Red Hat’s David Egts on Potential of Edge Computing, Open Hybrid Cloud for Government Data Management

Red Hats David Egts on Potential of Edge Computing Open Hybrid Cloud for Government Data Management
TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 19, 2021 — David Egts, senior director and chief technologist of Red Hat‘s North American public sector business, indicated during a question-and-answer session with ExecutiveBiz the use of edge computing devices and an open hybrid cloud approach could help agencies address data management challenges. “Edge devices are meant to provide near real-time information about whatever might be happening where that edge device is located.” Egts said a hybrid cloud platform that is built on an open-source substrate allows users to manage devices and move workloads at the edge. “Basically, an open hybrid cloud gives you a single, standardized infrastructure that always stays the same so that everything else can be different.” If you’re interested in data management strategies in the government, check out GovCon Wire’s...

The rise of open source at the edge is happening by necessity, as no two edge networks and device clusters are alike, requiring high degrees of customization Next time you run data analytics or use a mobile app, thank an open-source community. No other force has opened up innovation and accessibility in computing as much as the open-source movement. Open-source systems make the world’s cloud providers, corporate data centers, social media platforms, and mobile apps. Now, open source is opening the next frontier in technology – edge computing. Crack open a typical edge computing device, and chances are you will find Linux or another open-source system inside. The rise of open source at the edge is happening by necessity, as no two edge networks and device clusters are alike, requiring high degrees of customization. At the same time, the...

Open Grid Alliance aims to support cloud computing at the edge

OGA2
Join Transform 2021 this July 12-16. Register for the AI event of the year. VMware and Vapor IO this week kicked off an ambitious effort to rearchitect the internet via a vendor-neutral Open Grid Alliance (OGA) that aims to make network services easier for app developers to consume. Other founding members of the OGA include Dell Technologies, DriveNets, MobiledgeX, and PacketFabric. But the OGA is not seeking to define any specific technology implementations and is open to all interested parties, Vapor IO CEO Cole Crawford told VentureBeat. In fact, the OGA is deliberately staying away from creating any type of formal foundation structure, Crawford added. “A lot of people are suffering foundation fatigue,” he said. Vapor IO today provides its own framework for integrating edge computing platforms and distributed datacenters to enable...

Enterprise open source and edge computing: 4 stats to know

cio data analyze
Edge computing and enterprise open source are two important trends that have a lot to do with each other. Edge depends upon open  hybrid cloud, to deliver flexibility and consistency advantages for enterprise IT. It’s a symbiotic relationship, as Rosa Guntrip, senior principal marketing manager, cloud platforms at Red Hat, recently noted. “Businesses need flexibility in terms of where they place their workloads, and if their strategy changes, [they need] consistency of operations – for both ITOps and developers, so as to enable them to react quickly and with minimal disruption,” says Guntrip. [ Get a shareable primer: How to explain edge computing in plain English.]  The 2021 State of Enterprise Open Source Report  offers up some data points that highlight the relationship between edge, enterprise open source, and other critical...
