These micro DCs store, analyze and process the data faster than using a connection to a data centre. With the implementation of an edge cloud, a variety of functions will migrate to it.
Advantages of Edge Cloud
Since the edge is decentralized and located across, any attacks are limited at the edge, which is more secure than traditional network architectures and provides more control over data flow. In addition, if an edge is impacted, other parts of the network continue without any issues during outages elsewhere in the system.
