Edge Computing: Deployment, Advantages, and Disadvantages

What Do You Understand About Edge Computing?

  • According to Gartner’s report, by 2022, 50% of enterprise-generated data would be generated and processed outside of centralized cloud data centers via edge computing.
  • Based on IDC’s Worldwide Edge Expenditure Guide, enterprise & service provider spending on software, hardware, and services around edge solutions will expand at a rapid pace through 2025, reaching around $274 billion.

Edge Computing & Relationship with Cloud

Why is Edge Computing Gaining Popularity?
