DOP 170: Running Containers at the Edge

#170: Containers are one of the quickest ways we can move away from a traditional server-centric architecture, as they allow us to host software "in the cloud" without over-provisioning resources or managing infrastructure like we did with virtual machines.

 

What do you think about when you hear edge computing? Is it CDN, serverless functions, or something else? All of these definitions can be heavily related to the concept of edge computing. The term itself is ambiguous and hard to grasp.

 

But what happens when you try to run containers at the edge? In this episode, we speak with Dan Bartholomew, Co-Founder & CTO at Section, about how running containers at the edge is much more than deciding what city to run your container in.
