What is the edge?
Not so long ago, the “edge” consisted of people creating, processing and consuming information from terminals located at a desk in an office or home. Now there are billions of devices creating data in our world today (often referred to as an Internet of Things or IoT). Data is created by people, sensors, industrial machines, smart refrigerators, mobile phones, computers, wearable sensors, cameras – literally millions of forms of data creation devices known as the “new edge” of enterprise. Connecting billions of these devices, analyzing, and processing data makes centralization of all that information impractical, inefficient, and costly. To add to the complexity of information needs, not everywhere in the world and every circumstance makes accessibility to centralized information even possible. The “edge” is no longer in an office with broadband connectivity or someplace with great connections to an internet service provider. This new edge is located in the furthest most reaches of our planet and the information needs are still there. Add a natural disaster, war, exploration, maritime transport, the developing world, and the information needs remain the same – then what?
The Acuity® Micro Data Center from Tyto Athene enables your mission critical operations at the furthest reaches of your enterprise.
