When we talk about an OpenStack cloud we imagine few geo-redundant datacenters with thousands of servers in each. Edge Cloud changes the rules and deploys thousands of datacenters with few servers in each.
Edge Cloud can distribute the load and the capacities and brings the services closer to where those are used … to the customers. It introduces the real cloud liquidity with automatic rebalancing and deploying the services where those are really needed.
Does it sound cool? Well, just think about the opportunities what it can provide. In this presentation you will learn the Edge Cloud's concept, opportunities, hardware needs and operation challenges.
