Edge Computing

In traditional computing, processing is mainly performed on local servers and in the cloud. Edge computing pushes applications, data, and computing power to the edge of the Internet—to mobile devices, sensors, and end users. Moving compute to the edge has many benefits: faster response times, data privacy and security, and resiliency if the cloud becomes unavailable. Enabling operations at the edge is relevant in a growing number of systems ranging from battle operations to improve intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance to those in other domains, such as field research, field medicine, transportation, and environmental analysis.
