Leveraging Linux for Energy Smarts, Reducing Risk with IoT Standards
Leveraging Linux for Energy Smarts, Reducing Risk with IoT Standards
If the embedded developer is using an Intel Quark or the next generation smaller class product to power an IoT device, one of the biggest problems they face today is which IoT communication protocol to adopt. Dozens of new wired and wireless schema are competing to own the network, data and physical layers. Several consortia have emerged to describe new reference architectures for communicating between IoT devices and clouds. And there are many solid legacy protocols with strong track records. From the developer’s perspective, it may feel like the risk is so high of choosing the wrong protocol that it might as well be a no-fly zone.

AWS helped Haven power increase their database ability
AWS helped Haven power increase their database ability
Haven’s focus on customer service has fuelled a rapid level of growth since its launch in 2006. For its first five years, the company ran on a hybrid infrastructure that was made up of a mixture of onsite and offsite servers. Haven’s systems were not as flexible as it would have liked, with limited support for technology testing and development. The company lacked a complete business continuity and disaster recovery (DR) plan, and needed a technology infrastructure that could both keep up with demand and help drive further growth.Haven had three options: getting a DR solution through the data center of its parent company, Drax Group; going through a third-party re-location disaster recovery service; or moving to the cloud.

Open Fog Consortium
Open Fog Consortium
The growth in IoT is explosive, impressive – and unsustainable under current architectural approaches. Many IoT deployments face challenges related to latency, network bandwidth, reliability and security, which cannot be addressed in cloud-only models. Fog computing adds a hierachy of elements between the cloud and endpoint devices, and between devices and gateways, to meet these challenges in a high performance, open and interoperable way.The OpenFog Consortium work is done by committees and workgroups focused on specific tasks aligned to our mission. This work includes technical work; influencing standards development through liaisons with other organizations; testbeds; promoting innovation and industry interest in fog computing; and industry education.The goal of the OpenFog Consortium is to create an open reference architecture for fog computing, build operational models and testbeds, define and advance technology, educate the market and promote business development through a thriving OpenFog ecosystem.The work of the OpenFog Consortium is done by its members, with specific deliverables organized by the Working Committees and Working Groups.Our goals are related to the technologies, innovation and market potential for fog computing. On the technical front, OpenFog Consortium workgroups are creating an open architecture for fog computing that is necessary to enable interoperability and scalability. We are working with our academia and research members to identify, share and apply best practices in advanced technologies around fog computing. Through a diverse set of members, we are creating an environment where different perspectives and requirements will foster innovation and wide interoperability within the industry. Just as cloud has created new business models, growth and industries, fog computing can eventually do the same.

Intelligent Urban Water Supply
Intelligent Urban Water Supply
Intelligent Urban Water Supply Management refers to a cloud service that provides a fully integrated multi-function, multi-service, multi-role and multi-tenant solution.Water, after air, is the second most critical natural resource our lives depend upon. Maintaining adequate clean and safe water supply to urban residents has become ever-challenging. This is especially so under the pressure from the rapid urbanization of the populations in developing countries and increasingly severe constraints of available water resources in many parts of the world. The situation is exacerbated by the inadequate and aging equipment deployed in the water supply infrastructure and the ineffectiveness in the management of the operations of the equipment. The consequence of these conditions impacts to the health and quality of lives of millions of urban residents. 
Factory Operations Visibility & Intelligence

Factory Operations Visibility and Intelligence (FOVI) is designed to collect sensor data generated on the factory floor, production-equipment logs, production plans and statistics, operator information, and to integrate all this and other related information in the cloud. In this way, it can be used to bring visibility to production facilities, analyze and predict outcomes, and support better decisions for improvements.
Industrial Edge Computing
Industrial Edge Computing
Edge (fog) computing shifts computing applications, data, and services away from centralized servers to the extremes of a network. This enables analytics and knowledge generation to occur at the source of the data. Industrial IoT companies face challenges turning machine data into business intelligence. Existing cloud-based technologies do not solve problems of data analytics, software deployment, or updates and security for remote devices. Edge or fog computing solves the problem of accessing large amounts of machine-generated data by processing data at the edge of the network and converting it into actionable, useful business information. In an Intelligent Industrial Fog, software can be deployed at various points in the network to not only automate monitoring and control, but also to apply embedded intelligent agents that can adjust device behaviors in relation to ongoing performance variables, reduce running costs by reducing power consumption during off-cycles, or even detect imminent failures and notify technicians to perform preventative maintenance. Companies use edge computing technologies to analyze the data locally, sending only most important data to a centralised cloud. This reduces data transmission and storage costs while also allowing real-time analysis and action. Edge computing also allows remote software deployment and secure M2M communication. Edge computing leverages resources that are not continuously connected to a network, such as laptops, smartphones, tablets and sensors. It covers a wide range of technologies, from wireless sensor networks and mobile data acquisition to cooperative distributed peer-to-peer ad hoc networking and processing. Import IoT applications include remote cloud services, distributed data storage and retrieval, and self-healing networks.
