Data has risen to become the most valuable resource in the digital age. A massive amount of data needs to be gathered, processed, and analyzed in real-time as a result of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, and cloud computing’s exponential growth. The traditional cloud computing infrastructure, while powerful, has issues with latency, bandwidth limitations, and data privacy. Edge computing, a revolutionary paradigm that provides a decentralized and effective response to the constantly growing demands of data processing and connectivity, has emerged in response to these constraints.
Edge computing is a distributed computing model that brings processing capabilities closer to the data source, be it IoT devices, sensors, or end-user devices, rather than relying on centralized data centers. By decentralizing data processing, edge computing minimizes the time and resources required to transmit data to distant data centers, reducing latency and enabling real-time decision-making.
