Edge Computing

Edge Computing is a tight network of microdata centers that process or store critical data locally and push all received data to a central data center or cloud storage repository, in a footprint of less than 100 square feet.

The microdata centers used in Edge computing are utilized in a variety of situations where it’s not ideal for devices to be constantly connected to cloud services or where critical data can suffer from latency when processing large volumes of information. Instead, the data is compiled, handled, and analyzed locally on the “edge” of the network before being sent on to a central data center or off into the cloud.
