Fremont, CA: Can you say where the largest or the biggest library of the world is? Searching it online? You are searching for the answer to the question within the answer itself. Yes, the digital library is the biggest library in the world where people would go to access information or media. The internet-connected mobile devices have changed the way people used to connect with others and business about a decade ago.

Every data, every information is stored somewhere in the cloud, which is invisible, untouchable, and volatile in nature. The birth of central cloud providers with an accessible computational resource to host their solutions' backend has solved one of the biggest problem companies faced, i.e., storage devices.

Computing devices, including smartphones, with number of applications running on the device transformed from simple entering and interpretation of information to offer more complex features. These smartphones have changed the people's role from consumers to producers of data and content. Posting social media updates, blogging, connecting wearable, thermostats, and many other sources of data are now produced by general people on the internet.

Today's devices are much more advanced and can perform more complex operations than the ones which were in use just a few years back. Proximity and routes, video overlays, augmented reality, interpreting voice commands, and many more are just a finger-touch away from the consumer. How could a small device like a smartphone perform all this? The answer is Cloud. The applications are built depending on servers in the cloud and perform only a fraction of computing processes.

The present fixed and hierarchical central cloud design cannot proficiently meet the demands of the hyper-connected web. There is a need to realize the opportunity to leverage a massive amount of storage and computing resources at the edge that is used today to run only the clients part of the application. The other significant trend is the disintegration of cloud-hosted applications into server-less microservices.

There is a new way to harness the advantages of the cloud. The current server approach needs sending data from billions of client devices to millions or more centralized cloud servers, which wastes bandwidth and energy and also has negative economic implications. The solution to this can be enabling any computing device to act as a cloud server when feasible. This not only will cut down the costs but also reduce the reliance on any third parties.

Eventually, a dispersed hybrid edge cloud environment will present consumers and enterprises with more control over their data, reduce the cost of cloud hosting, and improve network and application performance.

Decentralization is the next upheaval in cloud computing and an essential element to fuel the fourth industrial revolution without sacrificing our digital freedom.
