The number of edge devices, along with the data they produce, is growing exponentially. Gartner® predicts that “by 2025, 75% of data will be outside of this centralized [data centers or cloud regions] facilities.”1 Edge computing is required to manage and process that data, but the complexity of distributed environments can make it difficult for customers to get up and running quickly. By enabling access to core services, organizations can take advantage of an initial edge use case while also laying a foundation for future growth, just as previously seen with cloud adoption.
“Just as we saw happening with the cloud providers in the beginning, it is time for the edge market to go beyond infrastructure and also offer value-added services,” said Said Ouissal, Founder and CEO of ZEDEDA. “Now, with ZEDEDA Edge Application Services, we can offer our customers the ability to manage, configure and monitor their edge applications simply by leveraging the ZEDEDA ecosystem.”
ZEDEDA Edge Application Services are delivered using ZEDEDA’s leading edge orchestration solution, which reduces costs while increasing visibility, security and control. The new industry-leading suite of services provides remote access, inventory and configuration management, and Kubernetes management services tailored to the individual needs of each deployment and customer.
ZEDEDA Edge Access: a simple and secure remote access solution
The first service in the suite, ZEDEDA Edge Access, enables IT administrators and platform operations teams to instantly access any remote device at any time, from any location. It’s a simple solution that provides secure access, control, and audit tracking for edge deployments.
ZEDEDA Edge Access is secure out-of-the-box, with built-in access controls that provide full encryption of user sessions, and requires no backend configuration or specialized skills. ZEDEDA Edge Access Service eliminates the overhead associated with conventional remote access methods and provides a streamlined and efficient alternative.
ZEDEDA Edge Access Service also provides granular user control and access, enabling customers to provide third parties with secure access to their edge infrastructure. For example, if there is a problem with a specific application, the software vendor or developer can securely access it, perform audits, and fix problems if necessary. This service, and similar services, will ultimately enable ZEDEDA partners and OEMs to generate new revenue streams.
ZEDEDA’s open, distributed, cloud-native edge management and orchestration solution has attracted strategic OEM and customer relationships with Global 500 companies, including Emerson, Rockwell Automation and VMware. The company continues to quadruple the number of edge nodes it manages annually, scales to 100,000 edge nodes and has raised more than $55 million in capital from investors including Coast Range Capital, Lux Capital, Energize Ventures, Porsche Ventures, Chevron Technology Ventures, Emerson Ventures, Juniper Networks, Rockwell Automation, Samsung Next and EDF North America Ventures.
