Coupled with the company's Nanoserver hardware infrastructure, the software edge platform is designed to enable developers to write, test, and deploy their own computing to the near-edge, and to meet the demand for data processing that will serve billions of IoT and industrial IoT devices. The platform, says the company, allows customers to build serverless IoT applications at the near-edge, at ultra-low latencies to IoT devices and connected things, through the EDJX cloud and their own edge infrastructures.
"We designed EDJX's Serverless Edge to meet the needs of real-world, low latency IoT applications," says James Thomason, co-founder and CTO of EDJX. "Our platform is being developed in lock-step with customers and partners across enterprise, industrial, and urban settings."
Components of the public beta launch include:
- EDJX Nanoserver Infrastructure: small form factor, ruggedized, security-hardened servers that can be deployed anywhere indoors or outdoors, in order to bring computing closer to IoT devices to reduce latency and increase the responsiveness of edge applications
- EDJX Serverless Edge: a software platform that enables developers to write, test and deploy serverless IoT applications to Nanoservers deployed at the near-edge to IoT devices and connected things
With the platform, says the company, developers can write, test, and deploy serverless IoT apps with millisecond proximity to IoT sensors and devices, without having to manage containers, virtual machines, or hardware, enabling them to focus on creating IoT applications and high-value business logic without having to worry about cloud bottlenecks or complex orchestration solutions.
