Want to meet the growing demand for digital services that work in real time?
As the demand for digital services increases, more and more data centers are also needed. Edge computing can be a solution for this. It creates a distributed system of a large data center that is in contact with the IoT devices at the edge of the network that process the data themselves.
In this way, a network is formed of a large data center with several small data centers that process the data locally. In this way, the correct service is provided, depending on the local storage needs.
There are disadvantages, such as reduced interoperability and security and possibly incomplete data processing. But that does not outweigh the real-time processing of data that edge computing makes possible. This offers advantages for use cases with low latency, which are therefore very dependent on the rapid processing of data for the proper functioning of the business processes. The self-driving car is again the best-known example of this.
In short, to meet the growing demand for digital services that work in real time, edge computing as a distributed computing technology is very important. In addition to cloud computing, it will have a major impact on today's data centers.
