The Internet of Things (IoT, also Cloud of Things or CoT) refers to the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing-like devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications.

ZEDEDA Signs Strategic OEM Supplier Agreement with Agora to Accelerate Deployment of Edge and IoT Solutions for the Energy Market

ZEDEDA, Agora | May 07, 2021

ZEDEDA, the leader in distributed edge orchestration, revealed today an integration with Agora that will provide customers in the oil and gas and clean energy industries with full lifecycle management capability for their edge deployments as part of Agora's overall IoT solution portfolio. The opportunity to extract timely actionable insights from edge conditions such as oil rigs, wells, refineries, wind turbines, and solar farms has the potential to save millions of dollars by reducing equipment failure and safety problems while also ensuring regulatory compliance. However, these conditions are often in rural areas with insufficient workers. Data-center orchestration solutions are not applicable due to cost, footprint, security, and scale criteria, as well as the need for IT skills that are not often available in the sector. To address these challenges, tools that are specifically designed to simplify managing and securing remote edge infrastructure at scale are needed. ZEDEDA introduces to the strategic alliance virtualization, remote management, and orchestration of Agora's IoT edge stack and legacy software loads at scale, all while eliminating security vulnerabilities and maximizing uptime, performance, and ROI. Customers can deploy any app on any edge hardware, including the Agora platform, with no IT skills needed in the field with an unparalleled out-of-the-box experience. This zero-touch deployment and provisioning significantly simplify securely connecting to the Agora edge AI and IoT platform as well as every other desired cloud or on-premises system to begin understanding business value. “This collaboration capitalizes on the strengths of both companies,” said Said Ouissal, founder and CEO of ZEDEDA. “Agora has extensive domain expertise in maximizing operating efficiency and productivity in the oil and gas and renewable energy industries, while ZEDEDA's infrastructure base provides stability and interoperability for customers to future-proof their deployments.” ZEDEDA's cloud-based orchestration solution assists energy customers in modernizing their processes so that legacy workloads like SCADA, DCS, HMI, and Historian will coexist with modern containerized systems like AI and ML. The solution makes use of the Linux Foundation's open-source EVE-OS, which avoids vendor lock-in and unifies an open ecosystem of hardware, software, and services. Any deployment needs to prioritize security, which is supported by ZEDEDA's industry-leading zero-trust security model that spans silicon to the cloud. This gives customers the confidence to connect edge assets to Agora's platform and any other on-premises or a cloud-based backend that might be needed. “Together, Agora and ZEDEDA are helping oilfield operators to improve the efficiency of their activities by decreasing carbon footprints and minimizing health and safety risks, while also improving productivity and lowering operational costs,” said Sujit Kumar, Director of Agora Venture. “We are building an intelligent computing layer around legacy equipment on the operating site itself using AI, data, and domain science.” Agora will sell and deliver ZEDEDA's leading orchestration solution through its Agora Marketplace, an ecosystem of oil and gas applications that enables operators to reap the benefits of edge intelligence from desktop or mobile-based devices, as a preferred ZEDEDA partner. About ZEDEDA ZEDEDA, the leader in distributed edge orchestration, provides visibility, control, and support for edge computing deployments. Customers can deploy and manage any app on any hardware at scale, as well as connect to any cloud or on-premises systems, with ZEDEDA. Distributed edge solutions require a diverse set of technologies and domain expertise, and ZEDEDA provides customers with an open, vendor-agnostic orchestration framework that breaks down silos and provides the agility and futureproofing needed as connected operations evolve. Customers will now orchestrate intelligent applications at the distributed edge to obtain valuable insights, make real-time decisions, and maximize operating efficiency. ZEDEDA is a venture-backed Silicon Valley firm headquartered in San Jose, California, with teams in Bangalore and Pune, India, as well as Berlin, Germany. About Agora Agora is the artificial intelligence partner for oilfield operators who want to fully use the potential of edge computing and IoT. Agora provides edge AI and IoT solutions to the oilfield by integrating decades of domain experience with an agile approach. Agora is a company backed by Schlumberger, the world's leading provider of digital solutions and innovative technologies that enable global energy industry efficiency and sustainability.
