The Drivers and Benefits of Edge Computing

Internet use is trending towards bandwidth-intensive content and an increasing number of attached "things". At the same time, mobile telecom networks and data networks are converging into a cloud computing architecture. To support needs today and tomorrow, computing power and storage is being inserted out on the network edge in order to lower data transport time and increase availability. Edge computing brings bandwidth-intensive content and latency-sensitive applications closer to the user or data source. This white paper explains the drivers of edge computing and explores the various types of edge computing available.

The Drivers and Benefits of Edge Computing

Cloud computing has revolutionised how people store and use their data. However, there are some areas where Cloud is limited. Latency, bandwidth, security, and a lack of offline access can be problematic.

To solve this problem, users need robust, secure and intelligent on-premise infrastructure for edge computing. When data is physically located closer to the users who connect to it, information can be shared quickly, securely, and without latency. In financial services, gaming, healthcare and retail, low levels of latency are vital for a great customer digital experience.

The Different Types of Air Distribution for IT Environments

There are nine basic approaches to distribute air in data centers and network rooms. These approaches vary in performance, cost, and ease of implementation. These approaches are described along with their various advantages.

The proper application of these air distribution types is essential knowledge for Information Systems personnel as well as Facilities Managers.

Classification of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Tools

Data centers today lack a formal system for classifying infrastructure management tools. As a result, confusion exists regarding which management systems are necessary and which are optional for secure and efficient data center operation. This paper divides the realm of data center management tools into four distinct subsets and compares the primary and secondary functions of key subsystems within these subsets. With a classification system in place, data center professionals can begin to determine which physical infrastructure management tools they need – and don’t need – to operate their data centers.

Cooling Strategies for IT Wiring Closets and Small Rooms

Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. Historically, no clear standard exists for specifying sufficient cooling to achieve predictable behavior within wiring closets. An appropriate specification for cooling IT wiring closets should assure compatibility with anticipated loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, maximize electrical efficiency, and be flexible enough to work in various shapes and types of closets.

This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of cooling for wiring closets.
