We are committed to our people, dedicated to our customers and passionate about being the very best we can be.” The adoption of cloud computing is still growing as more and more businesses migrate to a cloud- based solution, however Stuart explains that it’s no longer the emerging technology it once was. As the quantity of data people deal with continues to increase, the shortcomings of cloud computing in some situations have been realised. Instead, edge computing is designed to help solve some of those problems as a way to bypass the latency caused by cloud computing and getting data to a data centre for processing. “It can exist ‘on the edge’, if you will, closer to where computing needs to happen. For this reason, edge computing can be used to process time- sensitive data in remote locations with limited or no connectivity to a centralised location. In those situations, edge computing can act like mini datacentres. Edge computing will increase as the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices increases.” There has also been a huge increase in working from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic however Kuiper has long being promoting remote working and the solutions it provides.
