Edge Computing Solves Challenges Associated with Digital Transformation • Data Center Frontier

Digital Transformation
Traditional cloud architecture makes achieving digital transformation challenging - learn how to simplify the process (Image courtesy of EdgeConneX) 54% of enterprise IT leaders say digital transformation is their #1 top priority. Cloud is one of the most important tools in the digital transformation processes. But it’s not about the infrastructure, it’s about what the cloud enables: cost efficiency/savings, delivery speed of products and/or services, value delivered to business units, and increased speed of innovation. In short, a good cloud strategy can give you a competitive...

Quantum computing is so last-decade. Get ready to invest in the final frontier… teleportation

social
If 2020 had you wishing you could say “Beam me up, Scotty,” you’re not alone. You may be one tiny step closer to getting your wish… in a few decades or so. Scientists from Fermilab, Caltech, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the University of Calgary achieved “long-distance quantum teleportation” in mid-2020, they confirmed in an academic journal article published last month. It’s another step toward realizing what’s often called quantum computing, and also toward understanding physics on a different level than we do now, perhaps well enough to someday teleport humans. And while there is no ETF specifically for that yet, here are some broad guidelines for thinking about how to invest in very nascent technologies. For starters, it’s good to understand the broad contours of the industry supporting the idea. A...
