When planning an Edge Data Center (EDC) deployment, the need to address availability of planned workloads to ensure resiliency is a top priority. The key characteristics of an EDC can be significantly different than those that top the list for larger enterprise or multi-tenant data centers. To help balance the costs and operational aspects of any EDC strategy, this paper outlines a number of critical questions that should be addressed to ensure resiliency at the edge.
To fully digitize the last mile of business, you need to distribute compute power where it’s needed most — right next to IoT devices that collect data from the real world. Edge computing provides a vital layer of compute and storage physically close to IoT endpoints, so that control devices can respond with low latency – and edge analytics processing can reduce the amount of data that needs to be transferred to the core.

The #Cloud is moving toward the #Edge in an effort to be closer to the cloud customers and the Edge is accelerating access to the Cloud from anywhere by offering lower transport costs, more choices, faster connectivity, better reliability, and accelerated performance.
New applications, the enormous demands placed on the internet in the age of COVID 19, and moving from the enterprise space to the hyper-local edge installation all demand a rethinking of what the data center should look like. While the core components remain the same, this webinar will address how we must rethink how we specify and install enclosures, power, climate control and related accessories.
Edge computing sits at the intersection of artificial intelligence, the internet of things and big data and provides the flexibility of a hybrid model that can take advantage of both data center infrastructure and the cloud. By 2025, experts expect there will be 41.6 billion IoT devices, each equipped with sensors gathering information each second. It’s simply not reasonable for all that data to be streamed back to a central data center or traditional on-premises computing environment. By bringing compute power to the edge and integrating increasingly mature AI — a combination referred to as the “intelligent edge” — agencies can actually use this rapid expansion of data to help their missions.
Corning’s EDGE™ solutions were the industry’s first preterminated optical cabling systems specifically designed for the data center environment.
Experts agree: without a modern, real-time-capable infrastructure, neither the Internet of Things (IoT), nor autonomous driving or Smart Cities can be realized. The fact is that data volumes around the globe are exploding. Real-time data processing is only possible with 5G mobile communications and Edge Computing. Modern & high-performance fiber optics cabling is the prerequisite.
The six installment in Bob Hult’s Technology Trends series examines the rise of data centers and the shift to cloud and edge computing.
Edge computing reduces the latency between a device and service where latency is the roundtrip time between two systems over a network. While reducing latency is one of the its main benefits, edge computing has other benefits that will be exposed as 5G use cases are discussed.
