Code, a leading provider of real-time
physical asset management and environmental monitoring solutions
announced today the release of a new white paper discussing the
advantages and risks of edge data center deployments. The white paper, Standing
at the Edge? Look Before You Leap, defines the edge – what it
is, where it is, and its benefits, and reveals the obstacles and hazards
IT professionals need to address to ensure their edge deployments
deliver the rewards their businesses demand.
The paper explores critical information for those developing an edge
data center deployment strategy. According to Gartner, within the next
four years 75% of data generated by enterprises will be processed at the
edge (up from just 10% today). Clearly, the edge is the next frontier
and promises vast improvements in network speed, scalability, security
and resiliency over traditional network architectures.
Yet, most IT professionals are still grasping for a consistent
definition of what the edge really is. Without that definition it’s
impossible for IT professionals to understand the unique management and
monitoring challenges the edge presents.
“Despite the value and benefit edge deployments promise to deliver,
there is no agreed on or standardized definitions or architectures for
the edge yet,” said David Williams, Executive Vice President of Products
and Marketing at RF Code. “That leaves data center owners and operators
to define the edge for themselves. We wrote this white paper to define
the edge and its benefits and risks and explain the critical operational
importance of visibility into assets deployed at the edge.”
