Designed to put applications and data closer to devices – and their users. While cloud computing drove the creation of mega data centers, edge computing brings distributed IT with an exceptional number of micro data centers.
Edge computing is an IT deployment designed to put applications and data as close as possible to the users or “things” that need them.
Edge Computing vs Fog Computing
These industry terms have such similar intent that they can be used interchangeably, and the industry is leaning towards Edge Computing as the de facto standard. Some may have coined the phrase Fog Computing, but the majoity of players in the industry have adopted the term Edge Computing.
Why is Edge Computing Necessary?
Edge computing is necessary to address shortcomings in cloud-based applications and services with respect to performance and regulatory requirements. In short, cloud computing can’t always meet the required demands in terms of response time that critical applications require. Companies that face government regulations regarding where data is stored may also find cloud computing can’t deliver the sort of local storage they need.
It’s an issue because the trend toward digitisation to improve efficiency and business performance is fueling demand for applications that require peak performance, particularly Internet of Things (IoT) applications. IoT applications often require lots of bandwidth, low latency, and reliable performance while meeting regulatory and compliance mandates, making them classic candidates for the edge.
