By recognizing the IoT and edge as the way of future, VMware has been betting on it. Besides facing competition from the other players including AWS, Pulse IoT of VMware has capabilities to get a leading position in the market.
Tech analysts has been predicting that in future edge computing will be surpassing clouds, but to other hand in reality, to handle distributed data, lots of servers use clouds. Data gathered from the smart devices and sensors has been initially analyzed at the edge servers and in order to monitor, manage and maintain these edge servers, IT administrators have to do all the work done remotely.
Rather than attached with the peoples, IoT are the data generating devices linked with the other things, that might be generating a lot more data than a person generates while using his or her smartphone. And that data generated by a IoT device may requires immediate processing for which an edge server do the job.
Based upon the generated data, an edge server not only execute further commands but it ,also analyze that data and recognize the need for a data to be analyze further. A comprehensive data from multiple servers has been required for developing information on long term basis.
Availing the opportunity by supporting enterprise IT organizations for management of their edge servers, VMware has been getting the lead. Its vRealize has already been installed and configured with large number of VMs and its AirWatch with its ability to manage mobile devices as well , with a little change, manage edge servers could be moving ahead with.
To the consistent requirement of configurations device management outside the cloud or corporate data centers, VMware with its Pulse IoT, has been simplifying the process delivering remote management and easy deployments of these devicet, normally embedded in other machines like medical instruments, smart surveillance cameras and autonomous vehicles.
