VMware and InfluxData team up over enterprise and industrial IoT data

San Francisco-based tech firm InfluxData has announced that it will be integrating its technology with VMware’s IoT infrastructure management solution -- the Pulse IoT Centre, which embeds InfluxData’s InfluxDB Enterprise and Kapacitor.

The Pulse IoT Centre is an enterprise-grade IoT device management and monitoring solution, allowing customers to manage, monitor and secure IoT systems and connected devices, whereas InfluxDB Enterprise is the modern open source purpose-built time series database and Kapacitor is the real-time stream processing component of the InfluxData platform, which analyses huge quantities of sensor data in real-time. A solution is created by integrating the two InfluxData solutions with the Pulse IoT Centre, which enhances the ability of organisations to handle the massive amounts of data related with industrial and enterprise IoT workloads.

Mimi Spier, VP of Internet of Things Business at VMware, said: “IoT is a new frontier for the enterprise, and the ability to operate at the edge is non-negotiable. Simply put, there must be edge computing to process data closer to where IoT devices reside, and real-time collecting, visualising and processing of device metrics and time-series data to deliver insight, and competitive advantage.”

The VMware Pulse IoT Centre was introduced in early 2018, alongside its other advanced edge computing solutions, namely the VMware vSAN hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) software and VMware vSphere. VMware collaborated with multiple partners, including Wipro Limited and Axis Communications, wherein the company worked with the former to give manufacturers a complete edge to Cloud IoT solution for enhanced productivity and enhancing advanced surveillance capabilities with the latter wherein customers could manage, monitor, and secure their Axis cameras and routers.
