Edge Computing

What is Edge Computing?

Edge computing describes a physical computing infrastructure, intentionally located outside the four walls of the datacenter, so storage compute resources can be placed where they are needed. Run on a small or tiny hardware footprint, infrastructure at the edge collects, processes and reduces vast quantities of data and can be further uploaded to either a centralized datacenter or the cloud. Edge computing acts as a high performance bridge from local compute to both private and public clouds.

HC3® Edge Use Cases

Edge computing is effective in nearly any type of industry where remote sites exist. These are some of the use cases where edge computing is a frequent need.


With dozens or hundreds of retail locations, retailers need reliable computing across the edges of their networks. HC3 Edge can efficiently run apps required for:

• Cash Registers

• Mobile Technology

• Scales

• Refrigeration / Freezer Systems

• Inventory Management

• Consumer Apps

• Electronic Shelf Labels

• Intelligent Digital (MDS)

Manufacturing and other industrial processes can span across multiple sites with high-tech computing needs for equipment and personnel. Industrial IoT devices like sensors require on-site computing performance.


Banks and other financial institutions have multiple branch office requiring reliable computing to execute rapid, business-critical transactions.


Any remote office or branch office locations at the edge of the network require computing resources that keep productivity online.

Mobile Platforms:

Shipping vessels, ocean liners, offshore platforms, defense, and remote construction have computing needs that can go beyond the edge of most networks. Mobile systems need to be autonomous, not-reliant on stable external networks connections.


Any IoT deployment may require edge computing because direct-to-cloud communication may not be reliable or fast enough to process vast amounts of data or time-sensitive data.
