mimik enables all computing devices to act as cloud servers to create a larger, cheaper, and faster cloud with better data privacy.
edge cloud: the next cloud infrastructure
The edge cloud is an extension of central cloud with edge devices acting as cloud servers. Edge cloud servers may include new device types: routers, gateways, mobile devices, or game consoles. Edge cloud enabled applications are able to access “backend” services on local edge servers or servers in central cloud data centers.
mimik edgeSDK provides a lightweight container environment for deploying microservices and turning devices into cloud servers.
