When virtualizing multiple network functions and consolidating them onto a single platform, the ability to create flexible, scalable, and highly available nano-clouds at the edge and manage them at mass scale, is critical.
Industrial Control Systems manage and monitor all aspects of operations, so system resiliency and the ability to autonomically address failures and maintain uptime is crucial.
Given the remote nature of these installations and lack of onsite personnel, system resiliency, autonomous management, and zero-touch deployment capability are vital for maintaining maximum uptime.
With the volume of data generated by video cameras and their criticality of these systems in terms of safety and security, the need for an intelligent, scalable, and highly available infrastructure is crucial.
Retailers are leveraging AI and video analytics at the store level to differentiate their offerings and improve operations. These technologies require cloud-like capabilities on local infrastructure.
