EdgeX – Open Source IoT effort hosted by the Linux Foundation

November 27, 2017

Last month at the Cloud Foundry Summit Europe, not only did I attend various sessions, but I got to deliver one myself.  The talk, entitled “EdgeX Foundry – Open Interop Platform for the IoT Edge,” gives a high level overview of the EdgeX Foundry which is an open source effort hosted by the Linux Foundation.  The presentation talks about the IoT roadblocks the Foundry addresses and how they plan to tackle them.

Here is a recording of the talk.  Directly below the video I have put an EdgeX Foundry cheat sheet and further down I have included my slides.

Enjoy!

 

EdgeX Foundry — The basics

Vision: Create a common interoperability framework that enables an ecosystem of plug-and-play, “EdgeX certified” components.

  • A vendor-neutral, open source project hosted by The Linux Foundation — launched in April 2017
  • 125,000 lines of code, 50+ members at launch
  • The result of customer and industry feedback

Goals

  • Build and promote EdgeX as unifying the IoT edge via a common open platform.
  • Enable plug-and-play components to allow solutions providers to create ecosystem of interoperable components around EdgeX platform architecture.
  • Certify components to ensure interoperability and compatibility.
  • Provide tools to quickly create EdgeX-based IoT edge solutions that can easily adapt to changing business needs.
  • Collaborate with relevant open source projects, standards groups, and industry alliances to ensure consistency and interoperability across the IoT.

 

Dell goes big on IoT

Coincidentally the same week as the summit Dell announced our new IoT division and how we plan to spend $1 billion over the next three years.  My talk doesn’t mention the announcement but I have put a few related articles below.

Dell IoT lab: Smart building demo

May 6, 2015

Continuing with the third of four entries focusing on Dell’s Internet of Things lab, today we have a two-part  look at the smart building demo.

In the first clip, Product Technologist, Raja Tamilarasan takes us through a smart building showing how the sensors are attached to Wyse gateway which constantly monitors the data it receives.  Raja also simulates a fire showing how the building would react.

The second video, which continues from the first, shows how by using Dell’s cloud integration software Boomi, you can migrate aggregated info from a thin client back to a server in the data center.

One more

The next video will be the final one in this four part series: Dell’s IoT data center
