Simply defined, edge computing is a distributed, open IT architecture that features decentralized processing power, enabling mobile computing Internet of Things (IoT) and other low latency technologies. With edge computing, data is processed by the device itself or by a local computer or server, rather than being transmitted to a distant data center. Edge computing enables data-stream acceleration, including real-time data processing without latency. It allows smart applications and devices to respond to data almost instantaneously, as it’s being created, eliminating lag time. Read the full article featuring DataBank here.
