I thought it would be interesting on Christmas eve to compare the two models of distributing presents (content/services). I have put together a short list of features for each model.
Santa (Server/Cloud) has a global approach to delivering presents.
Parents (Edge computing) has a distributed approach to delivering presents.
Both models have their advantages and disadvantages. I think that the best approach is to use both models together. This is the foundation of S+S. Use the richness and power of edge devices such as Windows to leverage the services in the cloud. Just like Santa and parents working together to deliver the best possible experience for the children.
Please leave me your own points in the comments.
