Impact of Edge Computing on Cloud Infrastructure- A Review Paper

Ankur Mahida [9]


Abstract: Edge computing is an emerging trend that replaces cloud data centers with the provision of computational and data storage resources to the location where they are required, which is in complete contrast to solely relying on the Cloud. Due to the surge in connected devices and data from IoT, Augmented/virtual reality, and mobile applications, cloud computing needs help to keep up with the demands for huge bandwidth and low latency necessary for processing and analysis in real - time. Edge computing overcomes the challenges by decentralizing micro data centers and cloud services to the edge of the network, thus allowing data to be processed instantly and locally by the data generator. Such closeness allows for overcoming difficulties associated with overflow of capacity and latencies. The ecosystem of the edge, encompassing data centers at the edge, cloudlets, and end devices, works together with the centralized Cloud. The 5G deployment, content delivery, self - driving cars, industrial automation, and smart city infrastructure are some of the principal target domains for edge computing. Through the widespread adoption of edge computing, cloud infrastructure will be more diversified, as the edge will have specialized products. Cloud providers might have to tune their infrastructure for edge edge new needs. The collaboration of the edge, cloudlets, and Cloud will facilitate this, which is only possible with the Cloud. Edge computing is a novelty in the age of cloud computing, setting a new course for the distributed real - time computing paradigm.
