CRN highlights 50 companies leading the way in edge computing with hardware, software and services.
The largest hardware and software companies in the world are investing heavily in edge computing as millions of new devices came online in 2023 and more compute power was needed to handle the influx of artificial intelligence technology.
Companies that are being honored on CRN’s 2023 50 Hottest Edge Hardware, Software and Services list are edge market leaders paving the way for innovation and growth that customers are demanding.
This includes server and chip giants like Dell Technologies, Nvidia and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, software leaders Microsoft and Citrix, as well as edge computing specialists such as EdgeConneX and Adapdix that are driving optimization and custom offerings in the market.
Edge computing is a critical component for many businesses’ digital transformation goals, with the technology helping customers drive efficiency and effectiveness, accelerate deployments and avoid sprawl. IT research firm Gartner expects that over 50 percent of enterprise-managed data will be created and processed outside the data center or cloud by 2025.
Interestingly, the edge computing market will also complement cloud computing for nearly every enterprise by 2025, according to a Gartner report. Customers now require a more agile and real-time front office where customers, employees and assets interact with each other and the enterprise, which is spurring edge computing sales.
As seen with some launches by Amazon Web Services and other cloud leaders, edge computing and the Internet of Things is top of mind for many cloud computing companies, which enabled many companies to be honored on CRN’s list.
As part of CRN’s 2023 Edge Computing 100, here are the 50 edge computing software, hardware and services companies that are leading the market this year with no plans on slowing down in 2024.
