With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), a growing number of technologies are generating large amounts of data at the edge of computing networks. To better manage this rapid data growth, enterprises are deploying edge Cloud technologies that decentralize processing away from Cloud data centers, allowing edge devices to process data instead. By eliminating the need to transfer vast amounts of data from edge devices to centralize data centers, edge Cloud computing is helping to reduce latency, improve reliability, increase bandwidth and reduce costs.
Dell Technologies Cloud offers a suite of Cloud solutions that enable enterprises to operate and manage edge Cloud resources in their hybrid Cloud infrastructure. With Dell Technologies, IT teams can easily manage workloads across all public, private and edge Cloud infrastructure, relying on a common set of tools and infrastructure to simplify operations and maximize Cloud investments.
Dell Technologies Cloud can help modernize your data center, unify hybrid Cloud operations, build modern Cloud apps, and scale or migrate Cloud workloads.
Edge devices are growing in number and computing power. From mobile phones and laptops to connected cars, gaming systems and IoT devices, edge technologies are increasingly generating larger volumes of data and requiring more significant bandwidth. Attempting to manage this growth and data with traditional Cloud technology – where data is moved to and processed in centralized data centers – is becoming increasingly problematic. Challenges include:
To manage data generated by edge devices more efficiently, many enterprises are turning to technology that decentralizes processing, shifting processing responsibilities to edge devices. With edge Cloud infrastructure, organizations have more latitude to decide where a specific workload is best processed.
The challenge for IT teams is that as enterprises incorporate more Cloud services and technologies, the task of managing them can become incredibly complex. Each Cloud platform has its own management framework and processes. Without consistent tools, operations and infrastructure, managing multiple Cloud resources can easily add cost and complexity while limiting innovation.
To successfully reap the benefits of edge Cloud technologies and other Cloud products, enterprises need solutions that can unify public, private and edge Cloud resources on a single hybrid platform. That’s where Dell Technologies can help.
As a leading Cloud company, Dell Technologies provides solutions that enable enterprises to:

What is an edge Cloud?
An edge Cloud architecture shifts processing power from centralized data centers to clients or devices at the edge of the network. Rather than requiring edge devices to transmit raw data back to data centers for processing, an edge Cloud architecture keeps the responsibility for processing data within edge devices like cell phones, laptops, IoT devices, gaming equipment and self-driving cars. With an effective edge Cloud, millions of devices at the edge of the network can execute processing tasks that are typically only performed in very large data centers.
What are the benefits of edge Cloud computing?
By distributing processing tasks away from data centers to edge locations, edge Cloud computing enables more low-latency experiences on edge devices. This is particularly important for applications like self-driving cars, where a delay in processing data could be a life-threatening event. Edge Cloud computing also can help to reduce costs by minimizing the amount of data required to be transferred over long distances. And edge Cloud computing helps to reduce bandwidth requirements and improve the reliability of edge applications.
