DCs´ 2017 Trend#9 Smartcities & mDCs
They are now growing in the next 20-30 years and more, so the compute, storage and connectivity with concepts like virtual reality, IoT, BIG data, autonomous cars, AI, , machine learning, sustainability,..... to mention some of them are changing our world not tomorrow but today. So all of this computation has to occur in the EDGE in every corner to fulfill retail, real state, grocery, maintenance, pizzas delivery business and so on.
We need to be prepare to deploy more and more micro DCs maybe one or two cabinets in a container or fixed modular facility. Smart cities are (will) be like "Jetsons" well I am no to sure -at least in this century- but all services and goods will need more and more where to recall the data -BIG enough- to make the future real.
So Smart Cities and data centres will go together without any doubt or what do you think?
