The Edge Paradigm
Edge networking is a distributed computing paradigm which brings data storage and computation as close to the point of need as possible, pushing applications, data and computing power away from centralized data centers.
This reduces the volumes of data that must be moved, the consequent traffic, and the distance the data must travel, providing lower latency and reduced transmission costs.
Owned by everyone
Anyone can contribute to the Edge network, and benefit from its use.
Faster and cheaper
Edge offers improved efficiency and performance, saving up to 90% compared with traditional cloud services.
Edge is built using spare capacity from devices already in the home & office, reducing the carbon footprint of the net.
Truly global reach
Network coverage in 60 countries and counting.
Edge compute units
Like a virtual machine, but hyper localized. The containerised application layer on the Edge enables you to deploy your applications like never before, with a real-time distribution matrix that automatically deploys and scales, based on demand.
Edge dynamically manages the allocation of machine resources, and pricing is based on the actual amount of resources consumed by you app.Find out more
Long-term object storage. Edge storage distributes your files over thousands of devices, providing an unmatched level of security and redundancy. Accessible and addressable by your applications in the network.Find out more
High performance short term storage
Short term object caching. Edge caching acts like a CDN, providing a high performance delivery solution for the offsetting of load. Cached objects follow user demand in real time, delivering within a users local network for the fastest possible response time.Find out more
Edge DNS is just like normal DNS, but faster and with a far greater level of control. Edge DNS is topographically and geographically aware, enabling the direct addressing of the Edge network. And because it is hyper-distributed, it's faster too.Find out more
High performance content delivery with a built in image pipeline and just-in-time media processing. Gets your content closer to your end users than any other CDN.Find out more
Be a part of the Edge
Contribute your spare capacity to the Edge
Anyone with a laptop, mobile or any connected device can earn $EDGE tokens by providing spare computational and storage capacity to the network. $EDGE tokens can be traded for Edge services, or converted into dollars, pounds or euros.Join the waitlist
