Demystifying Edge Computing — Device Edge vs. Cloud Edge

Cloud computing is going through a fundamental shift in which the traditional model of accessing highly centralized resources is replaced by a distributed, decentralized architecture. This new paradigm called edge computing, brings the core building blocks of cloud – compute, storage and networking – closer to the consumers.

By moving compute closer to the origin of the data, the latency involved in the roundtrip to the cloud gets reduced. Some of the evolving use cases such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Internet of Things (IoT) benefit from edge computing. End users of these applications enjoy immersive experiences delivered by the edge.

Though IoT is the key driver of edge computing, many use cases are accelerating the pace of adoption. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning models rely on cloud for the heavy lifting. Typically, an ML model is trained in the public cloud and deployed in the edge for near real-time predictions. Edge computing becomes an essential component of the data-driven applications.

Edge computing is in its early days. As with many of the emerging technologies, it is a bit confusing to the customers. Vendors from multiple segments are positioning edge computing in different forms. The current market landscape consists of players from the public cloud, networking companies, pure-play ISVs and industrial automation companies. Each of these segments tackles edge computing differently, which is adding up to the confusion. I am attempting to demystify and classify edge computing based on the use cases and scenarios.
