This article will explore the edge, how it relates to performance-sensitive devices such as IoT devices, and how Apache Pulsar can get you closer to the edge. But first, you need to understand what — and where — the edge is.
This article explains how performance-sensitive IoT applications can improve their performance with event streaming at the edge using Apache Pulsar.
IoT devices are expected to number in the billions, each device enabled by one or more sensors, generating data about the device and its surrounding environment. Analyzing this data using machine learning (ML)/Artificial Intelligence (AI) models, for example, frequently requires transferring this data to the cloud.
