smartInfrastructure Innovator Recognized for Paving the Way in Edge Computing by Driving Innovation around IoT and 5G
FREMONT, Calif., November 22, 2021 – Nebulon, Inc.®, the pioneer of smartInfrastructure™, server-embedded, infrastructure software delivered as-a-service, today announced it has been named in CRNs 100 edge computing companies of 2021 list. This announcement follows CRN naming Nebulon a top 50 edge computing startup to watch in 2021.Edge data center adoption has experienced rapid growth over the past few years, forcing enterprises to look for solutions better optimized for edge deployments. This includes reducing or eliminating the need for personnel at the edge, centralizing multi-site infrastructure management, improving security protection and reducing infrastructure costs across edge data centers.
Nebulon’s edge solution, Nebulon smartEdge™, helps IT organizations address the challenges they face with their distributed edge deployments in four areas. First, the solution is designed to streamline site overhead and simplify edge automation initiatives through a single API endpoint in the cloud, Nebulon ON, which enables centralized management and monitoring across sites. Second, smartEdge delivers infrastructure-as-code to the edge, resulting in a 75% reduction in operations overhead and eliminating onsite visit risk. Next, the smartEdge solution centralizes security and permissions management through a single console, which allows enterprises to reduce security exposures at vulnerable edge locations. And finally, enterprises can benefit from improved server density versus hyperconverged infrastructure solutions, equating to 33% fewer server and software licensing costs along with space, power, and cooling requirements at each site.
“We have numerous customers who are looking for new, innovative solutions to help them overcome the management, security and cost pressure they face at the edge,” said Eric Sindelar, Executive Vice President at Source Code. “We are excited about our partnership with Nebulon and see a massive opportunity in edge solutions together. Congratulations to the Nebulon team for their CRN recognition—its a stunning achievement in a short period of time.”
“We are very proud to be recognized in CRN’s 2021 list of 100 Edge computing companies,” said Siamak Nazari, CEO at Nebulon. “This achievement, combined with the volume of customer interest in smartInfrastructure, validates that the edge has been underserved by HCI and is ready to move on to something better.”
