With projections of up to 50 billion Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices by 2020, many industries are finding ways to leverage IoT. Data Centers and Edge computing sites are uniquely positioned to leverage IoT and improve visibility, efficiency, availability and scalability, for a more profitable business.
The IT landscape continues to change. Trends are driving more and more computing to the "edge of the network". Professionals today are asking what this means to their infrastructure power systems.

Years later and countless hours spent trawling up motorways and crawling around cities, that dream had been firmly wiped from my mind. Yet in the near future, it looks like becoming a reality for the next learner generation.
I vaguely remember when I first came across the concept of the data center. In fact, it was the discovery of a seemingly obscure and futuristic sounding thing called a ‘mainframe’.
