FutureIoT: Linux Foundation leads work on open source framework for edge computing

By | In the News

The Linux Foundation has announced the launch of LF Edge, an umbrella organization that will work to establish an open, interoperable framework for edge computing independent of hardware, silicon, cloud, or operating system.

Arpit Joshipura, general manager, The Linux Foundation, said in a media statement that more than 60 global organizations were backing the initiative at launch.

“This massive endorsement, combined with existing code and project contributions like Akraino from AT&T and EdgeX Foundry from Dell EMC, means LF Edge is well-positioned to transform edge and IoT (internet of things) application development,” he said in a media statement.

The market opportunity for LF Edge spans industrial, enterprise and consumer use cases in complex environments that cut across multiple edges and domains, Joshipura said.

LF Edge includes Akraino Edge Stack, EdgeX Foundry, and Open Glossary of Edge Computing, formerly stand-alone projects at The Linux Foundation.

Automation.com: Inside Dell’s Ongoing Quest for Digitalization Acceleration

By | In the News

Last year, Bill Lyndon explored Dell Technologies quest to accelerate IoT focus to the edge. Bill recently returned to the folks at Dell to follow up on this mission. Speaking with Jason Shepherd, Dell’s IoT and Edge Computing CTO, he shared how they are helping customers accelerate digitalization through the application of IoT to improve business performance. Through numerous discussions and presentations over the last few years, Dell Technologies has clearly aligned itself to provide industry with solutions that span from computing at the network edge to cloud services. Further, this commitment to build this vision comes straight from the top:

“IoT is fundamentally changing how we live, how organizations operate and how the world works. Dell Technologies is leading the way for our customers with a new distributed computing architecture that brings IoT and artificial intelligence together in one, interdependent ecosystem from the edge to the core to the cloud. The implications for our global society will be nothing short of profound.” Michael Dell, Chairman & CEO
