An energy challenge is on its way and it’s coming from the edge. Schneider Electric predicts that by 2040, 80 percent of total data center energy consumption will come from edge data centers. That is the equivalent of 275 million households. We know that when it comes to availability, the edge of the network has become mission critical and it must be made more resilient. However, higher resiliency traditionally means lower efficiency creating a paradox – how do we make the edge more resilient and sustainable?
This presentation will discuss the challenge posed by edge data center energy consumption, the new thinking required to address the availability and sustainability paradox, and the importance of creating an open ecosystem.
