Digital Storage At The Edge
Providing computing resources at the edge of the Internet is becoming more important in modern information technology, particularly as high speed wireless data networks proliferate as well as the IoT and other smart connected things proliferate and demand grows for AI applications requiring low latency real time decisions. Storage and memory as well as computing will play an important role in the growth of edge computing. Let’s look at a couple of recent offering related to storing and using data at the edge, Zadara zStorage and Cloudian’s Streaming Feature Store.
Zadara announced a partnership with Zenlayer, a edge cloud service provider to provide Zadara’s consumption-based managed zStorage. zStorage is being made available to Zenlayer North American customers and will soon expand into emerging markets such as India, China, and South America.
According to the companies’, Zadara and Zenlayer now offer managed storage solutions that businesses can deploy from on-premises data centers, private colocation facilities, or the cloud with a cost-effective, 100% OpEx model. The addition of Zadara’s xStorage enables Zenlayer to provide backup and disaster recovery solutions on a global scale – even at the edge, closer to where data is generated and consumed.
