Three ways to adapt DC infrastructure for the edge

 

Now more than ever, people are reliant on the stability of your data center infrastructure, requiring a partner to help you navigate changing market demands. As new services, applications and user demands emerge, your cloud and network infrastructures must adapt with them. To provide access to critical applications, services and data, your data centers need to deliver low-latency, high-speed connections while still processing and managing massive amounts of data. Factory control, remote robotic surgery and augmented reality / virtual reality (AR/VR) are a few examples of applications that require massive data processing. Edge computing can help you meet massive demands, while managing the total cost of ownership of your data center infrastructure.

 

Custom infrastructure is within reach 

 

Edge computing makes it possible to manage massive amounts of data while reducing lag time. Which is good news, because an IDC DataAge 2025 study projects that by 2025 the digital universe will reach 175 zettabytes of data. While this may sound like a big undertaking, investing in modern infrastructure paves the way for the future of technology.  

 

The ability to deploy edge capacity adds value for your users, including businesses and consumers. We understand that you’re already balancing the time and financial investment of running a data center. That’s why we help lower your total cost of ownership with customized hardware and cost-effective supply chain solutions. From customized infrastructure to rack integration, our capabilities address all edges of the cloud and telco networks.  

 

Stay cool, calm and connected

   
We're sure you've considered the obstacle of managing thermals at the edge – traditional air-cooling isn’t always feasible for smaller, scattered edge data centers. Liquid cooling is a front-runner for keeping the high-powered data center cool and running without interruption. Many edge data centers will be designed to use liquid cooling, which is especially helpful when dealing with the diverse environmental conditions at the edge.  

 

We help design and build cooling solutions for the modern edge data center. You’ll be able to manage the security, speed and scale that are crucial to support changing applications and services. Our extensive experience customizing data center infrastructure from start to finish makes it possible for us to assess needs upfront. That way, your deployment timeline stays on track and as you expect it. Our global supply chain expertise ensures the stability of your data center infrastructure as well as a nimble responsiveness to changing market demands.    

 

It’s time to scale up

   
Apprehension is understandable when considering the challenges associated with power, physical security and minimal latency when data centers are scattered around the world. And adding more compute and storage intensive workloads to the formula raises the stakes. As a data center leader, we know you are the one keeping the ball rolling. The quality of your data center infrastructure will make or break the service you provide for your customers. That’s why we are here to help. 

 

We have the resources to design and build custom hardware optimized to meet your needs. When we build infrastructure such as enterprise and cloud racks and enclosures, rack-level compute and storage systems and customized off-the-shelf solutions, we do so with the benefit of deep engineering expertise and a global manufacturing presence. Our engineering facilities are located around the globe and perform with precision and accuracy. Combined with our strong global supply chain, we offer a continuous supply of data center infrastructure no matter what global challenges we may face.

 

We partner with cloud and telecommunications providers to customize data center infrastructure, providing the full spectrum of technology and services, to meet your massive data requirements.
