Edge compute is on everyone’s mind, whether they are deploying IoT solutions, planning next-generation data centers, or even enabling new technologies such as AI/computer vision and augmented reality. For example, Gartner predicts that the amount of enterprise-generated data created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud will grow from 10% currently to 50% by 2022. The reasons are clear as the edge does and will increasingly be used to manage the extreme amount of data generated from today’s connected devices and systems. These connected “things” work together to reduce latency and speed up analytics, to decrease connectivity and data access costs, and lastly but equally important, to improve security and meet compliance requirements.
However, a shift to a more distributed compute architecture can open up a level of complexity that must be anticipated and managed. Enterprises should plan to address monitoring, management, and security for everything that is connected to their network from deployment to decommissioning. VMware IoT and Dell’s joint solution helps enterprises overcome this level of complexity by enabling them to continuously manage, monitor and secure gateways/edge systems while monitoring the health of these devices.
Dell Technologies is excited about the ability to enable solutions across our portfolio of companies including Dell, Dell EMC, VMware, Pivotal, RSA, Virtustream, and Secure Works. It is through this tight engagement and that with our IoT Solutions Partners that we enable customers to realize the benefits of edge computing, while proactively avoiding the pitfalls.
Join the Conversation
Please join VMware and Dell for our webinar on how to “Get an Edge on the Edge” as we address the major decisions around edge deployment and management through practical discussion and anecdotes derived from hundreds of customer engagements.
In this webinar, we will be covering:
- How to make decisions between what happens at the edge between and cloud
- What kind of an architecture you need for edge computing
- Why security and management cannot be an after thought
- How Pan-Dell IoT products can help edge computing
We hope you’ll be able to join us for this informative and valuable webinar. To learn more about the speakers and register for the event, please visit the webinar registration portal.
