Industrial facilities face an avalanche of data from connected sensing, automation, and facility systems. In most modern industrial applications, this data sits idle or underutilized. The emergence of IoT devices has added to this flow of data. Read the entire article here.
With a post-pandemic rush to prepare commercial buildings for the full or hybrid return of staff and employees, smart buildings are being reconfigured in design and spacing to allow for the safety and health of the occupants while also accommodating what is being seen as a permanent change of some more remote workers as a staple to business.

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) defines a solar project as utility-scale only when it generates over 1 megawatt (MW) of solar energy, while the National Renewable Energy Laboratory uses a 5 MW threshold to qualify utility-scale solar projects. Over the last two years, according to Energy Information Administration, renewable energy resources have been the nation’s fastest growing electricity generation source. Read the entire article here.
Set in remote, hard-to-reach areas, unmanned Edge data centers are mostly operated with software solutions – including IoT platforms, which enable remote management, triage, and monitoring of the sites. This is an ideal scenario to maintain operations amid disasters, or as proven during the current pandemic crisis. Read the entire article here.
In the pandemic recovery world, an increase in compute-intensive technologies e.g. IoT, AI, and others, will remain as major drivers of the Edge market; with demand expanding, data centers must move closer to the Edge to allow for more robust connectivity to meet both enterprise and consumer needs.

The annual Consumer Electronics Show was a virtual event this year, as most other events have been, but there was still a lot to digest for the digital workplace. Smart homes and smart buildings were a favorite topic, but there was also a lot of talk about the smart enterprise. Read the entire article here.
2020 has been a year of disruption for everyone living on planet Earth. Interestingly, technology has been a positive force in 2020 offering stability and growth. Though not without hurdles, the data industry (and I.T. if I were to include a category) was pushed into an amazing race to prove its claims. Read the entire article here.
Data centers are expanding beyond large-format facilities and moving to the edge—and for very good reasons. A distributed architecture helps localize computing power closer to customers, decreasing latency, and expediting data transfer. Read the entire article here.
Pulling water out of thin air — a concept too good to be true or too obvious to ignore?
Genesis Systems’ generator systems are capable of extracting water directly from the atmosphere — even in the driest of regions — and producing freshwater at an industrial scale.
