Edge Cloud for Dummies

The Edge Cloud is not like a Public or Private Cloud. This guide can help you understand the difference.

Although the edge cloud delivers “cloud-like capabilities,” it is not simply a smaller version of a public or private cloud. Public and private cloud resources are increasingly being consumed as commodity resources that are, for all intents and purposes, considered to be infinite. The edge cloud, in contrast, delivers premium resources that are highly distributed and typically hierarchical in nature, depending on the topology of the service provider network.

Learn About the Benefits of the Edge Cloud.

Lower Latency

By reducing the geographic distance that data must travel from the end device or enterprise application to compute and storage resources in the edge (located a few miles away) rather than the public cloud (often located hundreds or thousands of miles away), latency can be reduced from the 50 to 55 millisecond range typical in public clouds to between 1 and 6 milliseconds in the edge cloud.

Reduce Bandwidth

By offloading data processing and transfer from public cloud to edge cloud resources, edge cloud applications can make more efficient and cost-effective use of network bandwidth.

Improve Connectivity

By offloading data processing and transfer from public cloud to edge cloud resources, edge cloud applications can make more efficient and cost-effective use of network bandwidth.

Enhance Security

Security tokens, keys, and certificates can be stored in a distributed architecture across private data center, edge cloud, and public cloud resources to create better compartmentalization and reduce the opportunity for potential compromise in transit. Privacy and compliance requirements can be addressed by anonymizing personal data in the edge cloud on local resources, rather than in the public cloud, which may be located in another country or region of the world.

Autonomize Data

The edge cloud supports autonomous use cases (such as autonomous/semi-autonomous vehicles, drones, exploration and mining, and medical use cases) by enabling cloud-like capabilities even in limited-connectivity environments. Data collected by edge devices can be sent to the infrastructure edge for processing, filtering, and prioritization to determine what data needs to be sent to the public cloud (and when it needs to be sent) for further processing and/or storage.

Both users and operators need to get beyond the buzz-words and understand the concepts driving IoT and location-sensitive computing.  Good education is critical because Edge in the coming decade will be as impactful and disruptive as Cloud was in the twenty-teens.

The Edge Cloud represents the next evolution of cloud computing with its unique geo distributed architecture.  The opportunity is unprecedented but to take advantage of it, we all need a resource that explains in concise and easy way - the promise, potential and capabilities of the edge cloud. This book does an excellent job of preparing a reader for their edge cloud journey.
