In pursuit enabling new business models and best leveraging IT resources, customers are constantly evolving their architectures to better meet business needs. The binary choice of on-prem computing or shipping data and workloads to hyperscale cloud data centers is now becoming a limiter. As a result, one area of intense focus of such innovation is on “edge computing”.
Edge computing is the placement of data center or network-class compute and storage resources away from centralized hubs and closer to the endpoint devices in order to improve service capabilities, optimize total cost of ownership (TCO), comply with data locality requirements, and reduce application latency.
This webinar will provide an overview of the market dynamics driving the growing interest in edge computing models and concepts. It will cover some of the critical use models and attributes likely to drive the transition and it will highlight some of the core technologies and providers that will help open and enable the deployment of IT resources dynamically when and where they are needed—from core to edge to endpoint.
