What Is The Edge Network (And Why Should I Care)?

3 min read

Introduction

In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of using a cloud-based edge network in your application. We’ll discuss what the edge is and how it can connect to the cloud. Then, we’ll explore some reasons why you might want to use an edge network for your application, service or product. Lastly, we’ll discuss when you’d want to use an edge computing network in relation to other types of computing resources (like cloud computing).

What Is Edge Computing?

Edge computing is a new way of distributing data and computing power. It’s the practice of processing data close to the source of the data, rather than sending it over long distances to be processed by centralized servers in one location.

Edge computing is used to optimize performance and reduce latency–for example, when you’re trying to load an image on your phone or computer screen as quickly as possible. It can also improve security and privacy by placing sensitive information at points closer to where it will be accessed (and hopefully protected).

How Does The Edge Network Connect To The Cloud?

The Edge Network is a way to connect the cloud with your devices. The idea behind edge computing is that you can process data on the device itself instead of sending it all the way back to a central server, which can increase efficiency, reliability and security.

Edge computing also allows for more accurate data collection since no information needs to be sent over long distances before being analyzed; this results in lower costs for both businesses and consumers alike.

Why Would I Need Edge Computing?

Edge computing is a powerful tool for developers who are looking to keep their products secure and stable. It can also help you improve the performance of your product, reduce latency, and lower costs.

When Should I Use An Edge Network For My Application, Service Or Product?

The Edge Network is ideal for applications that need to connect directly with a cloud service, but don’t want or can’t send their data over the internet. For example:

  • If you have an application running on a laptop and want to connect it to a database in the cloud without using Wi-Fi or cellular data (a common use case).
  • If you have an IoT device that doesn’t have Wi-Fi capabilities and needs access an analytics platform like Redash or Looker (another common use case).

The Edge Network is also ideal for applications where there is high bandwidth cost associated with sending data over long distances from your device/sensor(s) into the cloud. This could be due to poor connectivity options available locally (e.g., rural areas), high latency between endpoints and servers due to distance constraints between them being too great for standard internet connectivity options like 4G/LTE networks, etc…

Edge computing is a powerful tool for developers who are looking to keep their products secure.

Edge computing is a powerful tool for developers who are looking to keep their products secure. Edge computing is a way to keep data and applications secure, as well as ensure that they’re always available when needed.

The Edge Network (EN) is our proprietary platform that allows you to host your application on our servers instead of yours or Amazon’s servers. This means you don’t have to worry about data being accessed by anyone else but yourself!

Conclusion

In conclusion, edge computing is a powerful tool for developers who are looking to keep their products secure.
