According to Gartner, by 2025, 75% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside of a traditional centralized data center or cloud. This means data will come from everywhere, with applications—and users—geographically distributed.
Is your enterprise prepared for this new data environment?
Edge computing distributes computation and data storage closer to where the data is produced and consumed. New edge applications exploit devices and network gateways to perform tasks and provide services locally on behalf of the cloud—with the most powerful edge applications being stateful.
However, stateful edge applications demand a new data architecture that considers the scale, latency, availability, and security needs of applications.
In this white paper, we explore the issues, challenges, and opportunities created when you build stateful applications at the edge.
