About this talk

Gartner estimates that by 2025, 75% of data will be processed outside of the traditional data centre or cloud. This shift means that technical business leaders need to define their edge computing strategy to stay ahead of the curve. If you are currently working on your edge strategy, or simply are interested in learning about various edge computing technologies, this is an opportunity to hear more about micro clouds. A micro cloud is a new class of infrastructure for on-demand computing at the edge. Micro clouds trade the exponential scalability of public and private clouds for security, privacy, governance, and low-latency, decentralised edge computing environments. Micro clouds differ from IoT, which uses thousands of single machines or sensors to gather data but does not perform computing tasks. Instead, a micro cloud reuses proven cloud primitives but with the unattended, autonomous and clustering features that resolve typical edge computing challenges. In this session, you will learn: 1) What micro clouds are and why they should be a part of your edge strategy. 2) Common micro cloud challenges and how to tackle them. 3) Practical considerations for edge site deployments. 4) Technical features of a micro cloud. 5) How to deploy your own micro cloud.
