As rapid, multi-industry advances reshape the way our world communicates, operates, educates and finds entertainment, technologies like AI, IoT, VR and a whole lot of other acronyms have taken the world by storm. However, as we look to truly harness the power of these technologies and adapt them to a dynamic world, the edge data center remains king. 

Edge data centers have been a much-discussed facet of IT due to their importance in getting the right levels of latency and speed for tomorrow’s fast-paced, data-intensive applications — but not all edge data centers are created equal. That’s because not all edge data centers have data gravity. 

Many may know data gravity as a force that guides data and applications together and makes them hard to keep mobile, but data gravity has another side that is proving to be extremely important to how new IT frameworks are being architected. 

If you’re interested in learning how and why data gravity is becoming one of the most important considerations for edge strategies — and technological transformations as a whole — then our recent feature in Techopedia is for you. Take a look at this piece by our VP of Business Development, Greg Elliott, to learn more about the symbiosis between edge data centers, data gravity, and business IT. 


If you’re interested in benefiting from the advantages of close proximity to a major data gravity hub, then look no further than 1623 Farnam’s edge data center.
