Edge Computing

Ready for the digital transformation with edge computing

Data is a vital raw material, both now and in the future, with analyses and downstream processing increasing its value further still. The data produced must be processed quickly and continuously to add value, which means avoiding time-consuming transfers to data centres far away. In the case of time-critical applications in particular, latency can become a problem when transferring data over long distances.

This is where edge computing comes in. Made-to-measure data centres analyse data directly at the edge of the network, that is to say at the point where it is generated. This is a key factor for companies gearing up for the digital transformation of their business.
