The year of edge computing?

After covering edge computing a year ago―including Red Hat's approach to it―we’ve decided to review this emerging technology in more detail. As TechRepublic reported, Forrester predicts “2021 will be the year [edge computing] graduates from experiment to practically applicable tech, driven largely by AI [artificial intelligence] and 5G.”

This issue of Red Hat Shares includes information on edge and the Internet of Things (IoT), edge and 5G, and problems edge computing can help solve for enterprises. Red Hat CTO Chris Wright also explores edge computing in his fun Technically Speaking video series. Plus, don’t miss our annual report on The State of Enterprise Open Source.
