Near-Real-Time Application Environments

Within the next decade, there could be as many as 50 billion devices online generating enormous amounts of data. Edge computing is closely tied to the Internet of Things and 5G connectivity. As virtual reality and extended reality become popular, more processes will be pushed onto headsets. For example, Amazon IoT Greengrass, the company’s platform for extending Amazon Web Services to edge devices, was created to more easily deploy applications. In October 2019 at Microsoft’s Government Leaders Summit, CEO Satya Nadella said that future application environments would exist at the edge first, then be transferred to the cloud for machine learning.
