    • How to simplify cloud edge computing

    • Enterprises today are turning to cloud edge computing to better manage and process the vast amount of data being generated by edge devices. By shifting processing away from centralized data centers to edge locations, enterprises can significantly reduce latency, increase bandwidth, improve reliability and reduce costs.

      But as IT teams add cloud edge computing resources to their portfolio of cloud infrastructure, the task of managing multiple clouds becomes unwieldy. When seeking solutions to manage cloud edge computing and multicloud infrastructure more easily, more enterprises today turn to solutions from Dell Technologies.

    • The challenge of cloud edge computing

    • The amount of data produced at the edge of networks today is growing exponentially. From new technologies like Internet of Things (IoT) and self-driving cars to existing technologies like cell phones, laptops and gaming systems; the sheer volume of data that edge devices are producing is threatening to halt bandwidth, increase latency, limit reliability and significantly add to costs.

      The problem lies in where all this data is getting processed. Sending vast amounts of data from edge devices to centralized data centers and back again — often multiple times — is an extremely inefficient and costly way to process critical data. By decentralizing processing and relocating it to the edge of the network, enterprises can create a cloud edge computing solution that allows edge devices to respond faster while consuming less bandwidth and reducing costs.

      While cloud edge computing holds enormous promise for increasing computing power, it raises serious management issues for IT teams. Adding cloud edge computing to public cloud and private cloud resources means that IT teams are required to juggle an ever-greater number of enterprise cloud platforms, each with its own set of tools and processes. The result is a kind of management chaos that can only result in higher costs, greater complexity and limitations in agility, speed and innovation.

      What’s needed is a better way to manage multicloud solutions by unifying them in a hybrid cloud architecture with a single management plane and a common set of tools, infrastructure and operations. That’s where Dell Technologies can help.

    • FAQs: What is cloud edge computing?

    • What is cloud edge computing?

      Cloud edge computing is the practice of moving responsibility for data processing away from centralized data centers to clients and devices from the edge of the network. Rather than requiring edge devices to send raw data back to data centers for processing, an edge cloud architecture keeps the responsibility for processing data within the edge devices, creating a vast network of processors that can rival the power of very large data centers. 

      What are the benefits of edge computing?

      By allowing edge devices to process the data they need, edge clouds can significantly reduce latency and provide a higher quality experience on devices like cell phones, laptops, IoT devices, gaming systems and self-driving cars. Edge computing can also reduce costs by eliminating the need to transmit large amounts of data from the edge of the network to centralized data centers, freeing up bandwidth for other purposes.
