John Fu: A Zenlayer Perspective of Edge Computing
John Fu: A Zenlayer Perspective of Edge Computing

What is edge computing? To visualize, imagine an octopus with many tentacles. Octopuses have a neural ring that circumvents the brain, allowing the tentacles to communicate independently and efficiently perform various functions like eating, without passing information back to a central location.   

Similarly, an edge network is a distributed computing model that avoids routing most data into a central data center. An edge network can analyze data no matter where it originates, and in much less time.

Anycast overview Anycast is a network addressing and routing method that attributes a single IP address to multiple servers in a network. The idea behind anycast is that data is sent to the closest server based on the location of the user request. By doing so, the user can reduce network hops and latency, reducing…
