  • A flexible and scalable industrial IoT platform using Eclipse IoT projects

    The MeetUp will be held on Crowdcast and you will be able to watch the live stream directly from the Crowdcast link below. This is a virtual meetup occurring at 11AM Eastern Time (8AM Pacific Time, 5PM Central European Time). For help with your timezone calculation, refer to this: https://time.is/compare/1100_20_Nov_2019_in_ET/PT/CET JOIN THE WEBINAR HERE: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/nov20_19_virtualiot Join the conversation: #VirtualIoT ========== Description: IoT is evolving really quickly while the industry is holding back because of (cyber) security and thus requiring on-premise deployments. To create an industrial IoT platform, the concern from the industry has to be addressed. A lot of IoT platforms are available from public cloud providers which makes them unusable. Eclipse IoT projects enable to build an IIoT platform which can be deployed anywhere, from a private, airgapped installation on a bare metal server to private or public clouds. In this talk, we will show how we used Eclipse IoT projects like Hono and Ditto to build a flexible solution for our customers. We will show how we use kubernetes as a runtime environment going from small single server installations to larger multitenant installations. ========= Speaker: Bob Claerhout, Software Developer at Aloxy

  • Eclipse Cyclone DDS: Data Sharing in the IoT Age | Virtual IoT

    The MeetUp will be held on Crowdcast and you will be able to watch the live stream directly from the Crowdcast link below. This is a virtual meetup occurring at 11AM Eastern Time (8AM Pacific Time, 5PM Central European Time). For help with your timezone calculation, refer to this: https://time.is/compare/1100_17_Sep_2019_in_ET/PT/CET JOIN THE WEBINAR HERE: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/sep17_19_virtualiot Join the conversation: #VirtualIoT ========== Description: Making the right data available at the right time and at the right place, and doing so securely, efficiently and whilst promoting interoperability, is a key need for virtually any IoT application. After all, IoT is about leveraging access to data to improve the ability to react, manage, predict and preserve a cyber-physical system. The Data Distribution Service (DDS) is a standard for interoperable, secure and efficient data sharing, used at the foundation of some of the most challenging Consumer and Industrial IoT applications, such as Smart Cities, Autonomous Vehicles, Smart Grids, Smart Farming, Home Automation and Connected Medical Devices. Eclipse Cyclone DDS is a very performant and compact implementation of the DDS standard, outperforming most, perhaps even all, of its commercial and open-source competitors. For any project where size, latency or throughput matter — most, therefore — it is worth looking at. In this presentation we will introduce the key concepts and some example uses cases of DDS, provide a quick intro that to using Cyclone DDS and share the Cyclone DDS development roadmap. ========= Speaker: Erik Boasson, Senior Technologist at ADLINK Technology Inc. Erik Boasson is a member of the Technology Office of ADLINK Technology. His focus is on DDS, its applications and future developments, and currently his efforts are mostly towards developing Eclipse Cyclone DDS. He has more than two decades of experience in the field, starting at Hollandse Signaalapparaten BV in the ’90s where data-centric programming was invented. His implementation of the SPLICE architecture there has proven itself in several contexts, including as a tool to convince the US DoD to mandate data-centric systems.

  • YAKS: A Distributed and Heterogeneous Key-value Store for IoT

    Join: The meetup will be held on Google Hangouts/YouTube Live and you will be able to watch the live stream directly on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gPznQm2jmc ========== Timezones: This is a virtual Meetup occurring at 8 AM Pacific Time (11 AM Eastern, 5 PM Central European Time). For help with your timezone calculation, refer to this (https://time.is/compare/). ========== Description: Key-value stores are widely used in cloud computing, thanks to their ability to efficiently store and serve data with high availability and to scale horizontally within a cluster. With the rise of edge computing, there is an increasing need for keeping data close to where it is produced while still having the ability to transparently access it from anywhere in the network. The main forces driving toward this decentralization are: • Scalability: as soon as multiple cloud regions are required to serve applications it becomes more and more challenging to keep location transparency while avoiding data replication/duplication. • Cost: in some applications the cost of connectivity does not makes cloud-centric approaches unfeasible. • Privacy: some applications need to keep their data in a private and secure infrastructure • Latency: some application requires a very low latency that is not compatible with the latencies usually seen to access the cloud. In this context, we introduce YAKS which is actually not « Yet Another Key-value Store » per se, but a framework offering a unified view similar to a key-value store of distributed and heterogeneous data storages. A YAKS infrastructure allows the deployment of various data storages at any point of the system (cloud, edge or in the devices themselves) and to query or subscribe to the data from any point of the system in a location-transparent way. YAKS is the data distribution technology used by the Eclipse Fog05 project. ========= Speaker: Julien Enoch, Senior Technologist at ADLINK Technology Inc.

The scope of the solutions that can be provided is limitless. We picked a specific area in an IoT lighting solution. Our goal was to provide a solution with which one can manage, control, monitor and maintain millions of light fixtures remotely through a web browser or a mobile app. With our knowledge of building a smart water meter solution ground-up, we wanted to architect an end-to-end solution that is flexible, robust, standardized and well maintained for this lighting solution we conceived. We followed the Eclipse IoT software evolution and found it appropriate to incorporate it into our software architecture. We implemented our solution using two main Eclipse projects, namely Kapua and Kura. Our end-to-end architecture involves these two modules at its core, forming the most essential parts of our lighting solution. ========= Speakers: Narender Ramireddy (Founder/CTO, Swensa): Narender has more than two decades of experience in building and delivering software solutions.
