The explosion of data at the network edge continues unabated and is forcing companies to implement strategies to keep up, including micro data centers that are quick to deploy, highly resilient, and remotely manageable. One strategy that we expect will prove effective: partnering to get the job done. Numbers tell the story. By 2025, we will be dealing with more than 75 billion connected devices, according to IHS. They will be concentrated at the edge, where Gartner research predicts 75 percent of data will be processed, managed, and consumed by 2025, up from just 10 percent in 2018.
More lately, many distributed companies are required to provide edge computing deployments. Common examples include:
- Fortune 500 firms with the Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives that involve devices and sensors generating vast amounts of data.
- State and local government and educational institutions implementing smart city technology, wired classrooms, and remote learning initiatives.
- Cellular service providers rolling out 5G networks that are many times faster than previous generations.
- Retailers with smart technology in stores such as kiosks and smart mirrors.
New technology comes the need for new infrastructure
All IT equipment requires appropriate supporting infrastructure, including proper power and cooling. This often includes a UPS to keep equipment running in case of power disruptions, and possibly additional cooling. Racks and enclosures are also needed to keep equipment safe from environmental and security risks. Even cooling is particularly important to ensure cool air flow is distributed evenly through the servers.
SAKAE Casting offers a thermal cooling solution designed with Edge in mind. We’ve conducted thorough tests and simulations to ensure our product provides industry-leading cooling capability with limited downtime. The SAKAE Cool Door offers targeted cooling for uneven density server configurations, making it an incredibly adaptable cooling device. It is compact, easy to retrofit, and provides 100% heat removal.
Outdoor Edge and Micro data centers are susceptible to unstable changes due to weather, where our product helps keep thermals under control in unstable environments.
As the future of Edge looks bright, the SAKAE Cool Door is the perfect companion for your Edge data center configuration. Our team is devoted to working with you one-on-one to ensure our solution is the right fit for your operation. To learn more about Edge, visit our other blog posts.
