Learn the Benefits and Drawbacks of Edge Computing

This exciting technology can extend compute power to places and scenarios previously considered unimaginable – but it carries some very real risks.
Edge computing can cover anything from a tiny single board system to a rack of mountable appliances. Put simply, all the data collection occurs locally and the useful, aggregated valuable data is then uploaded to the cloud for further computation or decision making.

Great examples of good uses of edge computing include remote device diagnostics and telemetry; the data they log is fed back to the manufacturers or support service teams to help them troubleshoot, improve reliability and even help identify issues that may occur in the future and be able to remediate them before they cause unscheduled downtime or reduction in service.
