This initiative will focus on bringing multicloud resources and exascale compute power closer to where customers run their businesses. Taking this approach allows organizations to make real-time decisions using capabilities like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and 5G, the companies said.
The companies plan to build technology hubs across the United States that will be capable of supporting multiple cloud environments with Switch’s edge data centers and Dell Technologies’ cloud infrastructure. The hubs will be placed in secure FedEx locations, with the first underway in Memphis, TN. The goal is to have the first location operational in early 2021.
