Edge Computing: What it is; Why it’s Important; and How it can be Leveraged

AI (Artificial Intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things) are both taking off, and that means more and more data.

It isn’t practical to ship all that data across the world to a few large data centers, so these applications are turning to Edge Computing, which brings cloud computing and storage to the local area.  Edge locations can be anything from your local cell tower, to an office or retail location, or even a ship, plane or satellite!

Edge computing is a new field that is ramping up quickly due to the demand, with lots of innovative use cases and open source initiatives to solve the hard problems of distributing workloads across thousands of locations.
