Riding on the global trend of IoT platforms and applications, inwinSTACK is proud to announce the release of its new product solution – IoT Cloud+Edge Platform at the IoT exhibition event held in the Taipei IoT Innovation Lab on 2/23.
The newly released product would be an integrated solution of OpenStack cloud, Ceph storage, Kubernetes container engine, and Edge computing server. Highlight of the product focuses on the Edge server/Intelligent gateway, which is capable of bringing cloud-enabled functions to gateway-level, or in other words, closer to the data source. This would significantly reduce the amount of data processing/analyzing time being performed on the cloud, and dramatically improves network latency. The IoT Cloud-Edge Platform is able to meet the requirements of high-speed data processing and quicker response which may seem problematic for standard centralized cloud-based models.
The Taipei IoT Innovation Lab is established by the Taipei City Hall, with sponsorship and contributions made by industry players including DELL Taiwan, Gemtek, Asia Pacific Telecom Co., etc. The Lab aims to provide a platform equipped with IT software and hardware allowing entrepreneurial or research groups to conduct IoT related research and experiments. The ultimate goal is to develop and transform Taipei into a Smart City filled with intelligent applications. Many industry leaders and foreign visitors were present at the exhibition to witness the achievement of Taipei in the field of IoT. The event successfully brought together domestic and foreign groups who share the vision of driving the advancement of IoT and smart cities.
