AFL Edge Solutions
In today’s hyperconnected world, companies need a way to scale and analyze data faster, cheaper and better. The only way to do that is to move out of the cloud and onto the edge of the network, where most of the future data will be generated.
Edge computing “extends” the cloud network by bringing it closer to the applications and delivering services such as compute storage and processing power. This relieves the load on the cloud data center processing units and reduces traffic between applications and the cloud. As a result, it reduces latency, increases network efficiency and saves companies money in backhaul costs.
The edge is a continuum and spans anywhere between the end-device and the cloud/internet.
