Data center system popularity is on the rise worldwide, and for good reason. According to Statista, IT spending on data center systems globally is expected to reach $222 billion by the end of this year alone, a staggering number that shows just how invested the economy is in them. In addition, edge data centers have been growing in popularity, too, and 2024 may be just the right time for you to consider investing in this lucrative industry. Here are some of the top reasons why you ought to consider getting involved with edge data centers in the new year (if you have not already).
Reach a Wider Audience
There are approximately 3 million data centers located in the United States, which comes out to about one data center for every 100 people. However, not all users live near these data centers. This can create a latency problem. But what exactly is latency? Latency is the “lag” you experience when you ask a server to act, such as clicking on the Home page button of a website. The delayed time between the action you perform (clicking on the button) and the result (the appearance of the Home page) is latency. The further away a user is from their server, the higher the latency, which can be frustrating to experience. Edge computing allows you to create a lower latency for users, which can make both them and your clients happier.
Stay Ahead of Your Competition
Edge data computing is still a budding industry, meaning this is the perfect time to get started. To get a leg up on the competition, investing in edge computing can be just what you are looking for to start your 2024 off on the right foot. What is more, with the right equipment and DCIM software, you can increase your efficiency, reduce downtime, and boost your revenue.
