The nature of today’s digital economy and the surge in data from connected devices has fueled the growth of edge data centres, which ensure IT services remain reliable, resilient and available. Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today released new research into data centre availability and why edge computing sites are having a disproportionate affect on the resilience and reliability of digital IT services.
The research detailed in Schneider Electric’s White Paper Why Cloud Computing is Requiring us to Rethink Resiliency at the Edge suggests a new methodology which measures data centre availability.
The approach is based on considering the criticality of all edge sites on which a business depends for its IT services and concludes that a greater concentration on physical infrastructure in smaller data centres is necessary to improve overall resilience.
