Nowadays, just about every business makes heavy use of SaaS, PaaS and SaaS (Software, Platform and Infrastructure as a Service). However, we've started witnessing one of the greatest changes of the decade.

“By 2019, at least 40% of data will be stored, processed, analyzed and acted upon close to, or at the edge of the network,” said IDC.

Cloud Computing Has Failed to Address Its Limitations

● The cloud model requires to transfer data from end devices to data centers far away.

● It is 100% dependent on Internet light-speed connectivity to deliver services worldwide.

● This hinders the overall SaaS experience and makes it impossible to rely on cloud for real-time processing.

There Is a Totally New Computing Paradigm

● Wireless-enabled and autonomous smart devices have gradually been overtaking the traditional LAN-attached end-user workstation.

● Miniaturized devices have sensors on board and can collect data, but they are lacking the CPU, storage and memory to execute programs.

● The IT industry has been forced to look into other ways to process data with a decentralized approach.

In this new paradigm, the load is shared between different, distributed systems. Each of them can provide fast computing power to the end-user, over the network and at a short distance.

What Is Edge Computing?

Edge computing refers to the process of computing data ‘at the edge’ of the network.

An edge computing infrastructure literally consists of micro data centers (or ‘cloudlets’) that are deployed in cell towers, public infrastructure, or any kind of connected equipment in offices and homes.

These edge nodes being closer to the end devices, computing is done directly at – or near – the source of data, as opposed to relying on a cloud data center that may be thousands of kilometers away.

Edge computing guarantees faster response rates, low latency, real-time processing, and better security as data no longer has to be transferred over multiple public routers.
