Tazari looks to build on Packet's bare metal cloud model, launching a working edge platform by 2019, and improving on its hardware and software offerings.
The beauty of EdgeX open source software is that companies can “mix-and-match” components.
The program is intended to bring together open source products that can quickly be deployed by service providers.
The expansion is in the form of a new 115,000-square foot building that can support up to 21 megawatts of capacity.
Mode's intelligent routing algorithms give enterprises private network reliability and quality of service that they can then combine with SD-WAN and last-mile internet.
The report includes a glossary of edge computing terms and definitions that is being funneled into The Linux Foundation.
Companies can deploy 2G IoT modules today and upgrade them to NB-IoT or CAT-M when network coverage is more comprehensive.
Network operators that are transitioning to 5G need to manage a significantly greater number of switching routes compared to data center operators.
Antonio Neri says software defined is just a means to deliver a true edge-to-cloud architecture. He says HPE can deliver, but Dell can’t.
HPE also added more software-defined storage to its edge devices. This enables use cases like AI, video analytics, or databases at the edge.
This money will fund what Neri called “intelligent edge” research and development around connectivity, security, edge computing, automation, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
Virtuosys' software relies on containers to support and secure applications. That use is similar to a cloud deployment using VMs for greater efficiency, but uses containers because VMs were considered too "heavy" to work at the edge.
Many of the groups working on edge computing are associated with telco networking. But edge computing is definitely not limited to telco networks.
The platform relies on Canonical's Ubuntu Core OS and Snaps application packaging system.
