The "Edge" is a new kind of vertical cloud

In the article "the rebundling of Craigslist", Josh Breilinger, a VC at Jackson Square ventures, makes a powerful argument that one of the most effective forms of competition comes in the form of newcos who aspire to take chunks out of an existing platform by better addressing the needs of a specific vertical within that platform

Macrometa & AWS Lambda - geo distributed stateful data for serverless functions - a Step by Step guide

At some point in the last 12 months, something historic happened quietly and right under everyones' noses. Without much fanfare, the center of gravity for cloud computing moved from the centralized databases and compute in giant hyper-scale data-centers to the edge of the network where CDNs live.  This tectonic shift changes the way you (dear developer) will build applications, APIs and all ...

The Great Shift - Edge Computing & Fast Data Processing

The cloud is going through a great tectonic shift. Put simply, we're now entering a new phase of the cloud where the main assumptions underlying its architecture inhibit it from solving emerging problems with data processing. The biggest shift in how we create data and use it is happening hidden in plain sight. The shift is from seeing and using data like its a historical record (seeing the world ...

Macrometa exits stealth with a planet scaling Serverless EDGE cloud

We are told that low latency and imagination are the only prerequisites for building tomorrow’s edge applications. Tragically, this is an incomplete and false hope. In order for robust, world-changing, enterprise applications to emerge, Macrometa believes we must first solve the very hard problem of bringing stateful data to the edge. Without stateful data, the edge will be doomed to forever ...

Edge Computing is a Distributed Data Problem

We are told that low latency and imagination are the only prerequisites for building tomorrow’s edge applications. Tragically, this is an incomplete and false hope. In order for robust, world-changing edge native applications to emerge, we must first solve the very thorny problem of bringing stateful data to the edge. Without stateful data, the edge will be doomed to forever being nothing more ...

Public cloud is the apex predator of the Internet - CDNs need to evolve to stay alive

CDNs have been an important cornerstone of Internet infrastructure for the past two decades. By storing and serving popular static content (video, pictures, static web code) from close proximity Points Of Presence (POPs) to users around the world, CDNs have made the Internet usable by de-centralizing and distributing some aspects of the highly centralized architecture of the Internet and the ...
