This increasing sophistication of the edge is among the data center trends to watch in 2019 as identified by Vertiv experts from around the globe.
“Today’s edge plays a critical role in data center and network operation and in the delivery of important consumer services,” said Rob Johnson, chief executive officer, Vertiv. “This is a dramatic and fundamental change to the way we think about computing and data management.
