EDGE COMPUTING: SAVING THE CLOUD FROM EPHEMERAL DATA
Edge computing is rapidly gaining momentum. Last week’s Linux Foundation news on the launch of LF Edge is one more sign of accelerating growth at the edge. What’s driving this sudden intense interest? It’s more than just the sheer number of edge devices or mounting concerns around interoperability and security. Pushing compute resources closer to the edge can save the cloud and networks from waves of ephemeral data. The concept of edge computing certainly isn’t new. In years BC (“before connectivity”), there were plenty of edge computing boxes. These featured single-board computers designed to specifications such as VMEbus, STDbus, PC/104, CompactPCI, AdvancedTCA and many others. Processing happened at the edge as data arrived. Ethernet connections made administration and results-sharing easier, but very few architectures relied on shipping all the data into the network. DON DINGEE READ MORE
