Deploying applications to the edge isn’t always about providing a path to the cloud. It’s also often about enabling applications to work locally without the cloud.
The edge is a technology deployment paradigm where computing capacity is placed at the edge of the network, which could, for example, be a retail location for a store or a medical office. Loading, processing and analyzing data at edge can in some cases be a faster and more optimized approach than backhauling traffic from the edge up to the cloud. That’s the direction that Linux platform provider Suse is taking with the launch of its Suse Edge 2.0 platform today.
With skilled IT staff at a premium everywhere, a challenge for edge deployments, in particular, is that if a system is too complex, it won’t actually help a business, but could well hinder it.
“Our mission from the product perspective was to solve that complexity and bring simplicity so that customers would not have to focus on that part of the infrastructure, but rather focus on the edge business value,” Keith Basil, general manager of the edge business unit at Suse told VentureBeat.
