New Release: The Gorilla Guide To…® Object Storage at the Edge, Express Edition!
Edge computing has a simple goal: to bring computing as close to the end user as possible. But although the goal is simple, getting there is anything but. Edge brings a whole new set of requirements with it, and they require re-thinking your architecture. In the words of Master Yoda, “You must unlearn what you have learned.”
Some of the biggest challenges with an efficient edge design include performance, storage, and replication. Storage can be an especially thorny problem, and the industry has moved toward object storage and lambda architecture (see Figure 1) in particular to deal with it.
The Gorilla Guide To… Object Storage at the Edge, Express Edition! focuses on object storage because of its contribution to faster processing, which is the whole raison d’être for edge computing. Author Joey D’Antoni surveys such topics as how to effectively measure storage performance, how to allow both real time response to incidents and long-range analysis, and how to take replication and multiple (hybrid) storage locations into account.
D’Antoni also introduces Scality ARTESCA, now offered by from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, as an object storage solution supporting edge computing along with the cloud.
