Bringing data to the Edge
For developers, having the data where it is needed is a non-trivial challenge. Mobile, IoT, and edge computing challenge cloud-centric solutions where data and processing is done centrally. Decentralized computing along with data locality bring back autonomous apps, which don’t depend but coexist symbiotically with the cloud. This does not only reduce cloud costs, but also increases security by reducing the amount of data shared with central instances. Can blockchain be part of the solution? These are typical topics we face at ObjectBox that we would like to share with the audience.
