EDGE Network Launches to Replace Cloud Computing

By Ken Briodagh July 23, 2019

According to a recent announcement, a new company, the EDGE network, has officially launched. Designed to be a more cost effective and faster replacement to the cloud, edge computing is expected to address the proliferation of data and connected devices over the coming years, the new company said.

EDGE reportedly will remunerate participants for committing their spare internet capacity to the network. Whilst individuals and businesses will be able to monetize their existing connected devices and hardware by joining the EDGE network, businesses can also reduce their IT expenditure as the cost of the EDGE computing network is far cheaper than using centralized and slow cloud computing infrastructure.

“Edge computing will be the answer to the challenges faced by cloud computing as the amount of data and web traffic is set to increase exponentially in the coming years,” said Joseph Denne, CEO and Co-Founder, EDGE. “With EDGE evolving from an already existing business with an established customer base, we see this as the beginning of EDGE network adoption. In the coming months we plan to migrate existing clients to the network, as well as convert an already expansive pipeline of business. At the same time we expect an exponential growth in the number of nodes as more people realize how they can monetize their spare computing capacity just by becoming an EDGE node.”

The EDGE network is already live with 155 founding nodes established in 56 countries, who are earning DADI tokens on a monthly basis for pledging their spare capacity. EDGE is designed as a secure, cost efficient and environmentally friendly blockchain based computing network that aims to revolutionize and ultimately replace cloud computing.

Edge computing works by bringing data storage and computation as close to the point of need as possible, and therefore pushing data, computing power and applications away from centralized clouds and data centers.
