When Does One Person's Edge Become Another's MTDC?——Challenges and Opportunities in Multi-vendor, Multicarrier Networks
WU Jian;Comm Scope;
Till now, the lines of demarcation influencing the design and role of a data center were, at least somewhat, clear and consistent. The local service area tended reach out about 150 miles, give or take. Inside the data center, resources such as compute and storage capacity, as well as the links connecting the data center to the access network, were designed based on a predictable traffic load. This is especially true within the multi-tenant data center(MTDC) where physical location is often dictated by the latency requirements of its tenants. An MTDC that is proximal to a stock exchange, for example, has a high value to firms that require low latency access to that exchange. The location of the users typically defines the network's edge while the data center's location is dictated more by latency. Much of this is now changing.
