Microsoft is growing support for Intelligent Edge with the availability of Azure IoT Edge on virtual machines (VMs). The tech giant aims to create an open and strong ecosystem and provide users choices in deploying their edge solution.Azure IoT Edge is a solution that brings cloud intelligence to the edge and allows users to act on data in real-time. Microsoft had made it generally available last year in June, and also open sourced the service on GitHub. This allows users to make changes to code and go for an open container approach for deploying Microsoft and third-party services across edge devices.
