The cloud offers near infinite storage and compute power, but processing on site can still add value in many scenarios. Moving services typically run in the cloud such as machine learning, video/picture analysis, and stream analytics to a well site, plant, or substation can have significant benefits. Recent advancements in “edge” computing can provide tight control loops with machinery and provide new options for locations with spotty or limited network coverage. This talk will discuss some of these new on-site technologies and the challenges in administrating them.
