As edge computing architectures have evolved, businesses have been able to take advantage of new applications that require low latency. But there’s also an opportunity for businesses to create new ecosystems that will generate new revenue. This requires looking at the edge in a whole new way. When you look at the edge as a business hub, then you can see how small data centers can be transformed into full-fledged service providers and how the edge can fuel digital transformation.
In this special report, we’ll look at how edge computing can turn data centers into transactional market places. The report explains the three-tiered architecture for creating a global end-to-end solution. It also examines some of the factors that will drive the growth of edge platforms into full-blown data centers. The author asserts that interconnection is key for enterprises looking to build out edge data centers. He also discusses the benefits of colocation including interconnection capacity, room to expand, bandwidth, and security.
The report, which is brought to you in conjunction with Iron Mountain, features a Q & A section. Rich Miller, editor of Data Center Frontier, and three Iron Mountain executives discuss trends, technology, and the impact of COVID-19 on edge computing.
