Ori and KX Deliver Real-Time Streaming Analytics with Unprecedented Performance Using Telco Edge

Ori and KX | August 11, 2021

Ori Industries, the global edge computing infrastructure firm, has partnered with KX, a worldwide leader in real-time streaming analytics, to provide an ultra-low latency streaming analytics solution for edge devices, leveraging Tier 1 telco networks to get closer to application users.

The integration of Ori's Global Edge (OGE) platform and KX's market-leading streaming analytics software enables real-time in-stream analytics at the edge, significantly increasing the speed at which data can be analysed while also reducing the amount of data that needs to be sent to the cloud for processing.

For organisations that run a distributed computing environment yet are either unable or as yet unwilling to migrate systems fully to the cloud, this approach delivers all the management and scalability benefits of cloud computing without the associated risks around latency, reliability, security and cost. The combined solution enables automated scaling via Kubernetes and self-healing of workloads, with a standardised set of APIs for ease of use.

The ability to push events in real-time to downstream systems is ideally suited for use-cases where large-scale IoT or Mobile Edge Compute (MEC) architectures are running across multiple infrastructures, environments, and geographies, such as autonomous vehicles, predictive maintenance, smart cities and mobile gaming, as well as other high performance, low latency, secure and private enterprise applications for industrial and mission critical infrastructure.

Andy Corston-Petrie, BT's Senior Manager, Mobile Core Networks Research, said: "Enterprises rely increasingly on latency-sensitive solutions that run on premise or in the cloud. With a private edge offering, we can unlock the edge for our enterprise customers who require secure, rapid decision making in highly regulated or closed environments."

Tier 1 telcos like BT are assessing the potential of edge computing and finding the opportunities, trade-offs and requirements that will unlock different business models at the edge, as they look to offer the benefits of cloud with the reliability and performance of edge for their enterprise customers.

Corston-Petrie added: "In Ori Industries and KX, we see partners who can deliver on that edge potential. Together, we can enable enterprise customers to leverage on-site data and analyse it at the source, reducing the time needed for critical decision making."

Douglas Mancini, Chief Commercial Officer at Ori Industries said: "In pairing one of the industry's fastest streaming analytics solutions with our low latency delivery stack we're enabling telcos to leverage their networks like never before, opening up the true promise of 5G."

Paul Hollway, Head of Partnerships at KX said: "We know from our own research that reducing the decision-making window using real-time data analytics is becoming a critical requirement for more and more organisations across all industry sectors. We're excited to be working with Ori to deliver this capability through its platform."

Supermicro Introduces SuperEdge Multi-Node Solutions Leveraging Data Center Scale, Performance, and Efficiency for 5G, IoT, and Edge Applications

Supermicro | February 18, 2022

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in high-performance computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, unveiled a new short-depth multi-node system that is designed and optimized for 5G, IoT, and Edge applications. The Supermicro SuperEdge server is ideal for environments where high-density compute and I/O are required in a small form factor, for example, in on-site settings including retail, branch offices, or field locations such as at the base of cell towers or high traffic areas. By utilizing a 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor in each node, the Supermicro SuperEdge delivers data center processing power at the edge to accelerate analysis and real-time application functionality. The SuperEdge server increases node density by 50% over previous application-optimized servers for 5G, IoT, and Edge workloads. Customers can start with only one server and add additional servers to meet increasing demands as the business grows. "The SuperEdge server increases the compute and I/O densities for edge applications and enables operators to increase system workloads and data processing performed at the edge, reducing network traffic back to data centers, As part of our IT Solutions strategy, designing application-tuned servers for both the edge and the cloud optimizes the deployment of network computing, as we move to the metaverse." Charles Liang, president, and CEO, Supermicro The Supermicro SuperEdge server is designed to fit in small data centers or environments where server depth is critical. With a depth of only 430 mm, the SuperEdge system is easily installed in a wide range of physical environments where space is at a premium. GPUs may also be installed, giving the Supermicro SuperEdge the ability to perform AI calculations at the edge of the network, increasing decision-making capabilities and reducing response times. The nodes and I/O connections are accessible from the front, allowing quick maintenance as needed. In addition, this server will operate in the temperature range of -5°C to 55°C and a wide range of humidity and other environmental conditions. This allows organizations to reduce OPEX and install the server in different locations that may not be in a climate control setting. Redundant power supplies and cooling fans enable the SuperEdge server to operate in harsh conditions outside of a traditional data center. Each of the three hot-swappable nodes can accommodate three PCI-E 4.0 slots, which enable a wide range of add-on cards that accelerate applications designed for edge computing. The I/O density designed into this system allows for multiple acceleration cards, including networking, FPGA, DPU, eASIC, and TimeSync options. Each node can accommodate up to 2TB of DDR4 DRAM, allowing more extensive and more complex applications to be installed and executed than previously available.
