EdgeMicro Launches Proof of Concept Program For Edge Implementations
The no-cost testing environment allows selected companies to test their own edge computing applications and solutions in an EdgeMicro data center.
EdgeMicro is launching a first-of-its-kind Proof of Concept Program that will enable companies to dramatically accelerate their timeline for proving the viability, scalability, and performance of their edge computing pilot projects. Companies seeking to test low-latency applications that take advantage of edge-located data cache and compute services can apply to utilize a no-cost testing environment in an EdgeMicro data center that is dedicated to these pilot projects.
“All companies seeking success at the edge recognize near-zero latency can only be achieved by placing their IT hardware and services closer to the consumer. These companies include content providers, wireless companies, IoT and other service providers. While each company delivers unique value, they all have a common challenge: the hurdles of cost and speed to market are too high,” said Mike Hagan, CEO of EdgeMicro. “Our company’s mission is to solve problems for and deliver benefit to all organizations seeking success at the edge. We believe our no-cost Proof of Concept program is the solution.”
“Edge computing is poised for major growth, and our goal is to help companies deploy to the edge as easily as possible. Our Proof of Concept Program will give participants the platform they need to win at the edge,” said Hagan.
The testing environment is in a secure, fully-redundant 48 kW EdgeMicro data center in Denver and is supported by key partners including Megaport, Fiber Mountain and BitBox. Customer testing will commence November 1, 2018 with a target end date of February 2019.
“This program gives companies much more than a testing environment,” said Josh Snowhorn, chief strategy officer. “Selected participants will be among the first to leverage EdgeMicro’s patented ETX (Edge Traffic Exchange), a distributed micro internet exchange program designed for mobile interconnectivity. Last, but not least, they will receive strategic and technical support of experts like our CTO Anton Kapela, VP of Operations Loren Zweig and EVP of Business Development Greg Pettine.”
