How cloud-native design enhances performance at the edge

Part of the On Cloud Podcast series

Edge computing is ubiquitous, but it still sometimes has issues with latency and scalability. Cloud-native principles can provide answers to those issues and give the edge what it craves--speed, scalability, and enhanced performance

Cloud-native principles power the edge’s need for speed

Cloud-native design principles make cloud apps scalable, flexible, and more quickly deployable. Those principles can be applied to situations other than cloud, as well. Take edge computing, for instance. Edge can be thought of as a point-of-presence cloud, so applying cloud-native principles to the edge can make app performance, processing, and scalability cloud-like. And it can help solve the “edge war” of the future: the battle to reduce latency to its vanishing point.


Now we're saying on the edge, well, what if we rethink what we mean by a datacenter? And now it isn't necessarily just some massive building with huge power and cooling requirements.
