Securing the Edge of Your Network
More and more industries are shifting toward edge computing. Edge computing aims to reduce latency through the use of small-scale data centers that put IT resources a single hop away from users and devices. Variously known as cloudlets, micro data centers, or fog nodes, these edge resources can deliver services and cached content faster and serve as collection points for IoT data that requires local processing. Edge data centers may be housed in co-location facilities, but they are just as likely to be implemented in branch offices, retail stores, distribution centers, and other remote locations.
Why Edge Computing
Edge computing helps to relieve network congestion and reduce data transport costs by conserving network bandwidth. It can also reduce cloud storage costs and improve regulatory compliance through data localization.
