Open Source for the Edge at IoT World


Infrastructure is becoming a more critical element in the conversations and work focused around Edge Computing. An ever-growing range of input devices, from smart phones to automotive sensors, is driving the demand for edge systems and services that can effectively and reliably bridge data between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT). The expected output of such systems, of course, is to collect, store and aggregate useful data close to the source with minimized latency, while providing powerful, real-time insights that will allow businesses to make decisions faster.

All of this has helped fuel demand for a new and more robust architecture in an edge environment, capable of secure and reliable compute power that bridges information transfer between the datacenter and the edge. As distributed infrastructure gets closer to device activity and output, companies are looking for innovative ways to leverage open source technology that will help save cost and gain a competitive advantage–while looking to improve in-house productivity and the experiences of its customers.

The Power of Many

As technologies converge to drive new innovation at the edge, organizations are working together more than ever to pave the road forward by combining the likes of 5G, AI/ML, Embedded Systems, High Performance Computing, Kubernetes, private/public environments and more. Companies are bringing specific domain expertise to the table, and SUSE is uniquely positioned with 28 years of Linux and open source expertise to serve as the foundation for developing, distributing and managing edge systems and the critical workloads they will support.

Pushing the Edge at IoT World

Discussions and information sharing about Edge Computing, IoT, AI/ML and more will be on display at the upcoming IoT World Virtual Conference that takes place August 8-11, 2020.

SUSE is a Silver Sponsor at the event, and our Embedded Team will be on-hand to discuss the key features and benefits  open source technology that is shaping edge computing infrastructure and capabilities.

Join us to learn more about:

  • The Value of an Open Architecture
    • Enjoy partnership and collaboration with choice and flexibility, regardless of hardware, installed OS vendors, or cloud environment.
  • Wide Industry Applications
    • Use of SUSE open source technology for edge computing is already making in impact in markets like Retail, Telco and Healthcare, just to name a few.
  • Enterprise-Grade Support and Security
    • SUSE’s renowned support and account teams can become an extension of a customer’s engineering and development effort—from POC, to launch, to extended lifecycle support.

There are a limited number of free passes available to attend the event, so don’t miss the opportunity to hear from the companies that are leading innovation in this rapidly growing and evolving space.

Do Not Miss

After you’ve registered, be sure not to miss the panel discussion featuring SUSE CTO Brent Schroeder. Alongside other bright minds from Boeing, Ford and Clarify360, the group will explore what companies can do to solve complex industry and customer challenges in order to grow business opportunities at the edge.

With a multi-modal operating system at its core, SUSE brings hardened and reliable open source technology to edge computing with flexible and powerful embedded systems, simplified container management, (Read: SUSE’s Acquisition of Rancher Labs), multi-platform infrastructure management, and intelligent, scalable storage.

The SUSE culture and ethos revolves around ‘The Power of Many’, so reach out today and join us next week at IoT World to learn more about the flexibility and choice SUSE provides, and why that could mean faster time to value at the edge for you, and your customers.
