When it comes to your remote sites, the cloud is simply too far away for your systems of record and applications. Latency, bandwidth, cost, security, reliability, and compliance requirements mandate that data and applications stay as close to the remote work site, even if that means a less-than-hospitable environment for your supporting hardware. Across manufacturing, retail, healthcare, and other industries, this creates challenges in supporting the frontlines of work.
