Edge Computing

Out at the edge, data items will get smaller, and tasks will often revolve around local processing of small sets of these small data items together, at high speed, to generate real time status and change-of state monitoring, and reports that are then acted upon locally. These will be performed by small, localised compute resources, increasingly incorporated inside the monitoring devices and/or housed in secure micro data centres. They will run operating systems specifically designed to work with cloud services, utilising applications dynamically loaded via containers and operating systems designed to work across widely distributed domains.
