Edge computing acts upon and extracts value from data at or near the source. The Edge can be a fitness watch computing daily steps, a micro-data center on an oil platform or traffic lights in a digital city.
As more and more things happen at the Edge, IT must change compute, network, storage and apps architectures. All those changes need to be viewed in the context of data. Here are three best practices we help you with.
Avoid inconsistent edge standards as they can multiply complexity and problems.
Cloud native applications that are containerized will provide superior performance and reliability.
Preconfigured edge solutions can create usage rigidity and prevent scalability.
