January Top IT Trends
Cloud to the Edge
Although cloud computing continues to grow, the reality is that information processing and content collection delivery is increasingly needed to be placed closer to the source creating and processing this data. Edge computing aims to resolve connectivity and latency issues, increasing the bandwidth to allow connected devices (mobile phones, laptops, tablets, smartwatches, etc.) to efficiently and effectively provide time-sensitive information.

Micro or Mini Data Centers
Edge computing is changing the way you can process and store critical and time-sensitive information closer to the source. However, being able to deploy this solution requires a more mobile approach, without the necessary parts and components that you typically build for a traditional data center, hyperscale data center or even a dedicated server/IT room. Providing a flexible, mobile and secure physical layer is still required, to mimic what you would typically get from a traditional IT infrastructure.
Internet of Things will continue to evolve, as many cities are looking to become more “smart” to support the increase of connected devices by consumers and organizations. Many new infrastructures are starting to appear to support IoT, such as converged, hyper-converged and edge computing, to name a few. Hospitals, Schools, and Government facilities will highly depend on IoT devices to produce, deliver and consume time-sensitive information.
