Edge Cloud: Transcending Geographical Boundaries

Edge Cloud: Transcending Geographical Boundaries

Cloud computing in the past has been so limited by centralization that it has compromised speed and availability to its users. Data was required to be gathered from the outermost regions and sent back to the central servers to be processed. Devices at the outermost edges lacked the computation power to process large amounts of data or even store it, which was the basis for the centralized server. However, this has radically changed in the last couple of years. As more devices are connecting to networks that can help transmit data speedily via cellular or WiFi networks. So what was the hurdle in speeding up endpoints? The answer is the essential component: Hardware.

What does Edge computing bring to the table?

In the last ten years, devices have miniaturized processing and storage technology, slowly eliminating the problem of storing and computing edge data. IoT devices have become so powerful that they are a self-sustained computation unit. Edge computing helps consumers then perform analytics and apply data right where it is gathered, at the network edge. It opens up so many avenues. Specifically, it addressed the real-time application of collected data to its intended users. Reducing latency as data does not have to travel back to a central server, enhancing performance like never before.

According to a recent Right Scale survey – 93 percent of businesses use cloud technology in some form or other. Cloud computing has advantages for many types of organizations, but migrating your business to the cloud is easier said than done to ultimately profit from a step into the cloud. A range of critical decisions needs to be taken by organizations. Next, you have to determine what type of cloud system best suits the needs of your business. Although some well-known companies are hyperscale public cloud providers, a private cloud is a more suitable option for many organizations.

Gartner defines a ‘Private’ cloud as a form of cloud computing used by only one organization or ensures that an organization is completely isolated from others. A private cloud provides the benefits of flexibility, cost savings, security, and control. These benefits are especially valuable to businesses with predictable workloads or requirements for customization and companies in regulated industries.

Once an organization’s cloud needs and priorities are determined, it can determine whether the private cloud is the right kind of IT environment. The private cloud would be the only viable choice for specific organizations to ensure regulatory compliance, while the viability could be different for other organizations. An enterprise will assess its flexibility, compliance, security, and cost criteria to decide whether it will benefit from deploying a private cloud. It should also consider the applications it uses, what environment and its capabilities are suitable for them, and the kinds of services it offers. A professional service provider that provides hosting private cloud solutions can assist with these evaluations and provide organizational-specific recommendations.
