A self-driving car needs to be able to quickly respond to changes in driving conditions. A factory needs to be able to quickly respond to changes in workplace safety. For these kinds of applications, we need processing power closer to the user of the application. If we put all of our application logic in the cloud, we will have to make a network round trip for every request.

Servers in the cloud are powerful, but so are the computers at the edge–smartphones, sensors, drones, cars, and on-prem servers. Edge computing is giving us more computation outside the data center.

Olivier Bloch works on Microsoft Azure IoT Edge, a set of services for edge computing. Azure IoT Edge includes on-prem versions of Microsoft Azure technologies. Tools that were previously accessible only in the cloud can be deployed and hosted on premise.
