A partnership between Robin.io, Blue Arcus and KloudSpot will combine the technologies needed to enable end-to-end 4G and 5G services and provide a platform to accelerate the deployment of 5G and edge applications. The consortium will bring together capabilities such as AI-based video analytics, surveillance, data analytics, hyper-automation, network slicing, cloud-native application lifecycle management and large-scale orchestration. Partners hope this will cut time to market and operating costs in half for evolving digital businesses on the edge.
WeRide, the Chinese leader in L4 autonomous driving, uses Alluxio’s Data orchestration software as a hybrid cloud storage gateway for on-premises applications to access public cloud storage like AWS S3. There is a location-based cache to eliminate redundant requests to S3. In addition to removing the complexity of manual data synchronization, Alluxio delivers data directly to engineers working with the same data in the same office, bypassing the transfer costs associated with S3 and improving end-user work efficiency. Many times.
A cycle and Backfire B2 Cloud Storage integration enables organizations that use containers to automate and control stateful data from multiple vendors from a single dashboard. This partnership allows developers to deploy containers without managing the complexities of Kubernetes, to unify the management of their applications, including automating or scheduling backups through a portal connected to an API. They can choose the microservices and technologies they need without, both claim, compromising functionality.
