EdgeOS™ Data Center Information Management: Remote Management When it Matters Most

March 19, 2020

At EdgeConneX, our strategy has always been to work closely with our customers to help them define and deliver the edge that their business needs in terms of the location, the size, and the density of each deployment while ensuring flexibility and responsiveness at every stage of the process. This strategy is critical for businesses who need to maintain business continuity, while ensuring the safety of customers and employees by accelerating business IT process efficiencies and supporting a quickly expanding mobile workforce. This is the philosophy behind EdgeConneX Data Centers and its remote management via EdgeOS™.
