Edge Computing ExplainedCategory: Definitions
Thanks to the Internet of Things is possible to connect real-world things to the Internet.
This capability allows getting status data of sensors such as temperature or humidity and acting over real-world things such as lights and doors.
IoT creates enormous quantities of data that need processing in a short time to make fast decisions.
The current cloud infrastructure and communication are not efficient in processing data.
Edge computing is a new architecture concept designed to overcome these challenges.
The main concept behind Edge computing refers to decentralization.
Edge computing proposes to add computing resources near the data source. These computing capabilities process data in an early and near-source environment.
