Making Edge Easy - Micro Data Centres for Government
How micro data centres are giving government the edge
IoT gateways for Government
The powerful combination of Micro Data Centres (MDCs) and Edge Computing is set to impact every level of society – including that of local, national and global government. The reason for this boils down to one important fact: data collection.
The IoT (Internet of Things) is already generating huge amounts of data. This information is hugely valuable and pretty much every government department can benefit from this. From our reliance on smart devices through to infrastructure elements, the ability to collate, analyse and act upon such information in real-time is already a reality in many sectors.
IoT, edge computing and micro data centres
Local and federal government will see the benefits of IoT and edge computing in many different areas like security & surveillance, traffic management, contingency management, connections within smart cities, border control, etc.
All these applications generate a lot of data that needs to be processed instantly, as well as stored and shared safely.
How Government will benefit from IoT gateways, edge computing and micro data centres
The potential of having multiple IoT gateways on the edge is tremendous. While there’s a great deal of complexity to be navigated, various government departments around the world have already begun investing in Edge infrastructures.
True Edge computing brings about many possibilities, with some examples including:
