Smart Cities, Vehicles and Buildings of the Future
Why Data Centers are a Critical Component of Smart Cities
A variety of technologies – from connected cars, to smart buildings, andadvanced sensor networks – are being used by enterprises and cities to make existing infrastructure smarter. The data collected from these connected “things” help provide more responsive services, create new business and delivery models, and improve user satisfaction. These smart infrastructure applications increasingly rely on data centers to operate as close to the users as possible. Join us for our quarterly networking meeting – where our panel of experts will demonstrate how data centers are a critical part of a smart city.
In this panel presented by vXchnge & Prospect Silicon Valley, attendees will:
⚡️ Learn the difference between public and private cloud computing infrastructure.
⚡️ Learn why data centers are a critical platform for infrastructure such as connected mobility, homes and buildings.
⚡️ Understand how to utilize legacy vs. new data centers in current or future initiatives, and how to select the right data center (such as private vs public infrastructure).
⚡️ Discuss how latency – a key challenge with traditional cloud computing – can impact the efficacy of technology across the built environment, and how a private cloud can address this issue.
⚡️ Gain market insight on security considerations from the sensor to edge and into the cloud, plus every step in between.
