Red Hat Device Edge Is Now Generally Available
Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the general availability of Red Hat Device Edge. Red Hat Device Edge provides a consistent platform designed for resource-constrained environments which require small form factor compute at the device edge, including Internet of Things (IoT) gateways, industrial controllers, smart displays, point of sales terminals, vending machines, robots and more.
Red Hat Device Edge aggregates an enterprise-ready and supported distribution of the Red Hat-led open source community project MicroShift (a lightweight Kubernetes project derived from the edge capabilities of Red Hat OpenShift) along with an edge-optimized operating system built from Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With general availability, Red Hat Device Edge now also includes Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform for more consistent Day 1 and Day 2 management of hundreds to thousands of sites and devices. As edge computing adoption grows across nearly every industry, Red Hat Device Edge offers customers and partners:
Red Hat is working with partners and customers including ABB, DSO National Laboratories, Dynatrace, Guise AI, Intel, Lockheed Martin and more to deploy, test and validate that Red Hat Device Edge can extend operational consistency across edge and hybrid cloud environments. Devices can be deployed in a remote desert, at sea or even in space, all while maintaining a consistent deployment and management experience, while using familiar processes and tools.
Red Hat Device Edge delivers automation at the far edge
Effectively managing workloads at the edge increases the importance of consistent and reliable automation. The general availability of Red Hat Device Edge adds the power of Ansible Automation Platform to Red Hat Device Edge, adding the power of industry-leading IT automation. Red Hat Device Edge now offers:
"Red Hat Device Edge is community tested and ecosystem verified, built to extend Red Hat's hybrid cloud solutions all the way out to our customer and partner's furthest and most hard to reach edge use cases. With the inclusion of Ansible Automation Platform, Red Hat Device Edge offers organizations tools for consistent and dependable automation from sea to space and everywhere in between."
Steve Tack, senior vice president, Product Management, Dynatrace
"As organizations extend workloads to edge services and devices, a unified approach to observability and security has become critical to manage complex, hybrid cloud environments. We are pleased to extend our collaboration with Red Hat to enable customers using Red Hat Device Edge to benefit from the Dynatrace platform's AI-powered analytics and automation capabilities. As a result, customers can improve responsiveness, deliver more seamless user experiences, and boost the productivity of their cloud services, down to their lightweight Kubernetes environments at the edge."
Naga Rayapati, founder & CEO, Guise AI
"Built on Red Hat Device Edge, Guise EdgeOps is designed to manage remote edge devices and deploy AI edge workloads in an environment optimized for security. As data at the edge is increasingly vulnerable with the rapid growth in the number of devices, Red Hat Device Edge provides a solid, reliable foundation to safeguard critical data while also helping to accelerate workloads at the furthest device edge."
