ZEDEDA, the leader in edge infrastructure orchestration, today announced its partnership with Avassa, a provider of a container management platform purpose-built for running applications in edge environments. This partnership will enable end-to-end orchestration through the entire stack, ensuring security and visibility from hardware to applications at the edge. The combination of the two solutions will provide customers with a flexible and robust foundation to support existing workloads with ZEDEDA and extend easily to modern container application stacks with Avassa’s edge platform.
“ZEDEDA delivers a trusted and secure edge infrastructure built to support legacy virtual and modern container workloads. Avassa brings simplicity to managing all your containerized applications at the edge,” said Michael Maxey, VP of business development at ZEDEDA. “This partnership with Avassa provides a comprehensive solution that customers deploying technologies at the edge require.”
As customers look to enable new use cases at the edge, they are developing modern, containerized apps that must run on the edge alongside existing virtualized applications. Through this partnership, ZEDEDA customers will be enabled with the full visibility and manageability of cloud-native container applications while also solving the challenges of existing infrastructure at the distributed edge.
According to recent research, 69% of CIOs surveyed said that edge computing is a digital trend that they have already deployed or plan to deploy by mid-2025. This partnership addresses the growing demand for comprehensive solutions that empower customers to deploy new technologies at the edge.
“We’re excited to work with ZEDEDA since they, too, purpose-built their solution for the distributed edge. By leveraging ZEDEDA’s edge-native infrastructure solutions together with Avassa’s edge container application platform, companies benefit from easy edge orchestration without compromising security,” said Avassa CTO Carl Moberg. “Together, users can leverage the very same edge virtualization solution from ZEDEDA to orchestrate their hardware and mixed workloads as well as modern containerized workloads, managed and monitored in the Avassa platform.”
The Avassa Edge Enforcer will be available in the ZEDEDA Marketplace, providing fully automated deployment of container applications within customers’ distributed ZEDEDA environments. The integration will enable customers to easily access Avassa’s container management solution through one-click deployment.
