CRN: EdgeX Foundry: How Dell Is Helping Accelerate Time-To-Market For IoT Devices

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

Solution providers delivering Internet of Things solutions at the edge face a time-consuming process because of the plethora of device standards. But a new open-source consortium has emerged that aims to align market leaders around a common Internet of Things framework.

The Linux Foundation in April lifted the curtain on EdgeX Foundry to accelerate interoperability in IoT edge computing. Dell has contributed its Project FUSE source code under Apache 2.0 for the initiative.

InfoQ: Linux Foundation EdgeX Foundry to Enable Edge Computing for IoT

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

The Linux Foundation has launched the EdgeX Foundry, a new project aimed at building an open framework for IoT computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components.

The EdgeX Foundry aims to foster the model of edge computing, where enabled devices will not send their data back to the cloud for processing, but rely on local gateway devices for computing and analytics. The main advantages of this approach are reduced latency and network traffic, and improved security. This is considered of special value for industrial applications, such as power generation, smart traffic lights, etc where a cloud component is not strictly required; or, for more general applications where data from a number of devices is collected locally before sending it to the cloud.

Embedded Computing Design: EdgeX Foundry Joins Industry-Wide Push for IoT Interoperability

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

In an effort to turn this paradigm on its head for the IoT, The Linux Foundation, with support from 50 companies, launched EdgeX Foundry, an open source initiative focused on improving interoperability through a hardware- and operating system-agnostic edge software platform. The foundation of the software platform is based on Dell FUSE middleware, a code base made available under the Apache 2.0 license that enables a set of loosely coupled, plug-and-play EdgeX Foundry microservices that are compatible with programs developed in any language or application environment through a set of common APIs.

InfoWorld: EdgeX Foundry is the solution the IoT world desperately needs

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

IoT (internet of things) is playing a very critical role in the industrial and enterprise space. It’s being used by shipping companies track containers. It’s being used in massive warehouses for better usage of space. It’s being used in factories, construction sites and mines to improve safety of workers. There are so many use cases.

It’s gradually maturing in the consumer space also, though it’s largely plagued by security concerns for various reasons, mainly by the lack of a business model.

Pund-IT: Dell, The Linux Foundation and EdgeX Foundry – Reducing the Complexity and Cost of IoT Development

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

The Internet of Things (IoT) has been the subject of such attention, so much opinionating and so many remarkable claims of progress that it would be natural to assume that IoT is wheels up, rapidly gaining altitude and heading toward a future of eternal sunshine. That is, in a word, foolishness.

Though it is true that numerous IT vendors and their customers have successfully implemented IoT solutions and infrastructures, many of those were one-off efforts that required substantial effort, time and customization. Those aren’t bad things necessarily but if IoT is ever to achieve the kind of global acceptance and success that proponents envision, it needs to become more simple, standardized, certain and cost-effective.

That’s why The Linux Foundation’s announcement of its new EdgeX Foundry project is so intriguing.
