As a continuation of last year's panel "Don't Fall Off The Edge," this session is intended to revisit the changing definition of the Edge market. One year on, how has this market developed and where do we see it in another year from now? How will the larger AI trend affect smaller Edge facilities? More importantly, is there even an Edge market to discuss? If so, what are the opportunities and challenges inherent in going to a smaller form factor when much of the data center industry seems to be moving to progressively larger, multi-megawatt facilities? Attendees will be able to gather key takeaways regarding the latest and upcoming trends impacting the Edge.
- Our definition of what constitutes the Edge - Where/how are Edge facilities being deployed - What are the workloads going into these Edge facilities - What are operational challenges specific to Edge facilities
