What does 'Edge' mean to you?

At this point, I think everyone knows what Edge means, but few know of actual edge use cases. 

How would you describe Edge technology in layman's terms? 

For instance, Chick Fil A deploys Kubernetes at the Edge to run its internet-independent applications. Many people have had Chick Fil A or at least been through a drive-thru or two in their day!  

What are some everyday use cases of it that people may not think about?

I didn't think about video and music streaming! I know edge and the automotive industry have a very close relationship these days! People probably don't think about that. But 'smart homes' are definitely a use case most people can probably understand but are unaware of.

I do know IoT in healthcare is a major edge use case. Do you work closely with helping your MSO customers manage all their data?

Edge to me means deploying workloads as close as possible to where the data is generated to reduce latencies and take full advantage of next-generation networking features.

That's super cool. Have you ever written/published about the work you do in a personal blog or LinkedIn? I'd love to help you publish some of your work in Edge through the blog I manage, Enable Architect.
