Edge computing is a networking philosophy focused on bringing computing as close to the source of data as possible in order to reduce latency and bandwidth use. In simpler terms, edge computing means running fewer processes in the cloud and moving those processes to local places, such as on a user’s computer, an IoT device, or an edge server. Bringing computation to the network’s edge minimizes the amount of long-distance communication that has to happen between a machine and server.
Capturing and visualizing critical data at the remote edge of the network can be difficult and expensive. Prusight Edge computing is a line of lightweight, limited, low-cost Prusight software solutions designed specifically for embedding into field and OEM devices at the edge of the network. With Prusight Edge, edge computing is easier and more affordable than ever, so you can extend your data collection, visualization, and system management all the way to the edge of your network.
