LONDON, UK. and STOCKHOLM, SWE. (July 12, 2022). Avassa and Sunlight are two of the four vendors named 2022 Gartner® Cool Vendors in Edge Computing. They are partnering to deliver a complete software stack uniquely created for secure, efficient, and easy management of edge environments.
Sunlight.io, a provider of robust and secure edge-native software infrastructure solutions, and Avassa, a provider of an innovative application orchestration platform for the edge, today announce a partnership. Their combined solutions create a complete software stack that makes edge environments secure, efficient, and easy for application teams to manage. These environments can include retail stores, hospitals, factories, call centers, or any other premises where data processing happens locally, and compute resources are distributed across a large number of locations.
Carl Moberg, CTO, and co-founder of Avassa comments on the partnership: “To succeed with edge computing initiatives, you need robust infrastructure to run your applications on — and also an efficient tool for orchestration and monitoring of those applications. Combining our application-centric edge orchestration platform with Sunlight’s state-of-the-art hyperconverged edge solutions, enterprises get a solid and secure edge orchestration solution built to delight application teams — and strengthen their innovation power through edge initiatives.”
Today, a majority of enterprises across a variety of industries are deploying workloads running in distributed environments. Edge computing projects are increasingly common within verticals such as retail, manufacturing, energy, hospitality, public sector, logistics, banking, and real estate. Avassa and Sunlight together provide a solution for running and managing the edge infrastructure and applications in an efficient, secure, and reliable manner.
“We’re on a mission to make edge application infrastructure as simple as possible,” says Andy Brewerton, Chief Strategy Officer of Sunlight. “In an ideal world, enterprises would both be able to consume their edge computing infrastructure ‘as a service’ while also easily deploying and managing their applications from a central, remote location. Partnering with Avassa makes this edge application orchestration possible at scale.”
Just because applications run at the edge does not mean your company needs a new operations stack. Avassa empowers companies to bridge the gap between modern containerized applications development and operations, and distributed edge infrastructure. With their application orchestration platform for the edge, Avassa enables businesses to manage the lifecycle of edge applications efficiently, securely, and at the speed of software. Founded in 2020 and based in Stockholm, Sweden, Avassa aims to unlock the cloud operating model for edge applications everywhere and was named a Gartner® Cool Vendor in Edge Computing 2022.
