About This Webinar
In this session, Sam Dillard (Sr PM Edge at InfluxData), will discuss the needs and challenges of edge computing in the context of an edge-cloud topology. While cloud analytics is emphasized in a lot of the world, the need for edge analytics is not shrinking but rather growing. Applications have become more distributed and the data pertaining to them have become more voluminous.
Sam will discuss InfluxDB’s Edge Data Replication feature that leverages existing edge analytical capabilities of the database in order to enable edge-cloud data pipelines that fit to any business needs and constraints.
This feature automatically streams data on-write from an edge dataset to a cloud one of the user’s choosing. Adding to this automatic replication of writes, is a durability designed to withstand network outages. This feature lays the groundwork for a much larger story about how the edge and cloud can work together to produce global time series data architectures!
