By bringing processing capabilities closer to the data-intensive operations and devices, latency is reduced and analysis can be made in real time. The strategic importance for many companies is apparent, but downsizing the footprint of the IT enclosures while supersizing the internal components creates unique challenges for security and uptime. And, as in any data center application, there are always absolutes and variables to weigh. This webinar explores these variables in the world of edge computing with an emphasis on cooling. Herb Villa will provide a checklist of cooling requirements specific to "the edge”; will discuss variables in edge cooling; will explore cooling choices and how to make them; and will help you identify who takes ownership of your edge installation.
