Exploring the Edge

In today’s world of uber-connectivity and IIoT devices, edge computing is extremely fascinating. When you break the process down to its simplest forms, edge computing takes the data from IIoT devices and moves it to the “edge” and processes it much closer to the actual device the data came from. This results in more instantaneous and accurate data to work with and eliminates the need to send data across long routes to data centers or clouds.

NodeWeaver, an industry-leader within the edge computing world, is a zero-management edge cloud fabric - integrating storage, networking, and virtualization in a single system. It was built to deliver full data center capabilities on virtually any x86-based hardware. NodeWeaver is very user-friendly as well because it allows customers to start small and expand their infrastructure as needed, one node at a time.

IIoT and The Edge

The growth within the IIoT realm has been astounding and because of this, the need for a stronger, more powerful and more intelligent edge is justified. Everyday, IIoT solution stacks are becoming more advanced and responsive. From analyzing sensor data, to making AI-driven decisions, to taking action in real time, the evolution we’re experiencing is incredible.

NodeWeaver’s edge cloud fabric is lightweight and agile and works harmoniously with the ever-changing demands of IIoT. While NodeWeaver is powerful on its own, combining forces with NetFoundry has unleashed capabilities like never before. With NetFoundry, NodeWeaver is able to extend its zero-management approach to the network.

Now, it’s easy to spin up software-only, Zero Trust, micro-segmented networks, also known as AppWANs, directly from NodeWeaver cloud fabric environments over existing Internet connections without sacrificing speed or security.

How Connectivity Works at the Edge

The NodeWeaver edge control fabric is simple and easy-to-use so NodeWeaver must also supply customers with simple and easy-to-use connectivity between their distributed nodes. This connectivity solution must also include built-in automation, multi-dimensional security, and infinite scalability. NetFoundry is the connectivity solution that enables NodeWeaver to do just that.

As a combined unit, NodeWeaver can instantly deploy NetFoundry mesh networks between edge nodes, which are driving IIoT. Now, NodeWeaver customers can spin up software-only AppWANs directly between their environments over existing Internet connections.

This helps IIoT customers solve 3 challenges while protecting critical systems from outside threats. Limiting access to apps with micro-segmented, least privilege access AppWANs integrated into Identity and Access Management (IAM), abstracting critical systems away from the Internet using bi-directional and outbound-only dark networks, and harnessing multi-dimensional security architectures for data-in motion protection.

We're Transforming Connectivity

  • The level of efficiency we will gain from working with Netfoundry cannot be understated. Today, all industries have one commonality, and it is critical to give everyone in the ability to access all applications when they need to, whenever they need to, no matter where they are, and they need to have this access securely.
