Extending Cloud to Edge with 5G and AWS Outposts

14. July 2021

High-performance edge applications often need the cloud for processing, analytics, storage, and machine learning. They also need to do some processing close to the location where data is generated to deliver intelligent real-time responsiveness, and reduce the amount of data transferred.

See how AWS Outposts helps to move the necessary soft-and hardware to the Edge locations and what roles 5G technology and the right datacenter need to play to make the setup a success.

Three experts highlight what AWS Outposts has to offer, what technical challenges need to be tackled and what role colocation plays in a successful distributed setup.

How the next killer-apps will be Cloud, Edge and 5G together 

As network access becomes more important and we see "always-connected" devices to the cloud, the demand for distributed infrastructure and configuration network access will be key enablers to developer to engineer the next generation killer-apps or super apps! Learn how AWS Cloud, Outpost, Direct Connect and 5G network features are instrumental in realising such cloud-native applications.

Location Matters – Benefits of Deploying Cloud to Edge in Colocation Data Centers

As distributed computing and hybrid cloud deployments are fast becoming the norm, the importance of interconnectivity to cloud and edge is becoming increasingly important for most organisations. Learn how colocation data centers are enabling hybrid multi-cloud architectures and why organisations should consider migration from on-prem data centers to a combination of cloud + colocation now.
