Edge Computing vs Cloud Computing

This post was originally published on ZPE Systems

Both edge computing and cloud computing involve moving computational resources – such as CPUs (central processing units), GPUs (graphics processing units), RAM (random access memory), and data storage – out of the centralized, on-premises data center. As such, both represent massive shifts in enterprise network designs and how companies deploy, manage, secure, and use computing resources. Edge and cloud computing also create new opportunities for data processing, which is sorely needed as companies generate more data than ever before, thanks in no small part to an explosion in Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) adoption. By 2025, IoT devices alone are predicted to generate 80 zettabytes of data, much of it decentralized around the edges of the network. AI, machine learning, and other data analytics applications, meanwhile, require vast quantities of data (and highly scalable infrastructure) to provide accurate insights. This guide compares edge computing vs cloud computing to help organizations choose the right deployment model for their use case.

Defining edge computing vs cloud computing

Edge computing involves deploying computing capabilities to the network’s edges to enable on-site data processing for Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, operational technology (OT), automated
