NetFoundry and Fortress Data Centers have teamed up to introduce what they say is the first solution to enable end-to-end, cloud-based orchestration and delivery of edge and IoT applications, regardless of how many underlay networks and clouds they traverse.
The Universal Connected Compute Service simplifies networking, enabling Intelligent Edge application developers to innovate, and provides an operational structure built for the continuous compute paradigm in which apps are composed of distributed microservices, APIs and databases, with the workloads processed on compute spanning many edges and clouds.
The Service provides instant, secure, performant, and scalable connectivity across edge and IoT app devices, Fortress Edge data centers, enterprise cores and public clouds by integrating NetFoundry’s zero trust Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform with Fortress’s edge data center capabilities.
Workloads are managed by a single cloud orchestrated set of policies and routing, regardless of all the underlying networks. Universal Connected Compute Service simplifies the implementation of advanced future leading-edge use cases such as augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR), artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI and ML), and spatial computing.
“We are pleased to move forward with NetFoundry on offering our customers the Universal Connected Compute Service which will make edge deployment of new technologies such as AR, VR, AI and blockchain faster, more secure and scalable,” says Jason Warner, CEO and Founder of Fortress Data Centers.
