Unlike traditional data centers, edge devices and services are managed outside the typical management sphere. Platforms are pushed outside the data center, devices are spread across huge areas in inaccessible locations, and applications run on demand closer to the data.
Scaling edge computing and Internet of Things (IoT) deployments represent a challenge that can’t be solved without a high degree of automation. Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), for example, planned to invest close to US$1 billion annually in new and modernized trains to create a smart, safe, and highly efficient rail network. Those new trains will include intelligent features such as dynamic LED information displays, digital seat booking systems, CCTV safety monitoring, and Wi-Fi access.
