Edge Cloud is a form of distributed cloud made up of an ecosystem that brings computing, data storage and networking closer to the location, or “Edge”, where it is needed. This has many advantages including geographical bound or localised data storage, lower latency reducing response times, potential for higher last-mile bandwidth and reduction in bandwidth backhaul costs for operators.
User cases for Edge Cloud are not only dependant on where it is placed, but what’s its intended role is or what services it needs to delivery. Being a distributed cloud platform also means that it can be dynamic and scalable in order to cater for multiple scenarios.
Edge Cloud is a critical element in advancing and delivering 5G networks. The 5G standalone core, decentralised nature and software defined networking (SDN) components are now virtualised or containerised compared to the traditional hardware based approach.
Typically users of High-Powered-Compute (HPC), Edge Cloud placed in business or science park can help with delivering new an innovative products and solutions, reduce costs by off-loading existing on-premises IT workloads and increase collaboration with shared and centralised resources.
