Bimodal IT, SDN & IoT: 5 paramount trends hitting data centres in 2016
Emerson said that these edge facilities, or neighbourhood data centres, will support the larger data centres providing low-latency content and applications to users or data processing and logic for IoT networks.
Reams of data will pour into data centres as IoT becomes more widely adopted, but data will not be the only changing factor impacting the industry.
To answer this, data centres will need to find a common language in which devices can interact.
According to Emerson, cloud could get more complex as data centre servers are still running below their optimum capacity.
The company said the solution will enable new levels of visibility, control and automation by creating interconnectivity across data centre systems.
