Edge computing is a method of optimising cloud computing systems by processing data at the edge of the network, near the source of the data. This method is used to streamline the flow of traffic from the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and help provide real-time local data analysis. Performing this method of computing closer to the edge of the network will allow your organisation to analyse important data in near real-time; which is the current requirement for organisations across many industries such as manufacturing, health-care, finance and others.
This whitepaper explains the various drivers of edge computing and explores the different types of available of this system available currently.
