The Next Internet: A Ubiquitous, Viral Edge Cloud

Moving computation and services from the desktop and local back office to large, centralized, multi-tenant data centers ("The Cloud") has been the dominant trend of the last decade in computing. This has led to a vast profusion of new applications and services and broad new areas of research, from networking to building highly-scalable, robust, distributed systems.

Microsoft Azure has been particularly aggressive about building large-scale data centers, but even Azure cannot guarantee better than 30 ms latency. Further, Cloud-edge bandwidth is limited, and for many Cloud applications and services, the dominant cost is not Cloud computing and storage but rather Cloud-edge bandwidth.
