The flood of new 5G data necessitates a change in the way businesses architect their IT systems and manage their infrastructure. The traditional architecture that relied on feeding everything back to a centralized data center is not the best strategy for processing and quickly responding to ever-growing torrents of information.
There are two key factors will help to make 5G live up to its potential. The first is a strategy for processing information at the edge of the network to enable applications that require ultra-low latency to get the performance they need; the second is the adoption of event-driven architecture as a method to reliably share data throughout an entire distributed enterprise that spans edge, cloud and on-premises applications.
For an enterprise to move at today’s speed of business, it must stream data from devices between the applications and microservices that process them so insights can be gleaned and decisions made quickly. To become more responsive and take advantage of new information at the edge, enterprise architecture needs to support real-time, event-driven interactions.
With an event mesh in place, enterprises can easily:
• Ingest events from IoT devices and choose whether to keep them at the edge or send them into the network
• Use multiple public cloud services, from different public cloud providers
• Add, remove and move applications throughout the system, without disruption
• Migrate to the cloud in a stepwise fashion
• Set up robust disaster recovery, taking advantage of multi-cloud architectures
