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…

Billions of electric pumps keep the world moving every day, across every industry where water, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, beverages, and other liquids are processed and carried as part of manufacturing, service delivery, and more.

Last year, Grand View Research published a comprehensive global study of the industrial pump market, forecasting that the overall size will reach just short of 100 billion dollars by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 5.9% …

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. …

Kubernetes is more than just a buzzword. With Gartner predicting that by the end of 2025, 90% of applications at the edge will be containerized, it’s clear that organizations will be looking to leverage Kubernetes across their enterprises, but this isn’t a straightforward proposition. There’s much more involved than just repurposing the architecture we use in the data center in a smaller or more rugged form factor at the edge.

The edge environment has several major distinctions from data centers that must be addressed in order to successfully leverage Kubernetes:

  • Diversity: Inherent diversity of technology and the…

Today a majority of organizations select Microsoft Azure IoT as their platform of choice to develop applications that extract value from sensor data. This requires that they have tools to be able to efficiently collect, understand, and move relevant data to the Azure IoT platform from a diverse collection of distributed hardware at the edge.

Yet 74% of IoT deployments slow down or stall completely as customers grapple with the complexity of provisioning and managing this edge hardware at scale. Questions such as, “How do I deploy the Azure IoT Edge runtime on all of my devices…

Extending Kubernetes Outside of the Data Center

Join ZEDEDA at the one day conference “Computing on the Edge with Kubernetes” hosted by Rancher on October 21, 2020, centered around everything edge.

By 2021, Gartner forecasts that there will be approximately 25 billion IoT devices in use around the world. Each of those devices has the capacity to produce immense volumes of business-critical data. As the number of use cases for this data expands, the need for lightweight, agile applications to analyze data closer to the source has become apparent.

Edge computing is becoming possible as devices become more powerful and widespread and developers are now looking to…
