Edge Computing

Definition

A distributed computing model that brings computation and data storage closer to the location where it is needed in order to improve response times and save bandwidth.

The aim of Edge Computing is to move the computation away from data centers towards the edge of the network, exploiting smart objects, mobile phones or network gateways to perform tasks and interact with cloud-based applications or services. By moving services to the edge, it is possible to provide content caching, service delivery, storage and IoT management resulting in better response times and transfer rates.
