The way we power and structure our data infrastructure needs to be rethought from the ground up if we want to avoid an environmental catastrophe. Edge computing is a distributed computing model in which data is processed at the edge of the network, close to the source of the data. This means that instead of sending all data to central servers for processing, only the data that needs to be processed is sent — resulting in lower latency and less energy consumption — by as much as 60 per cent. Edge computing can help to reduce the carbon footprint of data centers by using renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. Edge computing can help organizations save money on energy costs, as well as meet their sustainability goals.
