Why is Edge Computing Necessary?
Edge computing is necessary to address shortcomings in cloud-based applications and services with respect to performance and regulatory requirements. In short, cloud computing can’t always meet the required demands in terms of response time that critical applications require. Companies that face government regulations regarding where data is stored may also find cloud computing can’t deliver the sort of local storage they need.
It’s an issue because the trend toward digitization to improve efficiency and business performance is fueling demand for applications that require peak performance, particularly Internet of Things (IoT) applications. IoT applications often require lots of bandwidth, low latency, and reliable performance while meeting regulatory and compliance mandates, making them classic candidates for edge computing.
Edge Computing vs Cloud Computing
Micro Data Centres
A micro data centre is a configurable, secure, self-contained enclosure with the capability for all essential IT components, often employing converged or hyperconverged infrastructure, along with management and monitoring software devices. It also contains all required supporting racks, UPSs, power, and cooling.
Protect critical IT assets from malicious accidents or environmental incidents that cause downtime. Get device level cyber security with ultra secure enclosure options and remote monitoring & control.
