RESEARCH PAPER: A New Ecosystem For A New Era In Compute

We live in a distributed world where APIs and microservices rule the datacenter, and the datacenter is no longer a physical construct; rather, it’s a combination of clouds, edges and remote computing centers that drive the modern business. Cloud computing and edge computing require applications to be more mobile, resilient, manageable and secure, and this need, in turn, led to the emergence of distributed computing. Applications are no longer monolithic; rather, they are comprised of microservices. These applications are deployed across infrastructure – a range of servers and other compute platforms in multiple locations – to achieve those design goals of resiliency, mobility, manageability and security.
