The need for datacenter capacity for edge computing and the Internet of Things will lead to new datacenter form factors, as well as new cloud computing and networking approaches.

451 Research's 'Datacenter at the Edge' report examines the arguments both for and against the rapid buildout of datacenters at the edge, and includes edge architectural schemas, new datacenter types and an assessment of the types of workloads they will likely support.

This complimentary report excerpt contains a full analysis on the different types of edge datacenters, including datacenters for IoT and edge computing, and micromodular datacenters.
