What is Edge Computing?

Edge computing is the practice of processing data near the edge of the network where the data is being generated, instead of in a centralised data processing warehouse.

Edge computing definition

Edge computing is a distributed, open IT architecture that features decentralised processing power, enabling mobile computing and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. In edge computing, data is processed by the device itself or by a local computer or server, rather than being transmitted to a data centre.
