Improving Global Digital User Experience through Its Robust Edge Cloud Services: Zenlayer


For organizations looking to break beyond the limitations that traditional cloud-based networks impose, edge computing can make all the difference. Although cloud computing continues to play an important role in modern network architecture, the exciting possibilities offered by Internet of Things (IoT) devices, which are capable of processing the data they gather closer to the source, are forcing companies to rethink their approach to IT infrastructure. Often touted as the “next big thing,” edge computing differs from more traditional data processing solutions. Edge computing not only has the ability to deliver a direct on-ramp to a company’s preferred cloud platform, but it also can help achieve flexibility and nimbleness when it comes to ensuring a streamlined, efficient IT infrastructure.
