FogHorn Systems follows up Google IIoT collaboration with Wind River partnership
A new collaboration between FogHorn Systems and Intel-owned Wind River will see the integration of FogHorn’s Lightning edge analytics and ML platform with Wind River’s software products to advance IIoT.
As part of the collaboration, announced a week after a partnership with Google, both parties have agreed to combine the FogHorn platform with Wind River software including Wind River Helix Device Cloud, Wind River Titanium Control, and Wind River Linux to speed up the competitive imperative industrial organisations encounter to harness the power of their IIoT data.
The combined solution was on display at Embedded World 2018, in Nuremberg, Germany, from 27 February to 1 March.
While FogHorn allows organisations to position data analytics and ML as near as possible to the data source, Wind River offers the technology to support manageability of edge devices throughout their life span, virtualisation for workload consolidation and software portability through containerisation.
The Foghorn platform is claimed to be the planet’s most advanced, compact and feature-rich edge intelligence solution capable of offering superior low latency for onsite data processing, real-time analytics, ML and AI capabilities.
Commenting on the team up, Wind River CPO Michael Krutz said: "Wind River's collaboration with FogHorn will solve two big challenges in Industrial IoT today, getting analytics and machine learning close to the devices generating the data, and managing thousands to hundreds of thousands of endpoints across their product lifecycle. We’re very excited about this integrated solution, and the significant value it will deliver to our joint customers globally."
FogHorn’s partnership with Google Cloud aims to provide business impact expansion of IIoT via the integration of Cloud IoT Core capabilities with its Lightning edge intelligence and ML platform.
