The Cloud is great, but it is not a great solution for everything. With cloud resources seeming endless, efficiency took the backseat… while energy consumption, other externalities, and plain monetory costs kept growing.
That’s the short answer to why I wrote this article (and co-founded ObjectBox).
To truly enable the megashift towards decentralized Edge Computing, I believe we need core edge technologies as I am describing, but really what’s behind that is a plea for efficient and thus sustainable code / solutions / computing / architectures… mabye I should write on that next? BTW: efficient solutions also are so much more elegant and beautiful (and cause less headache)
