Edge Computing with Docker Enterprise | Docker

80

The Internet of Things (IoT) is pushing more computing to the edge – where data from devices can be aggregated, filtered, and analyzed before it’s sent somewhere else. As edge devices become more powerful and capable of running sophisticated applications, the edge servers have to keep pace with development. The challenge for edge computing is that these servers and devices are distributed geographically across many sites and sometimes inaccessible. The Docker platform is designed for distributed computing and provides an easy way to securely distribute and run applications at the edge.

In this session, we will outline some of the major trends around edge computing and the common architectures and use cases across different industries. We will highlight some of the work we’re doing with our customers to deliver on these edge use cases and where Docker is headed.
