What is Edge Computing?
Edge computing is a distributed computing model that brings data storage and processing closer to the source of the data. This can improve performance, reduce latency, and increase security.
Edge computing is sometimes referred to as fog computing. It is a distributed IT architecture that decentralizes computing resources and enables mobile computing and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.
In edge computing, applications, data, and computing power are moved away from centralized data centers and closer to the end-user. This means that data can be processed locally, without having to be transmitted to a remote data center.
The computation in edge computing is performed on edge devices, which are small, powerful devices that are located close to the end-user. Edge devices can be anything from smartphones to sensors to smart appliances.
Edge computing is a promising new technology that has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with the internet. It can improve the performance of applications, reduce latency, and increase security. It can also enable new applications and services that were not possible with centralized computing.
