Rafay’s partner Edge Gravity by Ericsson, has started a new blog series: Edge Cloud Thought Leadership.We are honored to be part of their inaugural collection of blogs that will focus on new technologies and industry leaders in the edge computing market as way to educate a broad IT audience in the future capabilities at the edge.
Rafay enables the distribution, operations, cross-region scaling and lifecycle management of containerized microservices across public/private clouds and service provider networks.

Creating a network of edges is a much harder problem than it appears. I know because I talk with enterprise and service providers every day about this challenge.
