What goes into making a highly secure and ultra-responsive edge cloud environment?
The past couple of decades have seen a huge shift from on-premises computing to the cloud. But while the convenience of being able to access key resources from anywhere is undeniable, cloud data centers aren’t without their limits. Edge cloud is a solution to the limitations of conventional cloud computing.
Where latency, is a factor, edge computing wins over cloud-based processing every time. With time-sensitive events, such as predictive maintenance in manufacturing and industry, every millisecond counts. Edge computing brings data processing in close proximity to IoT devices to help build a highly integrated infrastructure with minimum latency.
Here are the key ingredients that make up the edge cloud:
When choosing an edge cloud solution, the key priorities to consider are network performance, application mobility, and security. However, taking advantage of edge computing doesn’t have to mean replacing your entire infrastructure. With a software-based solution that runs on all hardware, you can greatly reduce the costs the project and the time it takes to complete.
