EDGE Circle

Put Apps at the Edge

Reduce Friction Across Web Apps

From shopping carts to banking portals, applications handle thousands, even millions, of concurrent interactions.

Whether the interaction is system to system or user facing, it needs to be instantaneous to avoid operational setbacks and poor customer experience.

Moving processing, compute and storage closer to end-users can unlock fast, efficient, and reliable application delivery.
