EDJX, the pioneer in decentralized global serverless edge computing, today announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with Zeblok Computational to integrate the capabilities of the EDJX Platform with the Zeblok Ai-MicroCloud®, a cloud-native, turn-key ML ops platform that enables businesses to deploy Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications easily and efficiently to thousands of edge locations - at scale.
The partnership will provide Zeblok customers access to the EDJX Platform capabilities utilizing EDJX compute, network, and storage resources. Zeblok's Ai-MicroCloud® solves the problem of scaling at the edge, making it easy to deploy AI inferences to edge locations. Together the offering is a digital foundation for enterprises, Cloud Service Providers, Managed Service Providers, OEMs and ISVs to execute their AI strategies from Cloud-to-Edge for diverse use cases such as Smart Retail, Industry 4.0, Smart Cities, Smart Transportation and Logistics, and more.
EDJX provides a decentralized Operating System EdjOS or the EDJX Platform that makes it possible for developers to build IoT, AI, and M2M applications and have the requisite computations executed as close as possible to the sources of data. EdjOS enables developers to write, test and deploy smarter applications, data pipelines, websites and IoT solutions on a secure, serverless, peer-to-peer network that spans the globe. Utilizing the platform enables distributed compute resources to create a single fabric for the execution of IoT services, serverless functions, and related workloads. Partnering with Zeblok expands EDJX market reach and distribution capabilities in the AI applications marketplace.
The Zeblok Ai-MicroCloud® enables businesses to deploy an AI Platform-as-a-Service for ML op's developers to create and rapidly deploy AI inference engines. Customers can curate and aggregate their AI assets (algorithms, third-party ISVs, homegrown models, etc.) in their own Ai-AppStore for easy access, automated workflows, and rapid application development. Utilizing the same end-to-end application lifecycle management process upon a heterogeneous server topology can dramatically lower the "cost per insight" for AI inferences.
The Zeblok Computational Intelligent Edge Alliance program enables strategic partners such as edge cloud operators, distributors, data centers, and OEMs to provide a pre-production edge lab experience for customers to "try-to-buy" the solution.
"EDJX's strategic alignment with Zeblok combines capabilities that bring to market unsurpassed competitive differentiation, scaling and value for both of our customers for delivering new edge and AI applications. The partnership is a breakthrough in offering new capabilities for next-gen application development," said Benjamin Thomas, EDJX CEO.
"By 2035, there will be one trillion Edge devices, requiring many millions of Multi-Access Edge Computing data centers (MECs), with most data created and acted upon at MECs. Zeblok's Ai-MicroCloud® integration with the EDJX decentralized edge mesh will give Zeblok customers a global serverless edge pathway to scale next-gen AI applications," said Zeblok Computational CEO Mouli Narayanan.
