Strategies for reducing operational expenditure whilst maximizing operational resiliency and efficiency
Building a data center management reference architecture: From the Edge, through the Core, to the Cloud
An October 2017 report from Gartner estimated that only about 10% of enterprise-generated data came from outside of traditional cloud computing centers, but that by 2025 that figure will soar to 75% or more. Organizations of all sizes, in all business sectors, are part of this IT transformation, shifting compute from the traditional data center out to the edge. But for these highly distributed, unstaffed, ‘lights out’ spaces this shift comes with unique challenges and demand-enhanced visibility and monitoring capabilities that must be accounted for.
In this session, Ross and Jonathan will define the Edge as an extension of the existing data center architecture, discuss the unique characteristics of Edge spaces that must be accounted for in a cohesive reference architecture, and look at some real-world examples of large organizations that successfully transitioned their traditional data center operations to embrace Edge computing.
