As several companies are evaluating edge computing projects, deployments will soar next year in Latin America, also boosted by 5G, according to a Red Hat executive.

At a press conference, Adrián Cambareri, RHEL operating system manager, said in response to a question from BNamericas that companies have adopted hybrid cloud and are using more than one public cloud operator, but that most of them are still in an edge computing evaluation phase.

“The edge is emerging globally. Latin America is always a little behind, but what we saw with the pandemic is that the adoption cycles accelerated,” he added.

“5G is going to enable the possibility of bringing computing closer to where data is produced,” Alejandro Dirgan, part of Red Hat’s group of hybrid cloud specialists, said.

Brazil’s TIM was operating over 40 edge datacenters in February and plans to operate over 70, of which 55 will be edge units, in 51 locations by the end of 2025.

Embratel (América Móvil) aims to have 12 edge datacenters active in Brazil by the end of this year, while AWS is rolling out distributed infrastructure and announced new cloud zones in six Latin American cities through 2023.

Red Hat recently introduced its new version of its Linux-based RHEL operating system, used by 89% of Fortune 500 firms.

The new version enables wide availability and deployment options in major cloud marketplaces, including AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. In addition, it is possible to integrate it with edge computing systems.

Last year, Red Hat’s Latin America technology director, Thiago Araki, said RHEL had been made lighter so that it can be executed at the edge of the network.

According to company figures, the edge computing market could reach US$250bn by 2025.

Red Hat expects significant sales growth for RHEL this year, following the increase in technology investments due to the pandemic.
