The Limitless Possibilities of IoT and Edge Computing with DataStax Astra

Presented by

Frank Sepulveda, Data Architect at DataStax

About this talk

The internet of things (IoT) already incorporates an estimated 26 billion connected devices, and its growing exponentially. But it has one big challenge: most of these devices depend on centralized data architecture. The rollout of 5G helps, but it doesn’t solve this problem—there will always be places in the world where continuous, reliable connectivity doesn’t exist. Enter edge computing, bringing the storage and compute power out of the center and towards the network’s edge. Gartner estimates that by 2025, 75% of enterprise data will be generated and processed outside traditional core data centers and cloud systems. Join the webinar and learn just how accessible, secure, and cost-effective edge computing can be with a modern distributed database powered by Apache Cassandra. Frank Sepulveda, a geoscientist and Data Architect at DataStax, will show you how he developed an edge-based framework by utilizing commercially available hardware to store and process sensor array data in a field setting. This framework allowed him to overcome real-world performance limiters like bandwidth and power while carrying out remote seismic exploration. Frank will talk about the incredible potential of edge computing with a distributed database, including use cases such as: -Autonomous vehicles -Remote industrial and scientific monitoring -Smart electrical grids -Predictive maintenance of field equipment and vehicles -Remote patient health monitoring -Smart cities and homes
