Edge Cloud

A trending IT and network architecture in which  the cloud (virtual compute and storage resources) is scattered  across multiple sites closer to the edge of the network, where  content is both created and consumed, to meet the expected

Quality of Experience (QoE) of a new generation of cloud-native  applications that are compute-intensive and latency-sensitive.  Traditional centralized cloud architectures will not meet QoE  expectations for these applications and will require a more  dynamic and distributed cloud model. These applications can  be both end-user focused or network driven (such as those  enabling C-RAN virtualization at hub sites).
