2 ways 5G will change cloud computing
5G is coming—a technology that has more misinformation around it than anything I’ve seen before. Much of this bad data is focused on cloud computing.
The reality is that it will take a while to roll out 5G. We need to upgrade our phones, cell towers, network devices, and more, and that won’t happen overnight. Moreover, the dollars it will require won’t be easily extracted from most enterprises.
Of course, there are many predictions about how cloud computing will change in a 5G world, most of which are dead wrong. Tech pundits are calling for 5G to light edge computing on fire and take share away from the public clouds. Both will grow rapidly.
