Make sense of edge computing vs. cloud computing

The internet of things is real, and itrsquo;s a real part of the cloud.

A key challenge is how you can get data processed from so many devices.

Cisco Systems predicts that cloud traffic is likely to rise nearly fourfold by 2020, increasing 3.9 zettabytes (ZB) per year in 2015 (the latest full year for which data is available) to 14.1ZB per year by 2020.As a result, we could have the cloud computing perfect storm from the growth of IoT.

After all, IoT is about processing device-generated data that is meaningful, and cloud computing is about using data from centralized computing and storage.

Growth rates of both can easily become unmanageable.[ Read the InfoWorld reviews: Amazon eases developers into IoT. | Azure brings IoT to .Net developers. | Stay up on cloud happenings with InfoWorld's Cloud Computing Report newsletter. ]So what do we do? The answer is something called “edge computing.” We already know that computing at the edge pushes most of the data processing out to the edge of the network, close to the source of the data.

Then itrsquo;s a matter of dividing the processing between the edge and the centralized system, meaning a public cloud such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
