Why the edge is integral to the sustainable future for computing

As data volumes grow, the shift to edge computing is integral to the IoT ecosystem. The edge will help to make projects both economically scalable and environmentally sustainable, while improving UX and enabling new cases. Taking a look at the storage and transmission of data, we find that efficient edge computing can save 60+% of the CO2 and energy required by a purely cloud based model. Presenter: Vivien Dollinger, CEO and Co-Founder, ObjectBox

Impact of IOT and next-gen applications of Cloud & Edge infrastructure

Edge computing is becoming a practical reality for companies who want to deliver high-performance, low-latency services and applications to customers across the spectrum of commercial industries and the consumer sector. What will drive the transition to an edge architecture? When will it occur? And what are the business trade-offs for deploying edge infrastructure? In this session, Keith Rutledge will examine the dynamics between cloud and edge computing and how they complement, rather than obviate each other. Rutledge will also discuss the impact of IOT and next-gen applications on the proliferation of cloud and edge infrastructure, as well as the potential hurdles that must be overcome to enable end users to take full advantage of predicted capabilities. Presenter; Keith Rutledge, General Manager, Compass.

Comparing Cloud vs Edge efficiencies

Edge computing aims to deliver superior performance benefits by minimizing latency between client and server, and the dynamic scheduling and routing this requires also offers tremendous benefits in economizing and conserving energy resources/ As we move from relatively few, huge datacenters to a diverse population with numerous, distributed points of presence, we can more ably consider the trade-offs and benefits of pursuing sustainable and efficient deployments. In this talk, Kurt will discuss how the mechanisms required to deliver a cost-efficient edge compute experience also support energy-efficiency and conservation objectives. Kurt will present a series of experiments illustrating the performance and efficiency gains achieved by using context-aware, location optimized workload scheduling across a distributed edge vs. a single cloud instance. Presenter: Kurt Rinehart, Director of Information Engineering, Section.

Infrastructure at the IIoT Edge

As network traffic increases, and cloud computing consumption skyrockets, what are sustainable approaches to building and operating infrastructure - particularly data centres? Just as cities have struggled with the pollution and congestion of automobiles, industrial IOT faces challenges of efficiency and sustainability while solving for increasing growth and scale. how do we get our packets out of their cars and into public transit and ridesharing, while ensuring their safety and security? Presenter: Daniel Herb, Head of Product, vapor.io

Sustainability in a small form factor

As Edge compute continues to grow, making that edge as sustainable as possible is a paramount concern. This session will cover software defined power and microgrids for use in smart cities and communities in a sustainable form factor enabling resilience without extra infrastructure.
