The Edge: A term that can conjure images of the U2 guitarist or bring to mind the phrase "A Flat Earth." These days, however, the edge is a place where much of the "Work of IoT" is heading; in coming years, the amount of work being done there will boggle the mind. Keeping edge sites up and running will require more power as well as a cool and stable environment, as these data centers will not be a conventional facility but will be in a corner, in a closet or just about any other environment you could think of. This session will bring you up to speed on operational trends for edge environments, and how they apply to the greater data center marketplace.
1. Understand the terminology associated with "The Edge" and how it can differ based upon who is describing it and how they are utilizing it
2. Analyze the unique topographies associated with a non-traditional data center
3. Review the limitations of edge: Are there any? If you can dream it, you may very well see it
4. Discuss the adage of "Location, location, location" in edge applications (yes, it is still true!)
