Technology is always moving forward, and the next step for IoT might involve stepping away from the could. The cloud is great, but it doesn't work well for everything. Its downfalls are in security and storage limitations. Edge computing is one solution. "The Edge refers to the place where the IoT connects the cloud and the physical world. If that sounds confusing, just imagine data being processed close to your device, rather than traveling “all the way” to the cloud. The Edge is not just faster; it processes data in real-time." There is never a problem with internet connection in edge computing and security is even tighter.
