The edge is where the physical meets the digital—where real-time data is received, processed, generated, consumed, and transferred between applications and users or systems. With more applications moving to the cloud at breakneck speeds, it’s become increasingly important to improve performance and reduce operational costs—this can be done when solutions are located at the edge.
Traditional IT infrastructure had centralized resources in data centers that required data exchanged at the edge to travel to the core for processing. Latency and bandwidth are the main problems that arise with this approach, especially when managing large amounts of data. Edge infrastructure can alleviate these obstacles by distributing computing and storage resources closer to the micro, metro, and macro edge locations where data is generated and consumed.
Seagate provides edge storage solutions that put you in control of how and when to store and analyze data—where it’s created and consumed—in order to deliver fast, simple, secure, and streamlined data workflow, accelerating time to insight.
Overcome the barriers of data gravity—store your data closer to their sources at the edge to reduce latency and the cost of bandwidth.
