TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 19, 2021 — David Egts, senior director and chief technologist of Red Hat‘s North American public sector business, indicated during a question-and-answer session with ExecutiveBiz the use of edge computing devices and an open hybrid cloud approach could help agencies address data management challenges.
“Edge devices are meant to provide near real-time information about whatever might be happening where that edge device is located.”
Egts said a hybrid cloud platform that is built on an open-source substrate allows users to manage devices and move workloads at the edge.
“Basically, an open hybrid cloud gives you a single, standardized infrastructure that always stays the same so that everything else can be different.”
