Introduction: For today's enterprise market, data has become the most precious resource, especially with the fact that many companies are now beginning to digitally transform, making the entire society and economy a dependency on data. We all know that the proportion of Internet infrastructure construction often follows the scale of data development.
For today's enterprise market, data has become the most precious resource, especially with the fact that many companies are now beginning to digitally transform, making the entire society and economy dependent on data. Sex, we all know that the proportion of Internet infrastructure construction often follows the scale of data development.
In recent years, due to the birth and development of edge computing technology, edge computing technology can extend data processing and storage closer to the edge of the network. These places are actually devices with growing network demand and In the field of sensors.
We all know that the goal of edge computing is to be as close as possible to the end user, so that the company can handle a series of data and services very conveniently. For edge computing, it is actually a kind of permission. The calculation and content delivery process completes the structure of the system within 10 milliseconds or less of the user. The edge computing model can largely drive consumers' increasing trend and demand on the mobile device side, especially in recent years. Consumption in the fields of video and VR is growing rapidly, and in fact, there are marginal calculations.
Users' Fundamental Needs for Edge Computing
According to an authoritative market research report from the United States, edge computing solutions are one of the most important areas of current data center end users, Nearly half of the respondents said they have deployed some form of edge computing, or will deploy edge computing in the coming year, and another 17% said they will plan their business in the next three years. Edge calculations will be used.
From the above data and user feedback, we can see that the degree of attention and favor of edge computing for enterprise users is still relatively high. In addition, the average power density of edge computing deployment has reached 6.7kW of racks, that is, the rapid development of edge computing technology is changing the current data center builderAnd the deployment scenario, and for the layout of traditional data centers, edge computing will also cut in from its approach and perspective, bringing traditional data centers with different construction dimensions.
Currently, with the surge in user data, global 4G systems have been limited, and traffic from wireless and mobile devices accounted for more than 63% of total IP traffic, from 2016 to the present. Global mobile devices and IoT devices have increased by more than 429 million units. This series of numbers is actually the best embodiment of users' needs for the wide application of edge computing.
Edge Computing and Connectivity Devices
For edge computing, a large part of the transformation may be attributed to the fragmentation of users and IT platforms, as well as the rise of the Internet of Things market in recent years, data The center can provide very good support for IoT devices and the user community accessing this data.
It is worth mentioning that current edge computing is also applied to solve the delay problem of many highly distributed environments. We all know that latency is often the time required to transmit packets over the network, delay for individual users. Fortunately, it is crucial for many enterprise users, especially for many traditional enterprise users in key industry sectors. Delays may result in loss of business and loss of competitive advantage. Amazon has said that for itself, a 100 millisecond network delay will reduce their sales revenue by 1%, which is quite amazing.
Of course, for some SMEs, perhaps the volume of business is not comparable to that of Amazon. These companies are relatively less sensitive to delays, but it does not mean that delays are not important to these companies. The birth and application of edge computing can very well help this type of enterprise to eliminate obstacles in the network and solve delays and other issues.
Edge computing flexibility and operational management
Edge computing is now in the process of rapid development, which also brings a lot of room for development in regional data centers, in many ways, Edge computing is entering a growth phase similar to the “cloud computing chaos” of 2012-2014, and there is a constant debate about how to define the concept of edge computing. I believe that edge computing will be the same as cloud computing and will be available in many industry sectors.Success, regardless of its size. The concept of edge computing is to meet the needs of the user's location. Among them, flexibility is key, and edge computing offers tremendous potential advantages in deploying edge solutions and managing data.
