The history of computing has gone through many phases. The early days of computer technology were dominated by physically large, centrally located mainframes, with thin terminals used by end-users. This centralized model migrated to mini-computers. The late 1980’s till early 2000s saw a shift where compute and storage became decentralized (and kind of local) with Desktop PCs and smaller and more powerful servers. The last decade has moved to a centralized model where computing, storage, and network have moved to the Cloud. This session covers an emerging paradigm – Edge Computing – where elements of computing, storage, and network are being moved closer in proximity to where these functions are best performed. We are in an era where Data is the new Oil. Edge computing brings compute (and to a certain degree storage & network) closer to where the data is being produced. Think of sensors producing a deluge of data. This session will provide an overview of how Edge Computing is going to impact and benefit from machine learning, distributed computing, IoT, decentralized technologies (like blockchain and distributed ledger) and hybrid computing.
