Is the edge the new cloud in how the cloud created brand new markets and use cases?

The opportunity at the edge is exactly like the cloud. It’s sort of a new cloud in the making if you think about it. So much as the cloud created an immense amount of opportunity, but it was all about remote computing, taking things to the cloud and it gets computed somewhere. The edge is literally closer to home. We now have a much better way to create, deliver and consume services from the edge. We look at the edge as a massive growth opportunity for VMware and our partners as customers start to build and consume more and more applications and data that will all be delivered from the edge.

For example, as more and more video conferencing becomes the norm of the day, the networks are being stressed and stretched to provide bandwidth and capacity. Now imagine thinking about it as turbocharging that with 5G as well as having a real edge from which you can go in and connect to in order to conference. That will tremendously improve the quality of the conversation. You could do it in 3D or with 5,000 people – all of that should be possible with the snap of your fingers.
