It’s #techtuesday and today we are talking about the cloud. In fact, one lesser-known friend of the cloud user, and that is edge computing.
So, what is edge? Well, it is the cloud closest to you.
With more and more businesses investing in cloud computing (and they should, it has so many benefits!), it has become necessary to have remote locations close to where the computing needs to happen. These remote, or edge, locations need hardly any connection to access, and are a big help with processing time sensitive data. These locations are mini datacenters, much like the larger ones accessible in the main part of the cloud.
According to Simpli Learn, by 2022, the global edge computing market is expected to reach $6.72 billion!!
Ah, tech. We love how you keep evolving and keeping us growing!
