Edge Computing: Friend or Foe of the Cloud?

Webinar Replay

Technological advancement keeps us forever at the edge of our seats with new technologies and buzzwords. The latest buzz word that has IT departments scrambling is “edge computing”.

The IDC defines edge computing as a “mesh network of microdata centers that process or store critical data locally and push all received data to a central data center or cloud storage repository, in a footprint of less than 100 square feet.” Experts predict that edge computing will supersede the cloud as the IOT and connected devices become more and more the norm. They argue that edge computing keeps data from the internet of things (IoT) devices closer than if the data is sent to the cloud. The IDC indicates that “in just two years 45 percent of data created by IoT will be stored, processed, analyzed, and acted upon by edge computing.”

In this round table experts are discussing how the cloud as we know it is evolving. The role of edge computing in this evolution. And what the future holds for the cloud and edge computing.

Here are some of the questions addressed in this roundtable discussion:

  • How do you define edge computing?
  • What’s driving this move to edge computing?
  • What are the challenges of edge computing?
  • What are the benefits of edge computing?
  • How does edge computing impact the cloud and our networks as we know them
    today?
  • How is it changing our networks?
  • Where do you see edge computing in 5 years?
