With cloud computing being the most prevalent and popular form of data transfer and storage recently, it’s hardly left room for discussion of any other method.
But is it the most secure and beneficial way of transferring and storing data for your business?
Move aside, cloud computing, edge computing is here and it’s better.
Edge computing is similar to cloud computing in that it transfers and stores data in a cloud storage repository.
What makes edge computing superior to cloud computing is that it stores this data in a footprint of less than 100 square feet.
IoT devices transfer the data to a local device in a small form factor where the data is processed at the edge and then sent to the central storage repository in the cloud. Edge computing can also store to physical hardware as well as the cloud.
When IoT devices have poor connectivity, edge computing is ideal to get data more easily and faster.
Edge computing also reduces latency because it doesn’t require data to transfer to a data center or cloud for processing.
