Reliable Edge Computing systems
Digital processes generate a large amount of data. Often, communication via the cloud is not fast enough and effective enough. Reliable Edge Computing systems are needed to enable system integration and upgrading to Industry 4.0 capability to manage a large number of different interfaces, network different isolated solutions, integrate new application programs and take IT security in systems into account.
For many applications it becomes clear that data collection in the cloud is not the optimal solution. There are currently two competing approaches to data storage and processing: Cloud and Edge Computing. Digital applications, in particular, generate large amounts of data that are usually not actually needed to this extent. In addition, some processes require real-time information so that they can respond quickly to various events. When applications need data on an economical scale immediately and above all securely, it is questionable whether data storage in the cloud is the most suitable solution.
