As more users connect to the cloud and request data heavy in content and size — utilizing the edge for fast delivery will make complete sense. Learn more about the potential and benefits of true edge flexibility and how to tackle the challenges involved.
Insights and Trends on Edge Computing
Data is everywhere. As a digital transformation sweeps across our society and economy, Internet infrastructure must follow the data. Enter edge computing, which extends data processing and storage closer to the growing universe of devices and sensors at the edge of the network.
The goal of edge computing is to process data and services as close to the end user as possible. It’s an architecture that allows the compute and content delivery process to happen within 10 milliseconds or less of the user. The trend driving the edge computing model is the increased use of consumer mobile devices, especially consumption of video and virtual reality content and the growth of sensors as part of the Internet of Things.
It may be several years before there is a “pure play” opportunity for individuals to invest in edge computing, said panelists at last week’s Edge Congress. But private players are placing early bets, and watching trends for investment opportunities.
