"Container Technology Energizes Edge Computing"

Modern VxWorks Uses Containers for Intelligent Edge Real-Time Solutions

As the complexity of applications and their supporting infrastructures create new potential attack vectors for increasingly sophisticated hackers to exploit, containers in embedded systems offer a means to deliver responsive, secure application delivery to the intelligent edge. With these capabilities, aerospace and defense organizations, energy providers, large-scale manufacturers, and medical organizations can take advantage of low-latency, high-bandwidth performance for the most challenging applications.

In an article for ARC Advisory Group titled “Industrial Edge Containers,” Harry Forbes noted, “Thinking about these new capabilities and how they might be used, it seems to me that in the longer term, today’s sharp border between embedded systems and edge computing will become much blurrier. Indeed, today’s real-time embedded applications may eventually become a special case within a broader set of edge applications that are containerized and orchestrated very much the way cloud apps are deployed today.”
