Navigating the Edge: How Cloud-Edge Devices Operate

This event will be available live at SEMI, as well as over Zoom. Get to SEMI by 6:30pm to network – and enjoy great pizza and refreshments! All attendees MUST register using the Eventbrite form (see link).

As the digital world becomes increasingly data-centric, cloud-edge devices are playing a pivotal role in reshaping how large volumes of data are processed near their source. Cloud-edge devices are at the forefront of a shift towards decentralized computing, and enhancing the efficiency of Internet-of-Things (IOT) and similar use cases.

This talk will provide an overview of the architecture of these cloud-edge devices, and the importance of virtualization to enable their operation in a myriad of industries and environments that are reliant on real-time data processing and decision-making. How these capabilities are supported in Oracle’s Roving Edge Infrastructure will be explained, including showing the ability to operate on data sets in computing environments which are isolated, i.e., on the edge. The net effect is an improvement in resource utilization, security, and adaptability.

This talk will also touch upon the broader transformative implications of edge computing, exploring how these advancements could shape future trends in the digital infrastructure landscape.
