Edge computing trends
Edge computing is the next step in the evolution of efficient data networks. In recent years all focus has been on cloud computing driven by the speed, scale and the cost value of moving to the cloud solutions. Now we see major global players moving in a new direction. They are moving to the edge of the network because of the challenges in the centralized cloud network architecture such as latency, bandwidth and compliance. Edge computing might very well be best the answer to these challenges.
