DCD>Debate: Living on the Edge - Is this the key to revolutionizing the data center landscape?

The demand for low-latency and high-speed data is obvious. What may not yet be obvious is the impact hyperscalers are having on the evolution of the Edge. However, as infrastructure demands meet the demands for an accelerated Edge, the shift towards data centers as a service sparks new thinking: largely about the trajectory of AI's ascent within the Edge. Can New York's carrier hotels for example, driven by diverse renters, be examples of how new locations can meet escalating demands in urban areas? Can Tower companies and mobile operators capitalize on bringing computing power within the last mile in other parts of the US? Or do we need to throw out traditional thinking and begin creating micro-data centers that can remain cost-effective in urban and rural areas?

Held under Chatham House Rule, DCD>Debates are open discussions led by a panel of experts, on the biggest issues to face the industry.
