The world is rapidly changing and the always-on, always-available expectation continues to evolve. Leveraging massive amounts of data generated by the Internet of Things into an automated lifestyle is proving to be a challenge. For today’s connected world, reliable data processing and content delivery is essential.

Edge computing that minimizes the physical gap between data and the end user is a vital component of new cloud architecture. However, edge data centers are not configured for the same level of availability as larger hyperscale data centers.

This session will address how data centers can support new demands such as smart-cities and remote business branch offices. Learn how business-critical edge sites should be designed to achieve high availability and why the current paradigm of data center availability is inadequate.
