Cloudera, Inc., providing machine learning and analytics solutions optimized for the cloud, unveiled the launch of an end-to-end, open source Internet of Things (IoT) architecture in collaboration with Red Hat and Eurotech.
This collaboration provides a modern IoT architecture that is scalable, secure, and technologically advanced without vendor lock-in, according to Cloudera.
Cloudera with Red Hat, a provider of open source software solutions, and Eurotech, a provider of industrial embedded hardware, have collaborated to develop an end-to-end architecture that is based on open standards and is integrated, flexible and runs on multi- or hybrid-cloud environments.
This architecture is designed to provide the foundational components that organizations need to quickly and securely roll out IoT use cases.
This modular architecture also features end-to-end data management and analytics capabilities, including the ability to push machine learning and intelligence back out to the ‘edge’ for real-time decision making.
From onboarding and managing connected devices or ‘things,’ to enabling protocol translation and performing analytics at the edge; from delivering real-time analytics and machine learning on IoT data to accelerating application development cycles, and enabling integration with enterprise applications, the architecture enables enterprises to accelerate their IoT deployments while ensuring end-to-end data security and compliance.
The modular IoT architecture also offers enterprises the freedom to run in the cloud and/or on premises, enabling portability of data and applications and eliminating dependence on a single proprietary cloud vendor. Its built-in security features enable analytics from the edge to the cloud.
“Open standards and interoperability, already important to helping solve IoT connectivity and data integration issues, are even more important as enterprises face the challenge of more efficiently delivering more secure and scalable IoT solutions in hybrid and multi-cloud environments,” said Jered Floyd, Technology Strategist, Office of the CTO at Red Hat. “With the launch of this end-to-end architecture with Cloudera and Eurotech, we are helping IoT customers address that challenge while enabling cloud-provider choice.”
