Bringing cloud computing resources to the edge of the network

In this blog post, the terms “Cloud at the Edge,” “Edge Cloud,” and “Next-Gen Cloud” are used interchangeably. Most of us are familiar with the following cloud computing environments:

  • Private cloud: Access is limited to members of an enterprise and partner networks.
  • Public cloud: Access to standardized resources—like infrastructure, multi-tenant hardware, and services, is available to subscribers on a pay-per-use basis
  • Hybrid cloud: The use of multiple public and private cloud computing services by an enterprise.
  • Multicloud: Enterprise uses a combination of on-premise, private cloud, and public cloud components.

We can now add Cloud at the Edge or Edge Cloud to that list, bringing cloud computing resources to the edge of the network or to where the traffic is.
