What Is an Edge Server?
Edge servers are globally distributed physical machines that enable data storage and computation close to data sources. These powerful devices, positioned in a strategic offsite location between the main server and end-user, can deliver computing resources exactly where they are needed to ensure enhanced data protection, improved network performance, and continuity of business operations. The ability to process and filter data on-site before it’s pushed into the cloud helps reduce infrastructure costs.

Edge and IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to pieces of hardware equipped with the technology to communicate and exchange data with other devices and systems. To be successfully implemented and provide the intended value to customers, IoT requires the continuous processing and analysis of a huge amount of data. Shifting computing services closer to the end-user helps reduce latency and bandwidth costs.
With the ability to store and process data required for IoT devices locally, edge helps you reduce communication latency and reach optimal performance.
Edge is the next frontier for digital transformation.
