What Is Edge Computing?
Edge computing is a distributed computing model that incorporates computation and data storage and brings them closer to the sources of data. Edge computing allows for the computational processing of sensor data away from centralized nodes and moves it towards the logical edge of a network and near individual sources of data.
Edge computing can also be referred to as a distributed IT network architecture that encourages and facilitates mobile computing for locally produced data. Edge computing permits data to be captured, stored, and processed near the client source instead of in a centralized data processing facility.
