With edge computing, IT infrastructure is moved into specialized facilities known as edge data centres that are located either on-premise or at locations near to end-users. An edge data center can be defined as a data center housing edge computing equipment. It is designed to complement existing public cloud or colocation deployments, edge data centers offer advantages that neither possess. The physical nature of internet infrastructure is changing as now people watch more and more of their video online versus cable TV or satellite services, and as businesses consume more and more cloud services versus buying hardware boxes and software licenses. With the growing push toward data sovereignty and regulations designed to safeguard data privacy around the globe, companies are finding the ability to keep data close at hand enormously useful and edge data centers are positioned to meet these requirements by virtue of their physical proximity, while still fulfilling their organization’s IT requirements. Thus, changing economy and way of life increases the adoption of wearable tech, remote education, driver-less vehicles, virtual assistants, and so on. The equipment that communicates with these devices needs to live closer to users to be most effective. Thus the streaming of content and generation of data within the Internet of things is driving the need for edge computing and led to accelerating the demand for edge data centers.
Edge Data Center Market is valued at USD 8330.2 Million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 36502.6 Million by 2028 with a CAGR of 23.5% over the forecast period.
Increasing research and developments in this field can provide various opportunities for the further growth of the market.
