Edge Empowerment in the Distributed Cloud

Public cloud services are made available to clients at multiple physical locations outside the cloud provider's facilities, sometimes known as satellite sites, in a distributed cloud. The public cloud provider oversees the services' operation, governance, and upgrades. The breadth of cloud use cases is extended all the way to the edge with distributed cloud computing. As a result, a company that uses dispersed cloud computing may store and process data in many data centers that may be physically situated in different faraway regions.

To put it another way, public cloud computing allows you to run public cloud infrastructure in multiple locations — not just on your cloud provider's infrastructure but also on-premises, in the data centers of other cloud providers, and in third-party data centers or colocation centers — and handle everything with a single control plane.

What makes distributed cloud appealing is the promise of controlling everything from a single control plane. A distributed cloud solution relies on remote locations, a single control plane, and a secure network tunnel.

Distributed Cloud Use Cases

Many use scenarios may be imagined, but we highlight two in this section that we believe are rather unique given the complementary nature of distributed cloud and edge computing.

Meeting Industry or Local Data Residency Standards

Many sectors and nations have legislation stating that a person's personal information can't leave their region/country, often known as data sovereignty. A distributed cloud architecture allows an organization to process PI in the user's country of residence more easily. This is particularly important in regulated areas such as healthcare, as well as in many European nations.

Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC)

Communications service providers have been seeking ways to monetize 5G by offering improved multi-access edge solutions. Distributed cloud architecture supports this by allowing CSPs to provide their clients with single tenancy in Satellite locations while also bringing computing power and MEC services to those sites. As a result, data security concerns may be addressed while offering edge applications that need minimal latency. To summarize, the telecom operator provides MEC services over its 5G network and a distributed cloud.
