Edge computing has become an increasingly influential concept as we strive to better understand, automate and control the world around us. It plays an important role in the digital transformation strategy of organizations seeking to launch new services, improve customer experience, increase productivity, save costs, and gain competitive advantages.
Moving all of the data to the cloud or to traditional datacenters for processing is simply too slow, inefficient or costly. Issues surrounding network reliability, bandwidth, latency, and security make doing so impracticable. Edge computing solves these problems by placing compute resources close to where the people or things produce or use data. A network of remote micro data centers can host applications, store and process critical data. This enables decisions to be made locally and actions to be taken promptly - often in real-time.
