What is Edge Computing?

Edge computing can be referred to as a concept that tries to place computing as near to the data source as possible so that both bandwidth use and latency are minimized. In layman’s terms, edge computing involves running fewer processes in the cloud and relocating them to local locations, which could include a user’s computer, an edge server, or an IoT device. By bringing computing to the edge of a network, the quantity of long-distance transmission between a client and a server is significantly reduced.
