What About Cloud?

Some have proclaimed cloud computing is the final computing model -- like that's it, we're done. But no, we're not done innovating. Because the new breed of apps that require real-time response will drive a huge move back to a distributed model. And the app may not be running on a PC or a phone -- it could be an autonomous delivery drone, a self-driving car, a lightbulb, or an industrial robot. … We're going to need a highly distributed computing model at the edge, for data triage and machine-to-machine instant messaging. And we're innovating a network of embedded sensors, servers and edge gateways that can perform basic computing functions and ease network traffic.

We'll also need a layer of computing power that is near the edge. And we call this the distributed core. This is a new generation of localized, hyper-converged infrastructure that will handle real events in real time. And this emerging highly distributed compute model is the basis of our Internet of Things strategy. In fact, we believe there will be an order of magnitude more data at the edge in the distributed core than in the cloud. And there'll be plenty of local processing power out on the edge too. That said, the cloud remains extremely important for AI, deep learning and analytics. And it's where we can process all kinds of disparate and unstructured data.
