The Eclipse Foundation at Edge Computing World

Thursday, November 28, 2019 - 11:00 by Frédéric Desbiens
Edge computing, a distributed computing architecture that brings compute power and storage physically closer to applications in order to improve performance and increase efficiency, is forecast to generate a market worth $16.5 billion within the next five years (Allied Market Research, 2019).

The Eclipse Foundation is the home of two innovative projects that have been built from the ground up to address the challenges of edge computing: Eclipse fog05 and Eclipse ioFog. fog05’s approach is to create a unified compute fabric that spans across things, edge nodes and the Cloud. ioFog, on the other hand, creates a distributed Edge Compute Network (ECN) where you can deploy and run microservices.

If you wish to learn more about ioFog, fog05 and the rest of the edge computing ecosystem, you should attend the Edge Computing World Conference, December 9-12 2019 at the Computing History Museum in Silicon Valley.  I will have the pleasure to host a developer workshop on various Eclipse Edge technologies at 11:30am local time on December 10. The Eclipse Foundation is proud to support this brand new conference. You can register here and save 10% by using the ECLIPSE10 registration code.

In addition to the workshop, the Eclipse Foundation will have a booth at the event. We are also working on a special announcement... Stay tuned!

Please help us build the open source edge computing ecosystem. See you at the conference!
