Edge computing: Centralizing services into data centers
Edge computing is computing that takes place near the physical location of either the user or the source of the data. By placing computing services closer to these locations, users benefit from faster, more reliable services and companies benefit from the flexibility of hybrid cloud computing. Edge computing also allows the compute-intensive parts of a rendering pipeline to be offloaded to the cloud, preventing lags in computing power.
