MobiledgeX updates platform with edge computing support extension

The Linux Foundation is headquartered in San Francisco

The company’s latest release adds enterprise capabilities, addressing the emerging needs for enterprises that are deploying edge-enabled cloud applications.

MobiledgeX has announced the release of its MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud R2.0 for the enterprise edge, powering private and public edge cloud integration to allow developers to deploy location-specific services.

The company’s Edge-Cloud R2.0 collects edge-processing power across multiple enterprise on-premise and telecom network locations, and presents them through one common interface that application developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) use to design, deploy and manage their applications.

The company mentioned that it enables businesses to manage their digital operation across distributed locations independent of underlying network ownership or systems.

Any containerised or virtualised applications developed in a public cloud that has low latency, offload, location or data ownership requirements can take advantage of the Edge-Cloud R2.0 console to onboard and deploy seamlessly to either and/or both public and private edge locations, according to MobiledgeX.

“Edge Cloud has an exciting potential to enable and enhance many innovative experiences for our customers,” said Claudia Nemat, board member technology and innovation at Deutsche Telekom.

“I welcome this operator initiative to take ownership of the edge opportunity by joining forces to deliver our capabilities in a federated edge service.

“Leveraging MobiledgeX as a platform partner and aggregator in the federation puts operators on the best track to create scale, bring in the developer community and make a market impact.”

Sunay Tripathi, chief technology officer, MobiledgeX said: “Unlike cloud execution, which is designed to appear infinite and ‘somewhere else,’ edge execution is location-specific, finite in terms of per location resources, and requiring a multi-vendor, multi-cloud, multi-access solution.

“The MobiledgeX Edge Cloud design is based on maximising control, choice, and trust from the perspective of all participants: the application owner, the business customer and the infrastructure operator.”
