CIO: EdgeX brings open source interoperability to IoT

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

In a ground-breaking development, the Linux Foundation and 50 other companies announced the launch of an open-source Internet of Things (IoT) interoperability framework to standardize and simplify edge computing through the new open-source consortium EdgeX Foundry. IoT hasn’t enjoyed the predicted positive market growth due to lack of conformity and fragmented edge computing development resulting in non-compatibilities of applications and security reservations. Adapting IoT technology to business needs is fraught with difficulties and integration issues due to separate development and discordant systems. The evolution of edge computing, however, provides a standardized framework in which to integrate business applications of significant value-adds or standalone systems.

IT Pro Windows: EdgeX Foundry Promises IoT Security and More

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

In the span of a couple of years, the Internet of Things has gone from being welcomed as an important part of the Internet’s future (and a new market waiting to be harnessed), to being feared as something that might bring the Internet to its knees. It’s become a security mess, and seems to be utilized to advantage more by black hat botnet keepers than by makers of IoT devices.

IoT News: Linux Foundation Aims to Solve IoT Interoperability with EdgeX Foundry Project

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

The IoT remains a segregated mess, but the Linux Foundation is hoping to bring some unification to the landscape with the launch of its new EdgeX Foundry project.

“One of the key factors holding back IoT designs in the enterprise is that there are too many choices to safely and easily implement a system that will provide a return on investment in a reasonable timeframe,” said Mike Krell, Lead IoT Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. “EdgeX Foundry will fundamentally change the market dynamic by allowing enterprise IoT applications to choose from a myriad of best-in-class software, hardware and services providers based on their specific needs.”

Internet of Business: Linux Foundation EdgeX Foundry aims to ‘unpickle’ IoT interoperability

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

Foundries, open computing frameworks, Special Interest Groups (SIGs), industry bodies and coalitions come and go, but if the proliferation, fragmentation and confusion that has beset the growth of cloud computing has taught us anything, it is that even the best-laid plans for interoperability can end up in a bit of a pickle.

Aiming to bring some unification to the still-fragmented IoT landscape this month is the Linux Foundation, with its new EdgeX Foundry open source software project.

LinuxGizmos: Open Source Group Focuses on Industrial IoT Gateway Middleware

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

The Linux Foundation has launched an open source, cross-platform “EdgeX Foundry” project based on Dell’s FUSE for standardizing middleware on IoT gateways.

The new EdgeX Foundry organization will develop modular, cross-platform middleware for industrial IoT edge gateways. Based on a Dell FUSE project, the open source group aims to simplify and standardize industrial IoT edge computing “while still allowing the ecosystem to add significant value,” says the Linux Foundation.

SiliconANGLE: EdgeX Foundry Project Aims to Standardize Internet of Things at the Network Edge

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

It’s no secret that security concerns are holding back the Internet of Things, and much of the blame can be placed on a lack of common IoT development standards.

To address this, the Linux Foundation has just announced a new project that aims to create a common, open framework for IoT edge computing. The initiative also seeks to create an ecosystem of interoperable components for use in the IoT.

SDxCentral: New Linux Open Source Group Focuses on IoT and Edge Computing

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

Today, the Linux Foundation launched yet another open source group — this one relating to the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing. The new group is EdgeX Foundry, and its goal is to standardize industrial IoT edge computing.

According to the Linux Foundation, IoT efforts are fragmented, and they need a common IoT framework. In addition, the sheer quantity of data that will be transmitted from IoT devices is driving adoption of edge computing, where connected devices and sensors transmit data to a local gateway device instead of sending it back to the cloud or a central data center.

The Manufacturing Connection: EdgeX Foundry Unifies the IoT Marketplace to Accelerate Enterprise IoT Deployments

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

The Linux Foundation announced launch of EdgeX Foundry, an open source software project to build a common open framework for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components that will unify the marketplace and accelerate enterprise and Industrial IoT. The goal is the simplification and standardization of Industrial IoT edge computing, while still allowing the ecosystem to add significant value.
