The edge of network is a juggernaut, and it has to be to keep up with the ever-increasing demands for data and compute, right down to the individual level. Martin Olsen of Vertiv, shares the results of the company’s recently concluded global survey on growth at the edge of network.
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.
