can add up to the point of causing unacceptable performance and an inability to support emerging technologies. The solution to reducing latency lies in edge data centers that brings IT resources closer to the users and devices they serve, providing improved application performance and reliability through localized computing, data storage, and data analytics
Challenges for Edge Data Centers
While edge data centers differ in that they will handle processing of applications, data analytics and data storage within the general vicinity of end users and devices that use those applications and data, they include the same power, cooling, connectivity, and security found in centralized data centers, but on a smaller scale. Siemon offers a wide range of essential infrastructure solutions that emerging edge data centers will rely on.
