How Cloudlets work

Here's how Cloudlets handle incoming requests:
  1. The customer makes a request for content.
  2. The optimal edge server receives an inbound request.
  3. The edge server determines which Cloudlet should handle the request.
  4. The edge server fetches the policies for the given Cloudlet.
  5. The edge server processes metadata logic, generates a response, and sends it to the customer.

Here's a diagram that compares the workflow both with and without Cloudlets:
