LF Edge unveils two new community projects for IoT edge

LF Edge, an open source edge computing umbrella organization within the Linux Foundation, has announced the addition of two new stage 1 projects called Nexoedge and NanoMQ.

Nexoedge is a multi-cloud distributed storage that enables applications and devices at the edge to store data into one or more clouds, as a result of research from LF Edge Associate member, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).

The edge-cloud storage also applies Secret Sharing keyless encryption algorithms before data transmission from edge to cloud that offers privacy protection to data that’s only readable on the edge side.

The second stage 1 project, NanoMQ, is a Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) broker for IoT edge. The Linux Foundation claims it helps users unify data in motion and data in use between edge and cloud.

“LF Edge continues to grow across the ecosystem, and we are thrilled to welcome Nexoedge and NanoMQ to the project fold,” says Arpit Joshipura, general manager, networking, edge and IoT, the Linux Foundation.

“Continued innovation across areas such as enhanced edge-cloud storage and IoT data transfer to the cloud is the next step in bringing collaborative open source solutions to the edge and IoT.”

Linux Foundation created an open, interoperable framework for edge computing independent of hardware, silicon, cloud, or operating system.

Speaking about the announcement, JayLin Yu, edge computing solution VP of EMQ and the initiator of the NanoMQ project, says: “The Paradigm-shifting of edge computing brings new challenges for messaging. NanoMQ is here to fill the vacancy by unifying data in motion on the edge; it provides parallel processing of messages, heterogeneous computing on different kinds of OSes and CPUs, and data interoperability that merges fragmented protocols.

“We hope our work can ease other developers’ burdens and accelerate the industrial revolution. Together, we’re building a thriving open source ecosystem. According to the healthy and productive collaboration we have built with the NNG project, I believe it is vital for open source projects to orchestrate with each other, and LF Edge is a new paradise for breeding open-source culture in our generation.”
