Making the Case for Edge Computing

Are you asking yourself when edge computing makes sense, and when it doesn't? Well, you are the right place. Read on... Why does edge computing matter? Edge computing is a response to the explosion of data produced by IoT, sensors and other new digital sources. The idea is instead of pushing the raw data to the cloud for processing, let’s do the opposite and move the compute near the source of data.  I like to call this near data processing.

What is a Smart City?

This basic guide to smart cities gives an introduction to one of today's hot topics. Why is everyone talking about smart cities? It is estimated that the world’s population will grow to nine billion by 2043 and ten billion by 2083. This population growth is likely to produce the biggest strain on urban areas, with 11% of the global population currently living in the world’s 101 larger cities - a figure which is expected to rise to 23% by the end of the century. City governors and industry leaders have to find ways to deal with this huge expansion. At the same time, the latest technological advances give us access to solutions and services which were previously unimaginable. Look at how the internet and smart phone have changed the way you live. To address the key challenges of population expansion and rapid urbanisation, cities are exploring these technological advancements, to find ways to increase efficiency and help tackle the issues that come with an increased population.

Tackling Cloud Jargon

My previous post on cloud technologies didn't cover the type of computing resources provided by the cloud or who the customers of cloud services are. Providing those specifics involves understanding some of the jargon associated with the cloud.

Cloud and Edge are part of the same Continuum

There have been wild predictions recently that the edge will overtake if not kill the cloud in terms of volume of data processed. While it is helpful to raise awareness of the potential of edge computing, which is undoubtedly huge, it is also an oversimplification. Instead of adding fuel to this dispute, I prefer to offer peace and bring those two fundamental building blocks together.
