"THE EDGE" IS NOT A PLACE
Today’s architects and developers are comfortable with powerful cloud infrastructure service abstractions that help them quickly build applications. The (REST API + stateless microservice + database) model for cloud apps works remarkably well - from Netflix to Office 365. Though many cloud apps have complex architectures (eg: here’s Drupal in AWS), there is a beautiful simplicity when compared to IT-oriented app architectures of a decade ago: You don’t need to worry about what devices a service runs on or even where it runs.  Your app consumes scalable infrastructure services via REST APIs. Add orchestration to deal with dynamic needs like service scaling or replication, and you’re set.  Cloud computing, therefore, is an established set of abstractions that make it easier for application developers to develop quickly, deploy fast, and reliably scale their application with the infrastructure hassles taken care of.
