Cox Communications, based in Georgia, US, has launched Cox EdgeSM, a full stack edge-cloud computing service.
Offering ultra-low latency compute solutions, the service is intended to help customers to improve application performance, and reduce cloud transport and on-premise infrastructure costs.
The shape of the internet is evolving. Increasingly immersive digital experiences require faster application performance and response times to delight consumers. Technologies like Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence drive the need for real-time processing and decision making.
These and other innovations can benefit from bringing compute power closer to the action, according to Cox Communications – to where users are engaging and to where sensor data is being created.
Cox Edge, with last-mile edge locations and a global network, aims to bring compute resources closer to users and businesses. This can help reduce cloud transport costs, improve application resiliency and continuity, reduce latency to deliver near real-time application performance, and provider better overall security.
Sujata Gosalia, executive VP and chief strategy officer, Cox Communications, said: “Across all industries, companies are creating applications and user experiences that require workloads to be processed at the edge to unlock new levels of performance.
“Cox is proud to deliver these powerful services to developers and enterprises as a telecommunications provider, leveraging our network’s proximity to businesses and consumers.”
Cox Edge is a full stack edge-cloud infrastructure service deployed from last-mile edge data centres, with offerings that will include Virtual Compute, Storage, Bare Metal, Edge CDN, Distributed Database services, Serverless computing, Distributed Containers and Enterprise Kubernetes. The services are offered through an integrated user experience, so that developers can augment their cloud or on-premise deployments with edge capabilities.
