Demystifying Edge Computing — Device Edge vs. Cloud Edge

Date: September 16, 2017 Published by

  • The goal of edge computing is to minimize the latency by bringing the public cloud capabilities to the edge.
  • This new paradigm called edge computing, brings the core building blocks of cloud – compute, storage and networking – closer to the consumers.
  • Some of the evolving use cases such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Internet of Things (IoT) benefit from edge computing.
  • Each of these segments tackles edge computing differently, which is adding up to the confusion.
  • Though IoT is the key driver of edge computing, many use cases are accelerating the pace of adoption.
