EdgeMicro is launching a Proof-of-Concept Program that will enable companies to accelerate their timeline for proving the viability, scalability and performance of their edge computing pilot projects. Companies seeking to test low-latency applications that take advantage of edge-located data cache and compute services can apply to utilize a no-cost testing environment in an EdgeMicro data center that is dedicated to these pilot projects.
“All companies seeking success at the edge recognize near-zero latency can only be achieved by placing their IT hardware and services closer to the consumer. These companies include content providers, wireless companies, IoT and other service providers. While each company delivers unique value, they all have a common challenge: the hurdles of cost and speed to market are too high,” said Mike Hagan, CEO of EdgeMicro.
The testing environment is in a secure, fully-redundant 48 kW EdgeMicro data center in Denver and is supported by key partners including Megaport, Fiber Mountain and BitBox. Customer testing will commence November 1, 2018 with a target end date of February 2019.
“This program gives companies much more than a testing environment,” said Josh Snowhorn, chief strategy officer. “Selected participants will be among the first to leverage EdgeMicro’s ETX (Edge Traffic Exchange), a distributed micro internet exchange program designed for mobile interconnectivity.”
