|Global Impact of Edge and 5G Technology on Data Centers, Forecast to 2022|
|Edge Data Center is Forecast to be a $3.62 Billion Market by 2022, Driven by Latency-focused Next-gen Applications|
As we enter the next era of digitization, we are amidst a silent revolution that will change the location from where we process data as well as the speed in which we do that—the reasons being Edge Computing and 5G. The term edge refers to the edge of a network, i.e., close to the data/information source and edge computing means processing data close to the source. Edge computing is giving rise to a new wave of data centers that are smaller in terms of footprint and located close to the source. The aim of this research is to neatly lay out the impact of edge as well as 5G on data centers by gathering expert opinion from industry participant’s and in-house Frost & Sullivan knowledge.
