Edgeworx is bringing Kubernetes to the IoT edge with its ioFog Engine, enabling companies to run any software on any endpoint using open-source software.
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based startup announced in June that its Eclipse ioFog software can make any Kubernetes distribution "edge-aware." Available from the Eclipse Foundation, the software lets companies deploy microservices and applications from the cloud in addition to creating an Edge Compute Network for the purpose of sharing encrypted data.
The company came out of stealth mode late last year with seed funding raised from Samsung Next, Sequoia Seed and CloudScale Capital Partners.
