As latency bounds go down, the number of locations goes up. But how many edges will it take to cover the planet … with a low-latency network?
When I described the Programmable Edge concept to my father, a career scientist with deep research and teaching experience, he said, “Light can circle the Earth 7 times in a second, how much difference does even a thousand miles really make?” It’s a great question.
The Programmable Edge automatically runs workloads in locations near enough to your users to address speed and scale – and avoiding as many operational headaches as possible.
