Technologies

ZEDEDA extends key technologies beyond your cloud and data center to the edge, wherever you need them.

ZEDEDA’s orchestration solution for the distributed edge takes advantage of the latest innovations and technologies to operationalize edge deployments at scale for manufacturers, energy providers, retailers and beyond.

Public Cloud

Public Cloud



ZEDEDA supports  simple and scalable deployment of public cloud offers that extend their analytics and storage services to the edge to enable real-time responses to events and reduce unnecessary data transfer.

Edge Analytics

Edge Analytics



ZEDEDA simplifies deployment of edge applications close to the data source to enable low-latency edge analytics, reducing bandwidth costs, and improving security. We collaborate with domain expert ISVs and SIs to deliver industry-leading solutions and also support any open analytics framework.

  • TensorFlow Lite to deploy machine learning models on IoT Edge devices
  • OpenVINO with optimizations for Intel hardware

Security

Security



ZEDEDA leverages several key technologies to implement a Zero Trust security model. This is a necessity for edge computing nodes deployed outside of data centers because they don’t have a physical or network perimeter.

  • Hardware-based root of trust (e.g. TPM, TEE)
  • Measured boot and remote attestation
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA)
  • Data encryption at rest and in motion (via TLS)
  • Distributed firewall for policy-based app control

Edge Application Frameworks

Edge Application Frameworks



Open edge application frameworks are an essential enabler to deploy, connect, secure, and operate applications across edge computing sites at scale.

  • EdgeX Foundry facilitating IoT edge interoperability
  • Fledge for critical operations at the industrial edge

Industrial Connectivity

Industrial Connectivity



Supporting a broad scope of industrial protocols is critical for deploying edge solutions that normalize data from both legacy investments and modern devices and systems. ZEDEDA provides a secure foundation to deploy any third-party industrial connectivity stack.

  • Normalizes both standard and proprietary industrial protocols into IP formats
  • EVE-OS enables policy-based application assignment to hardware ports through silicon-based I/O virtualization
  • Support for legacy Windows-based connectivity solutions deployed in VMs

Containers at the Edge

Containers at the Edge



Containers and cloud-native development practices have changed the way developers package and run applications. ZEDEDA provides a secure foundation to deploy containerized applications at the edge to enhance the overall digitalization experience of industrial IT/OT processes.

  • Kubernetes clusters (e.g., K8s, K3s, K0s and microK8s)
  • Any OCI-complaint container, including Docker

Virtualization at the Edge

Virtualization at the Edge



As enterprises increasingly adopt cloud-native development principles at the edge, they still need virtual machines to support legacy application investments. ZEDEDA leverages open source EVE-OS from LF Edge that can support virtual machines through choice of hypervisor, in addition to native containers and Kubernetes clusters.

  • XEN and KVM for general purpose virtualization
  • ACRN for supporting mixed-criticality workloads
