AWS IoT Greengrass
For Rugged Edge Computing
Leverage real-time cloud capabilities toward industrial, onboard and remote rugged edge computer deployments.
What is AWS IoT Greengrass?
AWS IoT Greengrass is AWS’ solution for developers requiring a less centralized processing platform for their IoT network. AWS IoT Greengrass empowers edge computers to act locally on the data they collect and generate. AWS Greengrass delivers immediacy, autonomy and security to IoT deployments.
Broad Platform Support
How is AWS IoT Greengrass Reshaping the Edge?
The growing reliance on edge computing systems has pushed the need for cloud capabilities in decentralized connected systems. AWS IoT Greengrass delivers AWS to edge devices for developers to easily run AWS Lambda, Docker containers, leverage machine learning, maintain system synchronization and communicate securely with other devices. Certified devices have validated they can run AWS IoT Greengrass and interoperate with AWS IoT services, automatically syncing and interacting with the cloud.
The IoT’s Intelligent, Rugged Edge
Facilities, businesses and organizations have long sought more and more channels to feed them a wider variety of data they can put toward improving operations. As galaxies of fresh IoT endpoints made the data volume unwieldy and its value indiscernible without sufficient computing power to make sense of it, cloud computing stepped in to take over the workload. Reliance on the cloud, however, has become infeasible in many deployments where real-time data processing and event response are hampered by latency and sporadic connectivity undercut the value that advanced cloud computation brings. Enter the edge computer.
Edge computers decentralize enterprise network systems by removing the need to traffic all data back to a central hub (with or without cloud connection) for processing. Instead, edge computers are deployed closer to the locations their functionality is required, preserving situational immediacy and system responsiveness.
Rugged edge computers are specialized durable hardware that delivers advanced compute capabilities to environments inconducive to traditional systems. Facilities shifting to Industry 4.0, exposed critical infrastructure environments, connected transportation system onboard deployments all require intelligent computing and inference analytics to optimize performance and guarantee security and safety. The most effective rugged edge computers have fewer points of failure, can maintain peak performance without downtime and are resilient against shock and temperature extremes.
