Why Data at the Edge is Essential for Modern Apps & Workloads | Part One

Building tomorrow’s applications on the centralised cloud is fraught with difficulties. In this EM360 podcast, we spoke to Macrometa CEO Chetan Venkatesh and SVP Sales David Cumberworth who argue that for robust, world-changing data driven applications to emerge, we must first solve the very thorny problems of making an edge native cloud that is real-time, geo-distributed, and physically situated no more than 50ms from every human, device, and event in the world. The conventional architectures of cloud systems cannot be extended, hacked, forked, or mutated to realize this new world. A new approach, an edge-native approach, is needed to unlock the promise and potential of data.
