As the IoT revolution transforms modern agriculture, farms will generate a tremendous amount of data that the cloud simply won’t be able to accommodate. It is estimated that the average farm will generate over four million data points a day by the year 2034. In order to feed the planet, farms in the near future will need to connect at the edge – the periphery of the network that’s as close to the end-user as possible – in order to store and process this daily deluge of data.

Data centers today process ever larger, more complex volumes of data. Hybrid cloud, 5G wireless, the internet of things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI)-based applications are pushing traditional data center capabilities to their limits. Data centers require agility and intelligence to effectively manage these increasing demands and workloads.
The emergence of 5G and the exponential growth of IoT-based sensors and devices has created a demand for real-time data analysis that traditional cloud networks simply can’t provide.
5G’s initial effects will be most noticeable in technologies like medical robots and autonomous vehicles, it’s clear that 5G will positively – and significantly – disrupt enterprises and organizations leveraging latency-dependent technologies to analyze data in real time and deliver content instantaneously.
As enterprises adopt IoT technology and modern data demands require highly distributed, always-on IT delivery methods, IT leaders will need to leverage data center nodes in core markets where processing can occur near the data source.
