Data Center 2025: Closer to the Edge

New research and insights on the future of the data center.

More than half of participants who have edge sites today or expect to have them in 2025 expect the number of edge sites they support to grow by at least 100%, with 20% expecting a 400% or more increase.

That's just one of the findings in the new report, Data Center 2025: Closer to the Edge.

Revisiting questions posed in the original Data Center 2025 research in 2014, the new report updates projections for the future while spotlighting the impact of fundamental changes that have occurred since the first report was published, including the emergence of edge computing and increasing segmentation within the industry.

Covering topics that range from the future role of cloud computing to the role of renewable energy, this new report presents a vision for how the industry is evolving today—and what it might look like five years from now.
