Defining the Software-Defined Edge

VMware defines the software-defined edge as a distributed digital infrastructure for running workloads across various locations, in close proximity to endpoints that generate or consume data. This concept extends to diverse user and device environments such as offices, roadways, cell sites, and factory floors. The software-defined edge encompasses three critical layers: the edge compute stack, hosting applications and workloads; the intelligent overlay, housing connectivity and security services across the WAN; and the underlay network layer, facilitating network connectivity across fixed and 5G networks for orchestration and network programmability.
