Data Center 2025: How to prepare for Massive Growth at the Edge
October 16, 2019
Listen to the on demand version

Data proliferation and application sprawl means edge of network computing locations will need to triple – or more – by 2025.

One in five participants in Vertiv’s Data Center 2025 survey said they expect a 400% or more increase in the number of edge sites they will be supporting in the next five years.

How do you plan to support and sustain that massive and uncertain future growth?

Martin Olsen, Vice President, Global Edge and Integrated Solutions, will talk about what he sees coming and how to prepare now: from efficiently deploying compute capacity in new far-flung locations, to keeping infrastructure costs in check with a shrinking IT workforce, to mitigating 5G’s voracious energy appetite. He’ll also talk about how to handle the management of disparate and far-flung facilities in the same timeframe that the IT workforce is contracting by as much as a third.
