VMware Previews AWS Greengrass Appliance for IoT Edge Device Services

February 05, 2018 / David Ramel

VMware Inc. has taken the wraps off a new appliance that lets users of its vSphere cloud computing virtualization platform perform analytics, serverless computing and even machine learning on Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices. To do that, it leverages the recently announced AWS Greengrass software from Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), used to extend the platform's functionality to local devices. It's all part of the growing movement in which analytics and other computing services are being brought to edge devices, rather than bringing data from edge devices to centralized locations for processing.
