Welcome to our new blog series: Edge Computing Thought Leadership. This collection of blogs will focus on new technologies and industry leaders in the edge computing market as way to educate a broad IT audience in the future capabilities at the edge.

Company: Macrometa

Macrometa Global Edge Fabric is an Edge Native Platform as a Service (PaaS) for building distributed applications and APIs for the web, mobile devices, IoT, gaming and more. It delivers instant, low latency stateful data for Single Page Apps (SPAs), Progressive Web Apps (PWAs), and more.

Chetan Venkatesh, CEO at Macrometa on how edge will generate an entire new class of services based on proximity to customers, location awareness, and the ability to co-ordinate data and services that don’t work in a centralized cloud. The edge requires a paradigm shift from the current architecture of databases as edge demands the processing of massive amounts of data in real-time to present the customer with instant responses.

Challenges of edge computing for application developers:

  • Complexity of large-scale distributed systems
  • Real-time data analysis at significant volume
  • Leverage existing languages
