Edge Computing for Beginners: 11 Key Concepts

Managing Director Craig Wright was quoted extensively in this primer article on edge computing and how enterprises can strategically leverage its benefits. Sample excerpt: "Moving computing and storage to the edge of the network speeds up communications. This is particularly important when dealing with massive amounts of dynamic data, explains Craig Wright, managing director with management consultancy Pace Harmon... 'There must be careful attention to how virtual and physical objects and workloads will be distributed and how security will be addressed, while maintaining scalability and reliability across an ecosystem typically comprising thousands of highly diverse and dynamic elements,' says Wright. At a minimum, Wright continues, edge computing solutions must manage workloads across smart object and cloud platforms autonomously, be independently secure, and allow for the testing and demonstration of scalability and effectiveness using big data and real-time use cases."
