Living on the Edge (2020)

October 26, 2020

Centralised data centres consume a lot of energy, produce a lot of carbon emissions, and cause significant electronic waste. While data centres are seeing a positive trend towards using green energy, an even more sustainable approach is to reduce unnecessary cloud traffic, central computation, and storage as much as possible by shifting computation to the edge. An on-device database, where data can be stored and processed, is a prerequisite for meaningful edge computing. Only relevant data is sent to the server and saved there, reducing the networking traffic and computing power used in data centres, reducing both bandwidth and energy required by data centres.
