It’s no secret that the data center industry wastes a lot of power in the way of standby power. For many years IT has worked to increase resiliency throughout the application stack and payload to both workaround outages and provide additional functionality and orchestration. Edge data centers are expected to carry the lion’s share of compute by 2025 with some estimates stating that up to 75 per cent of all data will be processed in edge environments. This opens up a whole new world for microgrids, resilient distributed compute and functionality increasing the efficiency of the data world. This session will discuss some of the efficiency gains to be had at the edge.
