Title: Benefits of Localized Data Centers on the Edge
With the explosion of connected devices and data applications, bandwidth, latency and processing speed are becoming big concerns. Legacy networks may become bogged down and access to information or computing resources limited.
Recently, a solution has emerged that can help improve your data speed with micro data center solutions for edge computing. These micro data center solutions can simplify the lives of many data center owners and operators because they are self-contained, secure computing environments . Their flexibility opens up a wave of new applications.
This session focuses on what a localized data center is, the different types available and how localized data centers are great solutions to add capacity quickly, reduce latency, and enable secure ongoing management through edge computing. Learn about the new generation of micro data centers that can enable the future of the data center industry.

Title: Panel- It’s not in a data center! Deploying and Managing Compute at the Edge of the Network
Not all enterprise IT is in a data center. Many business functions must be supported locally, by compute close to the users. This panel will cover the challenges and best practices of deploying and managing "edge computing".
