In today’s digital age, we are generating more data than ever before. And with the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and real-time applications, we need a faster and more efficient way to process this data. That’s where Edge Computing comes in – a revolutionary technology that allows data processing to take place closer to the source, rather than in centralized data centers.
It is estimated that by the end of 2023, a major percentage of new enterprise IT infrastructure will be at the edge. An enterprise that uses edge solutions can process data more efficiently and quickly. It can also fight latency by bringing data storage and computation closer to the sources of data.
And when it comes to unleashing the true potential of Edge Computing, Wipro and Nutanix are leading the charge.
In this blog post, we’ll explore how these two industry giants are working together to create the future of Edge Computing. So, get ready to dive in and discover the exciting possibilities that lie ahead!
The Future of Edge Computing
As we move towards a more connected world, the demand for real-time data processing and analysis will only continue to grow. With Edge Computing, we can expect to see faster response times, reduced latency, and improved security. The ability to process data closer to the source also means that we can reduce the amount of data that needs to be transferred to centralized data centers, which can result in significant cost savings.
To deliver edge services efficiently, companies must use models like secure access service edge (SASE). Since the introduction of the SASE model in 2019, there has been rapid growth in the market.
Like SASE, SDWAN is also an edge-centric solution. While SASE deals with compliance and security, SDWAN focuses on connectivity. Both these technologies must come together to ensure a robust ecosystem.
With Wipro and Nutanix at the forefront of Edge Computing innovation, we can expect to see even more exciting developments in this space in the coming years.
Applications of Edge Computing
By bringing the power of computation closer to the source, we can expect to see a host of new applications and use cases that were previously impossible. From real-time analytics to autonomous vehicles, the possibilities are endless.
Now let us explore some of the most exciting applications of Edge Computing.
- Autonomous Vehicles
Autonomous vehicles are a huge step forward toward making transportation seamless and perfect. However, these vehicles cannot afford to transmit data to the cloud as they must make instant decisions. Hence, enterprises that use edge solutions will be pioneers in producing autonomous vehicles. This is because edge computing enables real-time processing and analysis of large amounts of data, which is essential for enabling the safe and efficient operation of autonomous vehicles.
By leveraging edge solutions, enterprises can reduce latency, improve response times, and ensure the reliability of their autonomous systems. Additionally, edge solutions can facilitate the communication and coordination between different components of an autonomous vehicle, including sensors, processors, and actuators.
All of these factors combine to make enterprises that use edge solutions critical players in the development of autonomous vehicles.
- Smart Cities
Edge computing will help in building smart cities with automated houses and automated public and private spaces. Smart cities will be equipped with better security and surveillance; edge computing will play a vital role in designing smart burglar alarms and CCTVs.
- Space Imagery
Edge computing can also help in building edge devices that can be onboard satellites and space stations. The photos taken by space stations and satellites can be analyzed instantly by edge devices. This will save a lot of money as space imagery is an expensive and resource-intensive process.
nBLUE – A Futuristic Edge Solution
Understanding the importance of edge computing, Wipro has joined hands with Nutanix to come up with a futuristic edge solution called nBLUE. A fully managed Edge-as-a-Service, nBLUE was developed to tackle the challenges faced by businesses while dealing with edge computing.
What makes nBLUE stand out is the fact that it was built with an architectural framework on Wipro BoundaryLess Universal Edge. Thanks to Wipro’s collaboration with Nutanix, nBLUE’s architectural framework has been tightly integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure and Wipro ServiceTheatre. The result will serve to deliver modern and traditional applications through CaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and DBaaS at the edge.
nBLUE can help businesses manage splintered edge locations spread across the world in a controlled manner. It is also available in a pay-as-you-go model, best suited for businesses that seek control over their financial risk.
Wipro’s Partnership with HPE to Produce Best-in-class nBLUE
Wipro’s hardware partner Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) delivers flexible nBLUE to ensure best-in-class value delivery. The global partnership between Nutanix and HPE leverages HPE GreenLake to come up with a fully managed solution that accelerates operational productivity and lowers the total cost of ownership.
Wipro’s strategic relationship with HPE spans more than 25 years. While Wipro offers flexible financial models, HPE aims at delivering IT-as-a-Service.
With the development of technology, edge computing is likely to be used widely in the near future. This is where edge computing solutions like nBLUE will play an important role in making the future look seamless. The solution promises to bring a cloud-like experience to the edge to ensure coordination at the granular level between people, businesses, and technology.
