What is edge computing?


Edge computing is a distributed computing paradigm that brings computation and data storage closet to the where it is needed to improve response times and save bandwidth. In simple terms, edge computing means running fewer processes in the cloud and moving those processes to local places such as on a user’s computer, an IoT device, or an edge server.


Uses of edge computing


Edge computing optimizes internet device and web application by bringing the computing closer to the source of the data. It minimises the need for long-distance communication between the client and the server which reduces latency and bandwidth services.

Edge computing devices

It is open IT architecture that features decentralized processing power enabling mobile computing and the internet of things(IoT) technologies. Data is processed by the device itself or by the local computer or server.

Edge Computing Vs Cloud Computing


Edge computing data is used to process time-sensitive data, while cloud computing is used to process data that is not time driven. Edge computing is preferred over cloud computing in remote locations where there is limited or no connectivity to the centralised location.

Will edge computing replace cloud computing?


Edge computing devices are designed to gather and process data on-site and quickly and analyze data in real-time. It doesn’t focus on storing data.

According to some reports, instead of replacing cloud computing, it is safe to say that the edge computing will complement it.
