Livin’ On the Edge: How the explosion in data and need for speed is shaping the future of network infrastructure

On Demand until May 30, 2019

Duration:60 minutes


In a world where a page response delay of 500 milliseconds causes a 20 percent drop in website traffic, or a 5 millisecond delay in electronic trading can result in a broker losing $4 million per millisecond, it’s imperative for businesses to look for increasingly faster ways to deliver data at the edge.

Join Vertiv’s Martin Olsen for an overview of new research that has analyzed multiple edge use cases and defined four edge archetypes. You'll also learn how to:

  • Identify the difference in digital eco-system by archetype
  • Use that knowledge to build faster, more scalable and intelligent edge environments
