At their core (no pun intended), edge data centers are a natural response to both the increased demand of things like Internet-based content and the trend of moving more networks directly into the cloud. What started as a simple conceptual response to bandwidth-intensive ideas like the Internet of Things (IoT) has quickly turned into something few could have predicted. Though edge data centers began life in a form that many described as "glorified content delivery networks", they definitely didn't stay that way for very long.
The new, edge-driven world of data centers that we're now living in actually has a number of important implications that you need to be aware of moving forward.

As modern society advances the future of data centers will be experiencing a major shift. With such advances taking place in the way data centers are being designed, built, and operated will likely result in a new type of facility in the 2020s. The driving force for this global shift is the combination of economic prowess and technological innovation.
To learn more about the dynamics of the existing data center industry, the forces of change and disruption, and predictions about new data center types read the full white paper “Datacenters of the Future: a Shifting Landscape from the Core to the Edge”.

As more and more devices are connected to the Internet (thanks largely due to the increased popularity of the Internet of Things), new data centers are being rapidly built to support this additional workload. At the same time, managing energy consumption efficiently is still a major challenge for data center operators, in order to maintain reliable application delivery and uptime.
Here are some of this year’s major trends in the data center industry, currently impacting owners and operators.

A facility's data centers can represent a massive portion of its energy consumption. As energy costs continue to climb and resources become more strained, cooling costs will grow. Free cooling options allow you to get ahead of rising costs and make your data center more efficient. Businesses that aim for long-term sustainability can look here first when finding ways to cut down on power usage. This both lowers costs every month and helps a company do what it can for long-term environmental sustainability.
