The case for Edge

Advances in technology are changing all aspects of the way we live and work - whether for quick service restaurants (QSR), retail, energy or manufacturing. We are generating and processing more data than ever before and this needs managing and processing in near real time - often close to the source and in harsh environments. With HCI at the edge, you can:


Run applications and perform related processing tasks closer to the cellular customer to reduce network congestion for applications, such as streaming, gaming and AR/VR split rendering.


Efficiently deploy small clusters throughout your factory for predictive maintenance, fault detection, real-time equipment health monitoring, and production capacity information.


Deliver a hyper-personalised retail experience by deploying video surveillance, temperature monitoring, retail analytics, POS and virtual showrooms at the edge.


Keep populations safe and secure by processing video surveillance and applying AI at source to alert and communicate incidents as and when they occur.


Maintain consistent energy supplies and meet demands for all energy sources, including remote and hostile locations, by applying predictive maintenance and drone surveillance at source.


Monitor crop integrity and quickly flag environmental factors affecting yields over vast and inaccessible areas with drones, robots or sensors. Apply AI for fast decision making directly from the source.

We rearchitected the hypervisor for the Edge

Sunlight was born out of a collaboration with Arm in 2013 to build a lightweight hypervisor for low-power processors. Traditional virtualisation was too ‘heavy’, so we rearchitected the hypervisor to enable applications to run as if they were running on baremetal.

From this we created the Sunlight hyperconverged infrastructure stack (HCI) - consisting of NexVisor coupled with the latest advances in software defined storage and networking.

“Many enterprises would benefit from the simplicity of HCI at the edge, which combines compute, storage, networking and management into a single virtualized system to reduce complexity and increase scalability – whereas traditional HCI is too bloated – Sunlight’s tiny footprint makes it perfect for the task."


Managing Director

"With Sunlight we can deliver desktops at a level of performance that Citrix isn’t capable of. Developers demand high performance desktops and with Sunlight – they get that performance"
