This report—the first in an ongoing series—aims to show the state of edge computing today and educate the reader on where this collection of technologies is heading in the near future. Among the findings:
- Today’s internet is built around a centralized cloud architecture, which alone cannot feasibly support emerging application and business requirements.
- Edge computing has the potential to improve the performance, scalability, reliability
and regulatory compliance options for many critical applications.
- There is a tremendous opportunity to simplify and grow global infrastructure with edge computing.
