We have often written and spoken about the benefits of edge computing in IoT systems and applications. As more companies begin to leverage the edge for IoT data collection and analysis, many have questions around the best tools, technologies, and platforms for implementation.
ZEDEDA has a new offering to help companies in their edge efforts—an open orchestration solution that creates an ecosystem of options to help organizations create scalable and secure edge solutions. In a recent news article, ZEDEDA CEO Said Ouisal stated, “The explosion of IoT data requires more processing closer to the source, and existing solutions simply do not meet the unique needs for orchestrating apps and hardware outside of physically-secure data centers. Our solution enables customers to operationalize secure IoT edge computing at scale and is based on a truly open foundation and backed by the world’s leading open edge ecosystem.”
The open orchestration solution will be particularly beneficial for companies operating in such industries as manufacturing, oil and gas, agriculture, and retail. It includes a built-in app marketplace, so users can deploy custom innovations and other features on demand. Organizations will be able to more easily take advantage of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data ingestion to unlock the value of data at the edge in real time.
Solutions such as these hold great promise for the future of edge computing and the advantages to be gained from smart implementations. We recently shared our own thoughts on the edge in a podcast, and we invite you to take a few minutes to listen. We have a lot of experience in edge design and development and would enjoy discussing how the edge can benefit your business.
