An End-to-End Open Source Architecture for IoT
Enabling Open Source Innovation in IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) arena is exploding with a diverse set of technologies, platforms, standards, and architectures, each of which promise to be the panacea and the path forward for future enterprise adoption. However, given the rapid speed of change, innovation, and the wide variety of use cases that IoT enables, it would be highly unlikely that any single proprietary IoT solution by one vendor can keep up with the new standards, requirements, and technologies that are fast emerging. Early adopter organizations who locked into proprietary IoT “platforms” are now finding themselves tied to limited functionality, locked into a particular vendor, and rethinking their choices. Many are now asking for open source alternatives, recognizing the value of an open source community as a hub for innovation and continuous development for IoT.
An end-to-end IoT architecture based on open source technologies is starting to emerge as an attractive option for organizations embarking on their IoT journey. We believe that in the coming years the IoT market, similar to the enterprise software market, will pivot more towards adopting an open source and open-standards ecosystem that enables collaborative innovation, promotes interoperability, flexibility, and modularity.
Eclipse IoT is a collaborative community that is working together to establish an IoT architecture based on open source technologies and standards. Eclipse IoT is made up of over 30 member companies (including organizations such as Red Hat, Cloudera, Bosch, Eurotech and more) with more than 28 different open source projects aimed at driving innovation within the IoT space.
End-to-End Open Source Architecture for IoT
Building on some of the advanced Eclipse projects, Red Hat, Eurotech, and Cloudera have combined our strengths and integrated our technologies to deliver the first end-to-end open source IoT architecture that addresses enterprise-level IoT needs. We are making it easier for organizations by providing a validated, modular, flexible IoT architecture built to be open, interoperable, and cost effective.
From managing connected devices or ‘things’ and the data they produce to performing analytics at the edge; from delivering real-time analytics and machine learning to accelerating IoT application development cycles and enabling enterprise application integration, this end-to-end open source architecture for IoT delivers:
- Capabilities to securely connect and manage up to millions of distributed IoT devices and gateways
- Simplified data flow management with intelligence and analytics at the edge
- A comprehensive, centralized advanced analytics and data management platform with the ability to build or refine machine learning models and push these out to the edge
- Application development, deployment and integration services
Join us at Strata Data, New York to Learn More
At Strata Data, New York, learn more and dig deeper into the end-to-end open source architecture for IoT and see live demos in action. Join Dave Shuman, Industry Lead for IoT at Cloudera and James Kirkland, Chief Architect for IoT at Red Hat for a session where they lay out this end-to-end IoT architecture, from the device and the gateways to the cloud, leading up to enterprise applications. In this session they will also highlight some of the key open source technologies including Eclipse Kura, which is an open source stack for gateways and the edge, Eclipse Kapua, an open source IoT cloud platform, and Cloudera CDH, the persistent data store and centralized data management/analytics platform.
See details on the session below:
|Session – Wednesday, September 27th | Location: Room 1E 09|
|5:25 – 6:05 PM ET||An open source architecture for the IoT||Dave Shuman (Cloudera), James Kirkland (Red Hat)|
Industry 4.0 Demo
Apart from the session, we will also showcase a joint demo at the Cloudera booth #225 on Industry 4.0 that highlights how you can use open source architectures and components to deploy IoT use cases.
The demo will utilize open source architectures to collect, process and analyze data from connected factories in order to enable predictive maintenance for machinery. It will also highlight end-to-end data management and analytics — including how you can build machine learning models in the centralized data hub (in the cloud) and then effectively push the models back to the edge for immediate action.
