4 Changes Edge Computing Field Will Undergo in 2020

  • With the rapid development of Kubernetes-based cloud native technology in recent years, great strides have been made in its application scope, application scenarios, and technical maturity. One of its core advantages is to provide consistent functions and experience in the cloud and any other infrastructure through unified standards. By combining cloud native technology with edge computing, you can quickly distribute applications that achieve cloud-edge-terminal integration. This provides a solution for unified large-scale application delivery, maintenance, and control on a large number of edge and terminal devices.
  • In terms of security, cloud native technology can provide more secure workload operating environments, such as containers, as well as throttling and network policies, which can effectively improve the security of edge services and edge data.
  • In an edge network environment, edge container capabilities based on cloud native technology can ensure the autonomy of weak and disconnected networks and provide effective self-recovery capabilities. This solution is also compatible with complex network access environments.
  • With the support of the powerful communities and vendors in the cloud native field, cloud native technology is becoming more applicable to heterogeneous resources. In the IoT field, cloud native technology already supports a variety of CPU architectures and communication protocols, with low resource consumption.
