John Fu: A Zenlayer Perspective of Edge Computing
John Fu: A Zenlayer Perspective of Edge Computing

What is edge computing? To visualize, imagine an octopus with many tentacles. Octopuses have a neural ring that circumvents the brain, allowing the tentacles to communicate independently and efficiently perform various functions like eating, without passing information back to a central location.   

Similarly, an edge network is a distributed computing model that avoids routing most data into a central data center. An edge network can analyze data no matter where it originates, and in much less time.

Edge Computing and Cloud Computing: Replace or Coexist?
Edge Computing and Cloud Computing: Replace or Coexist?
By Zenlayer | March 09, 2021

There’s a new trend in modern computing that is coming up behind cloud computing, and this is called “edge computing.” The relationship that edge computing and cloud computing have can be fairly complex. Here’s a look at whether edge computing is set to replace the cloud, or whether, ultimately, something else will happen more akin to coexistence.

Does Edge Computing Mean The End Of Cloud Computing?

The cloud is becoming a blunt tool in the shed. The trend towards edge computing seems to be slowly pushing cloud computing to the edge. Is edge computing vaporizing clouds? The short answer is no. But the more complex answer is cloud computing may not always be the best solution. Edge Computing vs. Cloud Computing Edge…
