In technology, it's easier (and cheaper) to access information from a local server rather than one that's farther away. This explains why companies originally had individual servers to accommodate their vast amounts of data. However, now that cloud companies have made it so simple to get extremely fast access to information, it's opened up new doors of freedom to countless companies. However, this doesn't change the fact that local servers are still more convenient and less expensive, which is exactly why EdgeConnex has decided to move information from Minneapolis away from servers that are 400 miles away and to the Minneapolis area, where the Minneapolis population can take advantage of local servers. This may show a big trend throughout the industry.


The Race of Data Centers 

 A cloud edge data center like EdgeConnex cuts down on the costs of moving data miles away from the original location while increasing user experience with faster connection speeds. The benefits of the cloud allows companies to skip over costly infrastructure upgrades and expensive energy bills, especially considering a large percentage of the equipment was sucking up electricity without actually performing useful processes. With the huge growth in such a small amount of time, it's turned a lot of eyes in the tech industry to everything from the best ways to make improvements to where the data centers should be. In this case, the company felt it was entirely inefficient to use Chicago data centers for Minneapolis-St. Paul, especially considering the Twin Cities do an impressive amount of business on their own. Each of EdgeConnex's 23 data centers built for this purpose manage them remotely, and they strive to keep the quality and design as equal across the board. Since data centers can be extremely sensitive to environmental factors, it's impossible for them to be exactly the same, but the careful attention means that companies can trust their information in the hands of the data centers.


The Future of Cloud Edge 

 It looks like this will continue to expand throughout the US, but not overnight. EdgeConnex predicted they'd have about 7 more data centers than they have right now. They are still growing of course, but not at the rate they originally thought. As long as there isn't a huge disruption in the industry, it does seem that companies will continue to utilize the vast benefits of the cloud, from simplicity to cost saving. Since data centers have a huge cost incentive themselves to make their physical locations more local to the people they serve, and especially since they can manage them from afar, you can expect more openings around the US in the coming years. If you don't know where your data is exactly, it would be worth checking into and if there are any plans for the future to move it closer to where you are. Growth will be slower in less tech-savvy cities, but places like Austin, Denver, Phoenix and Seattle are definitely accepting this strategy with open arms.
