Ai-MicroCloud™ for Edge Operators

Participate in the AI/ML Ecosystem to Increase Revenues

Overview: 

  

With an estimated 80 ZB of data generation at the Edge in 2021 and longer term projections of one trillion nodes to be deployed at the Edge by 2035, enterprise-wide digital transformation efforts to gain meaningful predictive insights, using AI/ML modeling brings unique opportunities.

Edge ecosystems are constantly evolving and today many are collations of multiple organizations, offering different services to provide an end-to-end solution. This ecosystem includes a diverse set of companies, viz 5G national carriers, rural telcos, edge infrastructure orchestrators, low latency internet providers, IoT solution providers, AI/ML service providers and data center & Edge operators. Edge computing creates a sprawling data footprint across a distributed architecture and requires cloud native (container-based) solutions that support heterogeneity of location, remote management and autonomy at scale; enables developers; and integrates well with core processing (in the cloud or data center). IoT devices are generating massive amounts of data that must be processed in real time by AI inference engines at the Edge to enable quick decision making. With the advent of 5G networks, autonomous edge infrastructure orchestration and availability of low-latency internet backbone services, the need for an integrated AI and analytics platform is crucial now.

Intelligent Edge Platform:

 

Zeblok Computational and NodeWeaver are partnering to offer an “Intelligent Edge” Platform, which integrates NodeWeaver’s Edge infrastructure orchestration, and Zeblok’s turnkey Ai-MicroCloud™, a comprehensive enterprise solution for AI/ML model development, training and deployment at the Edge. Zeblok’s Ai-MicroCloud™ is an enterprise-ready turnkey AI Platform-as-a-Service, including curated algorithms, accelerated data lake, seamless high-performance computing (HPC) orchestration and runtime environment, that helps data scientists and data engineers develop, customize, and deploy AI projects quickly, generate new insights and enhance decision-making capabilities.

 

Enterprises can now benefit from the following features

  • Autonomously provisioned edge infrastructure

  • Secure networking, with zero trust at Edge locations

  • Turnkey high-performance computing (HPC) orchestration for AI workloads

  • Marketplace for proven, curated AI algorithms​

This solution enables data scientists to be productive and IT operations to be scalable and efficient, saving time and money.
