The "Edge" is a new kind of vertical cloud

In the past, I've viewed edge computing as a new kind of tier to cloud computing and one that potentially eclipses the centralized clouds - because it's a natural place to run anything that is interactive, needs to analyze large volumes of shared state data and quickly compute against short time value data. Seen from Josh's perspective it almost seems inevitable to me that edge computing will eclipse cloud computing and that new companies will not just challenge but dethrone the big cloud incumbents.

The CDN is dead, Long Live the GDN*

Content Delivery Networks or CDNs have received a lot of attention in the last few years, with the emergence of newer and richer feature capabilities and features. Companies like Fastly and CloudFlare have entered the market with a focus on helping developers leverage the power of edge computing and hyper-locality to users by caching static content close to where it is being used.

The Great Shift - Edge Computing & Fast Data Processing

The cloud is going through a great tectonic shift. Put simply, we're now entering a new phase of the cloud where the main assumptions underlying its architecture inhibit it from solving emerging problems with data processing. The biggest shift in how we create data and use it is happening hidden in plain sight. The shift is from seeing and using data like its a historical record (seeing the world in the past tense), to seeing and using data as a dynamic set of events happening continuously in the now (seeing the world in the present tense instead of past tense) anywhere in the world.

Why Global Edge Fabric? Or Why we built a truly coordination-free distributed database for edge computing

Life happens in the HERE and in the NOW. The HERE and the NOW are defined by where we are and what interactions, events are going on around us and with us. These events and interactions occur in the real world and not some far off data center a thousand miles from us.

Cloud Computing Doesn't Matter in 2019

OK, I admit. This is a controversial statement. After that admission, I can honestly say that as a user, cloud computing doesn’t matter. It doesn’t make any difference where my apps live. Now, to the fun part

Edge Computing is a Distributed Data Problem

We are told that low latency and imagination are the only prerequisites for building tomorrow’s edge applications. Tragically, this is an incomplete and false hope. In order for robust, world-changing edge native applications to emerge, we must first solve the very thorny problem of bringing stateful data to the edge. Without stateful data, the edge will be doomed to forever being nothing more
