Intel has got a prediction for data centers. It says average internet user will reach to 1.5GB of traffic a day by 2020. By the same time daily video traffic to hit 1PB, which is of course huge.
The internet-of-things devices, mobile devices and autonomous vehicles will be the primary reasons for such a huge amount of data generated.
The upcoming 5G networks will carry superfast data to dispatch more gathered information than what is served today. This will result with further stressing up the data centers.
Computing on the edge was a big topic lately at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event for faster responses for mobile services without stressing the servers more in the network.
Computing on the edge involves light processing on intermediary servers or else on the edge of the networks. With the help of instant analytics the junk information is discarded and the servers only receive useful information.
Several companies showcased their products related to the edge computing. Hewlett Packard Enterprise revealed its latest generation of IoT servers which is dubbed as Edgeline. It is similar to the Proliant servers of the company but in a slimmer version.
Edgeline can handle mobile computing tasks and intense data tasks can be routed back to the centralized data center network.
