Peripheral computing, a type of architecture in which data and processing power are housed as close as possible to end users, is in vogue. So fashionable, in fact, that it can be easy to believe that this advantage makes “older” computer paradigms obsolete.
The Linux Foundation’s 2021 State of the Edge report predicts spending in cutting-edge computing environments will total $ 800 billion by 2028. And enterprise IT vendors of all sizes are positioning themselves to provide cutting-edge computing capabilities.
Suffice it to say that if you’re not up to date with cutting-edge computing concepts and priorities, now is the time to learn. This Edge Computing report in the Enterprise report explains how edge computing works, how it relates to cloud computing and data centers, how to address edge application development, and what industries will have the footprint of bigger edge in the future.
