Recent Advances in Data Center, Edge Computing Technologies

In the last few years, many advances have been made in the field of dense computing in response to heavy cloud and compute demand. Cooling these requires a diverse set of approaches, as there is no one solution fits all approach. This talk will highlight many of these sometimes diverse and seemingly different technology approaches. Some of the topics we hope to touch upon will be:

  • High density cooling solutions market: What’s available today and where are we headed
  • Air vs. water – when is air not enough and why?
  • Data center facilities management and how to bridge the gap to get things done right
  • The importance of cooling flexibility in today’s data centers.

For the edge computing, some of the topics that may be covered are:

  • Latency considerations
  • Amount of processing at the edge vs in the cloud
  • Lack of standards for the edge
