What about in terms of public cloud vendors?

So the last bucket of edge players are the many public cloud vendors, without going into names, who have realized that edge is going to be a big point of presence and they need a story around it. They have one, but it reflects their thinking that the public cloud is the center of gravity. Our thinking is the reverse. We think the edge is going to be so important that you need to treat it as a first-class engineering problem, not just as a secondary thing you do among many other things. That is reflective in the depth of services we provide on the edge and the way we treat security, user management, and multi-tenancy at the edge.

Cloud computing is very popular as we’re seeing the rise of things like SaaS and PaaS type of software models in the cloud. It makes it very convenient for people to create applications in the cloud. So we need to make it equally, if not more convenient, for people to create applications on the edge than in the cloud. That will require a very good implementation of edge computing stack. From a quality point of view, it should be equal or better quality than the PaaS-type stacks that are already available in cloud. So we’ve been creating an extremely high quality, very rich set of PaaS services on the edge.
