AI and IoT workloads are increasingly being deployed at the edge for reasons including reducing latency and network bandwidth consumption and ensuring autonomy, security and privacy. To address the associated challenges at scale, technology providers should focus on open infrastructure, orchestration and security tools, with necessarily unique hardware, software and services applied.

The Importance of Orchestration to Accelerate AI and IoT at the Edge

In a perfect world we’d just run the bulk of AI and IoT workloads in the cloud where compute is centralized and readily scalable, however the benefits of centralization must…

Ever read about a new technology paradigm that sounds amazing, but that offers so much capability that you’re afraid to open the door and step inside? I’m pleased to announce that ZEDEDA is rolling out a new developer program that aims to make “entering that door” a more welcoming experience. The program will simplify how developers can evaluate ZEDEDA’s commercial orchestration cloud up front, so there’s no need to re-architect their IoT and edge computing solutions for management and security at scale, once past a proof-of-concept (PoC) stage. …

Today, ZEDEDA announced the support for Kubernetes at the distributed edge. You may be wondering, so what’s new about that? For starters, let’s look at the title of the press release — ZEDEDA Unveils Industry-First Secure Zero Touch Kubernetes Orchestration Solution for the Distributed Edge. Let me explain why it truly is unique for the edge and how it simplifies the deployment of Kubernetes clusters in the field. Let’s rewind a little.

Challenges of Deploying Kubernetes as the Edge

As the number of edge devices grow at a rapid pace, along with the…

I’m excited today to announce ZEDEDA’s most recent funding, a $12.5M strategic round led by new investors Rockwell Automation, Juniper Networks, and EDF North America Ventures. Our existing investors Almaz Capital, Energize Ventures, Lux Capital, and HBAM also joined this round, and we are grateful for their continued support and confidence.

This oversubscribed round provides additional confirmation of what we already knew: edge computing is a critical part of the digital transformation strategy within organizations. In fact, edge computing will transform these organizations.

Why do I believe this? As we talk to investors, and…

News of the Verkada hack that breached 150,000 surveillance cameras sent shockwaves through the security world last week. For those of us in the edge computing industry, it simply underscored what we already knew — securing distributed devices is hard. As intelligent systems increasingly expand into the field, we’ll see more and more attacks of this sort if we continue to leverage the same security stance and tools that we’ve used for decades within perimetered locations like data centers and secure telecommunication facilities.

In this article, I will…

Edge computing isn’t a new concept. Forward thinking organizations have been working for the past couple of years to define their edge strategy, realizing the competitive advantage that this can create. And over the past year these efforts have accelerated, driven not just by new technologies but by the pandemic.

The COVID-19 crisis has reverberated around the world, disrupting most, if not all, industries. Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) personnel went from managing more than 365 million desktops within offices in 2019 to supporting more than one billion workers at home. …
