Introducing VMware Edge

A software-defined digital edge-to-cloud foundation that’s flexible, simplifies edge and IoT infrastructure complexity, and secures devices, applications and data at scale.

The Foundation for Edge Success

VMware Edge™ is a software-defined edge foundation that enables OT and IT teams to focus on accelerating digital innovation by standardizing, securing, and scaling dynamic edge and IoT environments. With VMware Edge and IoT Solutions, you can extend your hybrid and ubiquitous digital foundation to support all of your Edge and IoT implementations with a single, scalable, simplified Edge to Cloud architecture. 

Extend your Digital Foundation to the Edge

  • Run your applications/analytics anywhere via consistent infrastructure and operations from edge to cloud
  • Build a best-of-breed solution with a platform that supports an open ecosystem of devices, app services, and partner offerings
  • Eliminate OT and IT silos by providing the confidence of security, manageability, and scale of your IoT solutions

Secure your Edge and IoT Endpoints

  • Remotely manage, monitor, and secure thousands of locations and millions of diverse devices
  • Automatically remediate threats and anomalies with embedded security and isolation from cloud to edge
  • Ensure rapid delivery of the latest apps, containers and infrastructure updates via granular OTA lifecycle management

Scale and Accelerate your Innovation

  • Realize quicker time to value with pre-built, tested, end-to-end IoT solutions
  • Leverage the value of the data from your IoT things faster with zero-touch onboarding and pre-provisioning
  • Ensure enterprise-grade connectivity across all branches, clouds, and devices with SD Wan and micro segmentation

Take Control of the Edge

VMware Edge™ is a software-defined edge foundation that enables OT and IT teams to focus on accelerating digital innovation by standardizing, securing, and scaling dynamic edge and IoT environments

Device Edge Solutions 

The device edge includes IoT end-point devices such as gateways and sensors and acts as an aggregation point for the data that comes from these things and a decoupling point to ensure they are connected to secure endpoints. 

VMware Pulse IoT Center

Optimized for Things

VMware Pulse IoT Center onboards, manages, monitors and secures edge and IoT devices and enables IT and OT to have complete control of their IoT implementations from the edge to the cloud. Optimized for things, this device edge solution is a secure, enterprise-grade IoT device management and monitoring solution.

Photon OS

Photon Operating System (OS) provides a secure run-time environment for efficiently running containers. Photon OS is an open source Linux distribution optimized for cloud-native applications, cloud platforms, and VMware infrastructure. The combination of Photon OS and Pulse IoT center supports running modern cloud native and container-based apps including data analytics and data filtering close to the point of data origination at the Edge. Photon OS is released as open source software and provides community support through our GitHub project page.

Workspace ONE

Optimized for People

Workspace ONE IoT integrates access control, application management and multi-platform endpoint management and is available as a cloud service or for on-premises deployment. Optimized for people, this device edge solution is an intelligence-driven digital workspace platform powered by VMware AirWatch Technology that simply and securely delivers and manages any app on any device.

Compute Edge Solutions 

The compute edge includes specialized compute processing systems located at non–data center and non–cloud locations—such as retail stores, factories, oil rigs, electricity sub-stations—to support data processing at the edge.

VMware Cloud on Dell EMC

VMware Cloud on Dell EMC combines the simplicity and agility of the public cloud with the security and control of on-premises infrastructure, delivered as-a-service to data center and edge locations. This fully-managed VMware service provides simple, secure, and scalable infrastructure for customer’s on-premises datacenter and edge locations. This unique approach empowers you to focus on business innovation and differentiation, while VMware operates the entire infrastructure end-to-end.

Network Edge Solutions  

Edge and IoT use cases require connectivity from the device edge and compute edge back and forth to the cloud and datacenter environments. The network edge connects critical functions – virtualization, compute, IoT, cloud, data center - at the Edge of the enterprise where these processes reside.

VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud

VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud delivers high-performance, reliable edge access to cloud services, private data centers, and SaaS-based enterprise applications.

Dell Technologies IoT Solutions powered by VMware 

Dell Technologies IoT solutions includes a broad portfolio that delivers measurable value faster through a scalable, secure, manageable and open infrastructure.

Dell Technologies IoT Solution | Surveillance

Dell Technologies IoT Solution combines hardware and software optimized for surveillance needs along with Edge and IoT management and orchestration capabilities including VMware Pulse IoT Centre and VMware Software-Defined Data Center.
