Continuing Education

Learning Objectives - After this course, you should be able to:

  1. Explore technology trends (Internet of things and artificial intelligence) that are driving the growth of the digital building.
  2. Define an edge data center.
  3. Implement tips on deploying an edge data center solution and how to incorporate an edge facility within a digital building's infrastructure.
  4. Use modular data center infrastructure solutions to deploy an integrated, scalable, edge solution within your digital building portfolio.



The demand for big data, instantaneous video, Internet of things (IoT) and the growth of the digital building are pushing IT management teams to consider the deployment of edge data center solutions--where computing occurs closer to the user. Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used by intelligent building systems and IoT to help technology become part of the modern digital building. Edge data center solutions will be used to seamlessly connect the digital building to the cloud and the digital ecosphere and edge data center facilities will be integrated within the new digital building infrastructure.
