Edge Computing

Rajasekhar Rao*

Edge computing is a distributed computing paradigm that brings data storage and computation closer to data sources. Edge computing is a topology- and location-sensitive form of distributed computing; the term refers to architecture rather than a specific technology. It was created in the late 1990s to serve video and web content, its origin lies in content delivery networks. In the early 2000s, these networks evolved to host applications and application components at the edge servers,[5] resulting in the first commercial edge computing services that hosted applications such as dealer locators, shopping carts, realtime data aggregators, and ad insertion engines.
