Electronic Design: EdgeX Foundry Delivers Framework for IoT Edge Computing

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

EdgeX Foundry is a vendor-neutral, open source project from the Linux Foundation that provides a common framework for IoT edge computing. The target is industrial IoT, although it can be applied to other IoT applications such as supporting consumer products. It defines a collection of loosely-coupled microservices that communicate via network (Fig. 1) interfaces in a manner similar to other network frameworks like the Robot Operating System (ROS). This allows services to be collected on a single gateway or distributed across a number of nodes based on application requirements.

Connected World: Turning to the Edge, Fog or Cloud?

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

There are several organizations out there that are working toward advancing fog computing by addressing some of the hurdles, as noted earlier.

One great example is EdgeX Foundry, a vendor-neutral open source project that’s building an open framework for IoT edge computing. There is a lot going in fog, edge, and cloud, and there is no shortage of opinions and ideas. It’s certainly educational and, at the very least, worth checking out what they all have to say.

DZone/AIZone: How Open-Source Software Drives IoT and AI

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

One of the most promising emerging developments is the intersection of the IoT and AI. Expect more of this as open source continues to speed development in these exciting technologies.

Twenty years ago, open source was merely a new buzz phrase. Some scoffed at it, many misunderstood it, and only a small subset of people believed it could change the world. Today, open-source software lies at the heart of the most exciting technology developments.

The term may go back to the late ’90s, but open sharing of software source code dates back even further to the ’50s, when mainframe companies shared operating system source code with others. The movement rapidly gathered force with the success of the World Wide Web and now drives a significant portion of the economy. Open-source software has touched everything from word processing applications to databases and has recently enjoyed success in a major growth area: the Internet of Things (IoT). The movement has proven useful in both the development of edge-based IoT equipment and the evolution of back-end analytics systems that make sense of the data.

Arc Web: EdgeX Foundry Previews California Code Release and New Vertical Solutions Working Group Focused on IIoT

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

EdgeX Foundry, an open source project building a common interoperability framework to facilitate an ecosystem for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing, announced early access to some elements of the California code release. Demonstrating performance increases and size reductions, these elements support more efficient microservices and a path toward scalability. The full California release will be available in Summer 2018 and represents a major step in evolving the EdgeX framework to support the developer requirements for deployment in business-critical IIoT applications.

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

Rubicon Labs has joined the Open Source EdgeX Foundry project to unify the IoT market. The EdgeX Foundry is building a common open framework for IoT edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components that unifies the IoT marketplace and accelerates the deployment of IoT solutions. Rubicon Labs provides end-to-end security and control as a cloud service for end-to-end IoT ecosystems and enables device makers to generate revenue by implementing, regulating and updating subscription policies and over-the-air (OTA) updates.

In its first iteration, IoT enabled devices to be connected to the cloud, but the emergence of the “edge” ecosystem has ushered in a new IoT 2.0 era. Designed to run on any hardware or operating system, and with any combination of application environments, the edge ecosystem accelerates time to market and simplifies deployments of secure Industrial and IoT networks.


Linux Foundation Blog: EdgeX Foundry Continues Momentum with ‘California Code’ Preview

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

EdgeX Foundry is still a few months away from its one-year anniversary.  For those unfamiliar, EdgeX Foundry is a vendor-neutral, open source IoT edge computing framework project under The Linux Foundation.  At the heart of EdgeX is a microservice architecture which allows the platform to be distributed, updated, replaced, improved and even provided by commercial third parties for additional value add where it makes sense.  Its goal is to provide an interoperable platform (hardware and OS agnostic) to accelerate the deployment of industrial IoT solutions.

Even before the project’s first birthday, there is plenty to celebrate.

IoT Evolution World: EdgeX Announces California Code Release Preview

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

2018 is looking like a big year for vendor-neutral, open source project, EdgeX Foundry. With evolution in technologies being made within the Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing space, improvements on what is existing is essential. EdgeX Foundry has announced early access to some of the features that will be a part of their California Code release, due for a full release in Summer 2018.

As a follow-up to the Barcelona Code release in October 2017, progress has been made towards considerable performance increases and size reductions, allowing increased efficiency in developing microservices and leading towards advancement in scalability. The California Code release will illustrate momentous progress for the EdgeX framework in supporting the requirements for deployment in IIoT applications essential for businesses to thrive.
