Edge Data Centers: The Impact

Posted on July 11, 2017 by Rick Gonedes

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.
