When it comes to computing, living on the edge is currently all the rage. Why? Edge computing is a way to decentralize computing power and move processing closer to the end points where users and devices access the internet and data is generated. This allows for better control of the user experience and for data to be processed faster at the edge of the network – on devices such as smartphones and IoT devices.
As enterprise organizations look to extend their corporate digital channel strategies involving websites with rich media and personalized content, it is vital to have a strong resiliency strategy.
Deploying a combination of cloud and edge services can help by: reducing unplanned downtime; improving security and performance; extending the benefits of multi-cloud infrastructure; speeding application development and delivery; and improving user experience.
