An article by Ashish Sharma. In the era of digital transformation, the 5G network is a leap forward. But frankly, the tall promises of the 5G network are cornering the edge computing technology to democratize data at a granular level.

What oil is to the automobile industry, the cloud is to Information Technology (IT) industry. Cloud revolutionized the tech space by making data available at your fingertips. Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) planted the seed of the cloud somewhere in the early 2000s. Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure followed this. However, the real growth of cloud technology skyrocketed only after 2010-2012.

In this blog, you will read about:

  • A decade defined by the cloud
  • The legend of cloud-native Containers
  • The rise of Container Network Functions (CNFs)
  • Edge computing must reinvent the wheel
  • Kubernetes – powering 5G at the edge
  • KubeEdge – giving an edge to Kubernetes

Gartner quotes: Around 10 percent of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. By 2025, this figure will reach 75 percent.

The advent of cloud-native is a hallmark of evolutionary development in the cloud ecosystem. The fundamental nature of the architecture of cloud-native is the abstraction of multiple layers of the infrastructure. Good read!
