All Tech Field Day Podcast

Edge Is Not Just Cloud or Datacenter

Even though most of the technologies and infrastructure elements are the same, the nature of edge comping is entirely different. This episode of On-Premise IT features Edge Field Day delegates Enrico Signoretti, Allyson Klein, and Alastair Cooke discussing these differences with Stephen Foskett. Many edge environments look a lot like the datacenter, with servers, switches, storage, virtualization, and more. Other environments resemble clouds, with Kubernetes, hyper-converged, and containerization. All of these technologies are being deployed in a different way, and they are transformed by being adapted to use at remote locations.
