Computing at the edge is an ongoing growth area and a challenge. When even a little bit of latency is unacceptable, more processing needs to take place right on the device itself instead of waiting for a data round trip to the cloud. As the Internet of Things (IoT) explodes in growth, better chips are needed and Intel announced a new chip called the Intel Xeon D-2100 processor, specifically for those that want to move computing to the edge.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a major driving force for emerging technologies to service computing at the edge and related computing needs. Modular data centers (MDC) located closer to end-users are also in need to solve latency issues for mission critical operations.
MDCs are meeting current and future data capacity needs while lowering total cost of ownership (TOC) for data center operators. Our Binary Bunker modular data center offered by Edge Mission Critical Systems (Edge MCS brochure) is one MDC product that is pre-engineered for edge computing. In addition, it allows you to work with fewer vendors and simplify procurement.
The Tech Crunch post, Intels latest chip is designed for computing at the edge, discusses the new Intel Xeon D-2100 processor – good read.
