In November 2020, Intellias, a trusted software development provider specializing in IoT, cloud, edge computing, and technological innovations critical for organizations’ success today, released its new whitepaper titled “Сloud + Edge: A Powerful Combo for Next-Gen Ecosystems.”
In their study, Intellias analyzes how the combination of edge and cloud computing can amplify IoT applications’ development and define if it’s capable of becoming the next big thing in data processing. The company showcases IoT cloud connectivity’s inefficiencies, predicting cloud-based platforms to lose their positions because of these flaws.
IoT-powered devices generate massive amounts of data each day. This volume is rapidly multiplying and doesn’t seem to be stopping in the upcoming years. Since this ever-growing information quantity requires precise analysis and proper interpretation, organizations need to arm themselves with effective and trustworthy data processing solutions. Cloud services are no longer enough to handle millions of IoT devices — security and latency issues keep showing off when cloud-based platforms try to deal with the wealth of information. Edge technology is considered a reliable alternative to cloud computing and is even predicted to replace a cloud in the next few years.
Intellias offers another option to boost the effectiveness of IoT data management and maximize the use of a cloud. In its whitepaper, the company illustrates which benefits the edge cloud computing combo can bring to the IoT ecosystems. Based on vast experience and real-life cases, Intellias whitepaper isn’t just a theoretical report but a valuable source of proven insights and practical advice.
In this research, Intellias explores three types of cloud computing and its deployment models, explaining the most notable details of the technology. The study also describes:
- importance of cloud computing in the IoT ecosystem;
- key advantages the cloud brings to IoT;
- key disadvantages of the cloud in IoT;
- cloud-related issues and challenges;
- edge computing as an option to fix IoT cloud connectivity;
- driving force behind the synergy of edge cloud computing.
Another significant value of this whitepaper is many practical cloud edge use cases based on Intellias experience and tangible solutions delivered.
