EdgeX Foundry technology will complement the CloudPlugs IoT Edge Gateway products to extend its solutions ecosystem

HANNOVER (HANNOVER MESSE) AND RESTON, VA – April 24, 2017 – CloudPlugs Inc. announced today that it has joined The Linux Foundation and its EdgeX Foundry project as a founding Silver member.  EdgeX Foundry is an open source project to build a common open framework for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components that unifies the marketplace and accelerates enterprise and Industrial IoT. The EdgeX Foundry community is aligned around a common goal: the simplification and standardization of Industrial IoT edge computing, while still allowing the ecosystem to add significant value.


“CloudPlugs was built on the premise that Fog Computing is the only viable architecture to develop and deploy IoT services across all industries.  Fog Computing means a powerful, feature rich, secure, extensible cloud service complemented by advanced edge technology for data collection, control and analytics.  Adding support for EdgeX Foundry components to our advanced edge software products will make them even more attractive as our customers will be able to use best in class applications with the guarantee of interoperability,” said Jimmy Garcia-Meza, Co-Founder and CEO of CloudPlugs. “The CloudPlugs IoT and IIoT Gateways based on the SmartPlug™ IoT agent and built on a micro-service based, modular architecture will offer customers a best of breed platform for the development and deployment of new, interoperable digital services on the edge.  We are looking forward to working with the EdgeX Foundry team to bring to market the next generation of plug and play IoT solutions.”


“The heterogeneous nature of the IoT market is preventing enterprises from deploying IoT out of fear of being locked into a solution,” said Philip DesAutels, PhD Senior Director of IoT at The Linux Foundation. “We look forward to working with CloudPlugs and other EdgeX Foundry members to create a common IoT edge framework that will accelerate Industrial IoT deployments by making it easy to quickly deploy solutions that can adapt to changing business needs.”
