Open Glossary of Edge Computing

Towards a Common Lexicon

The Open Glossary of Edge Computing seeks to provide a concise collection of terms related to the field of edge computing. The purpose of the glossary is to improve communication and accelerate innovation through a shared vocabulary, offering a vendor-neutral platform with which to discuss compelling solutions offered by edge computing and the next generation Internet.

The Open Glossary is now an official project under the stewardship of The Linux Foundation, which is helping to implement a community-driven process to develop and improve upon this shared lexicon,

The official version of the Open Glossary is available via this GitHub repository. Proposed edits, clarifications and suggestions are made by filing GitHub issues or creating “pull requests.” Each issue, addition or suggested change will be evaluated by the community for inclusion. To contribute to the glossary, refer to our Contributing Guide.
