Building an edge computing strategy without leaving your network behind
Edge computing is a topic on the mind of more executives these days as tech companies advertise their ability to offer "edge intelligence." What company wouldn't want to have more intelligence? Deciding if an edge computing strategy is truly beneficial, however, means understanding which applications benefit from edge computing, and how to architect the network to support edge services. Start first with the question "Why would I need to use edge compute?" Applications that are being negatively impacted by latency and other network-related issues might benefit from edge computing. This is because edge computing places high-performance compute, storage and network resources as close as possible to end users and devices. While improving application performance for end users is a key attribute of edge computing, there are other benefits as well: Regulatory compliance – keeping data within certain geographic boundaries. Security – to perform authentication and other security functions closer to end users. Resilience – leveraging distributed cloud resources, to reduce reliance on applications residing in a single (or two) cloud region(s).
