Open Horizon is a platform for managing the service software lifecycle of containerized workloads and related machine learning assets. It enables autonomous management of applications deployed to distributed webscale fleets of edge computing nodes and devices without requiring on-premise administrators.
Edge computing brings computation and data storage closer to where data is created by people, places, and things. Open Horizon simplifies the job of getting the right applications and machine learning onto the right compute devices, and keeps those applications running and updated. It also enables the autonomous management of more than 10,000 edge devices simultaneously – that’s 20 times as many endpoints as in traditional solutions.
With Open Horizon, you have the ability to:
- Add new capabilities to a single-purpose device
- Enable your device to use other services (both nearby and cloud-based) to enhance its existing capabilities
- Automate the hands-free management of workload lifecycle on the device
- Automatically deploy applications to all devices where policies match and an agreement is negotiated
