Edge computing represents an emerging topology-based computing model that enables and optimizes extreme decentralization, placing nodes as close as possible to the sources and sinks of data and content. As a decentralized approach, it is a perfect complement to the hyperscale cloud providers' tendency towards centralization, where they take advantage of huge economies of scale.

The risk for enterprises is designing and implementing next generation networks, systems, and applications, but ignoring the possibilities of deploying at the edge, and ignoring decentralized benefits in favor of a centralized data center or hyperscale cloud provider model only. Join this webinar to get a better understanding of edge computing and how your organization can leverage it while avoiding risks.
