Why Place a Data Center in an Edge Market?
Users expect constant access to data and applications, which means you need to deliver them with proximity in mind in order to guarantee performance.
While your primary infrastructure may still reside near a major market, placing cloud or colocated environments in an edge location can help you lower latencies, balance loads across the country, and expand the reach of your services without building a new facility.
An "edge market" is one outside of the largest cities—places like Denver, Cincinnati, or Minneapolis. These locations have started to attract IT service operators thanks to gains in cost savings and performance when delivering services to growing populations. Often times, these locations have lower energy costs, offer tax incentives, and have proximity to broadband.
