by Developer.com Staff

The open source effort will focus on Internet of Things standards.

The Linux Foundation is starting a new open source Internet of Things (IoT) project called EdgeX Foundry. The goal of the effort will be to standardize edge computing for IoT deployments. “Success in Internet of Things is dependent on having a healthy ecosystem that can deliver interoperability and drive digital transformation,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director of The Linux Foundation. “EdgeX Foundry is aligning market leaders around a common framework, which will drive IoT adoption and enable businesses to focus on developing innovative use cases that impact the bottom line.”

Dell, a founding member of the project, has contributed its FUSE microservices project to EdgeX Foundry. Other founding members include Ubuntu, Modius, The Object Management Group, VMware and Cloud of Things.
