Distributed Edge Clouds Are Complex, But Must They Be Difficult?

Service providers need to support applications that require extremely low latency and high bandwidth to cloud services, but the traditional, centralized cloud architecture was not designed for that. To grow service revenue and optimize existing services, operators need an edge cloud architecture that distributes cloud resources closer to end users at the edge of the network.

The biggest initial challenge for distributed edge cloud architecture is operational complexity. With distributed edge cloud deployments comprising potentially thousands of geographically dispersed remote nodes, service providers need comprehensive management tools for system-wide orchestration to successfully implement the distributed cloud architecture and deliver new revenue-generating services.
