New ioTium OT-Edge Bridges Edge and Cloud Computing by Moving Applications to Data; Allows Mission Critical Data to Reside On-Premise in Industrial and Manufacturing Environments

Santa Clara, Calif. April 4, 2018 – ioTium, the first commercially deployed secure Edge-Cloud infrastructure company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), today announced the availability of ioTium OT-Edge. With deployments in Fortune 500 organizations, ioTium OT-Edge is the first edge-cloud infrastructure solution built on remotely managed Kubernetes; the popular and widely adopted open source system for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications. The unique offering is designed for brownfield industrial and manufacturing environments to embrace the benefits of Industry 4.0.

ioTium OT-Edge enables mission-critical data to reside on-premise when data must be kept locally to address compliance, security, latency or other practical concerns. With ioTium OT-Edge, applications are moved – not the data. With a single click from ioTium’s cloud-based industrial app store, applications can now be deployed at scale, across the edge. This enables a substantial reduction in OPEX costs associated with costly local management and manual upgrades at the edge.

“Our innovative Network-as-a-Service (OT-Net) solution made its mark on industrial organizations across multiple vertical markets with its ability to simplify all deployment complexity related to securely and rapidly moving data from brownfield industrial assets to the cloud,” said Ron Victor, founder, and CEO of ioTium. “With real industrial deployments in multiple verticals, we’ve gained unique understanding of the problems on the factory floor and have recognized scenarios where data simply can’t be moved without significant cost or risk. This is how our ioTium OT-Edge solution was born.”

Industrial environments are unique in both the type and volume of data generated. In some instances, movement of data to the cloud, while beneficial for industrial operations, would violate international guidelines for data privacy and security. In others, the sheer volume of data and the bandwidth it would consume makes movement too expensive. And in most cases, latency matters. Mission critical industrial environments often need immediate responses at physical asset points that would be slowed by access to the cloud. The idea of moving applications to the data itself has always been appealing to industrial organizations, however, has proven to be too costly and time consuming to implement – until now.

ioTium OT-Edge is designed to quickly and cost-effectively move applications to where industrial data resides. The solution eliminates the need for IT resources onsite, allowing operations to be conducted remotely while software continues to run at the edge next to the machine. Its biggest value is its ability to eliminate deployment complexity and reduce the significant overhead of additional networking and IT staff needed for onsite application deployment and continued maintenance.

“Kubernetes has been widely adopted because it solves the problem of deployment and management of applications but is not remotely manageable on its own across the WAN. We have created the ability to manage application pods remotely for IIoT at scale,” noted ioTium CTO Sri Rajagopal. “With our OT-Edge offering, we’re taking Kubernetes to the shop floor, making it truly applicable to the unique needs of the IIoT and helping organizations to escape the confines of vendor lock-in.”

ioTium OT-Edge is unique because it decouples application development from large-scale deployment. Instead of forcing proprietary Software Development Kits (SDKs), agents and tools, OT-Edge leverages microservices based on Dockerized applications: lightweight, stand-alone, executable packages of software that include everything needed to run from code to settings. Organizations are able to design each service the way they want it without being forced to work within the confines of one vendor’s proprietary SDK.

“IoTium and Relevant have a shared vision for IIoT and the future of smart buildings that can truly realize maximum workplace effectiveness and satisfaction,” said Ron Victor, founder and CEO of IoTium. “IoTium has a proven track record of solving deployment complexities and security for the building automation industry to enable smarter, more sustainable buildings at lower costs. We’re not just enabling organizations to eliminate expensive truck rolls and onsite technicians, we’re allowing for the secure deployment of IIoT solutions.”

Until now, deployment complexity and security concerns have caused a widespread lag in the adoption of IIoT. Traditional Information Technology (IT) methodologies involving command line interfaces (CLIs), usernames and passwords; changes to enterprise proxy and firewall policies; are not conducive to deployment at scale in the realm of the Operations Technology (OT) professionals tasked with the care and maintenance of traditionally closed industrial systems. Industrial IoT requires connecting air-gapped, unconnected, mission-critical control and automation systems to applications that reside in the public, private and hybrid cloud.

“Relevant Solutions, along with our strategic partners, brings centuries of combined experience to building automation and energy management,” said Scott K. Hoffmann, vice president of Building Solutions at Relevant. “We believe that buildings of the future will be designed, engineered and constructed to be exceptionally dependable, environmentally efficient and ergonomically friendly work environments. Attaining this means having building automation control systems that interconnect with every feature within a building. The challenge lies in digitizing legacy systems in a way that is both quickly scalable and secure.”

IoTium’s NaaS offering solves the fundamental industrial connectivity problem of “brownfield” environments embracing the promise of IIoT, helping them to achieve secure, remote connectivity at scale. IoTium’s patented One-Click technology enables organizations to securely deploy and manage a wide range of services for diverse industrial environments with the single click of a mouse.

Partnership Expands IoTium’s Presence in Canadian Market; Enables Yorkland Controls’ Customers to Overcome Adoption Barriers to Connect Building Automation Systems at Scale

Santa Clara, Calif. – September 13, 2017 – IoTium, the first secure network infrastructure company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), has expanded its presence in Canada through a strategic distribution alliance with Yorkland Controls, a leading provider of control systems and solutions headquartered in Ontario. Yorkland Controls will now offer the IoTium Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution as part of their complete portfolio of Building Automation Systems (BAS) products, enabling customers to remotely securely connect multiple commercial buildings with an array of sub-systems to the full range of applications that reside in public, private and hybrid clouds or datacenters. The IoTium NaaS solution enables Yorkland’s customers to gain unprecedented insights into the performance of their buildings without the need for costly truck-rolls, cumbersome usernames and passwords, or changes to existing enterprise IT firewall and proxy policies.

“The Canadian building automation market is eager to embrace the benefits of IIoT but has been slowed by concerns related to security and deployment complexities,” said Gerry Cellucci, Vice President of Yorkland Controls. “By adding the IoTium NaaS solution to our product portfolio, we’re enabling our customers and partners to overcome the barriers to IIoT adoption and securely deploy and manage a wide range of services for diverse building automation systems with the single click of a mouse. This will radically transform the way our customers do business.”

Industry analyst firm IDC estimates that the overall Canadian Internet of Things (IoT) market will be worth more than USD $4.9 billion in 2018. However, according to a Genpact Research Institute study, adoption has been hinged by security concerns and questions about IIoT integration with legacy systems. Adding to this is the fact that cloud computing infrastructure wasn’t fully realized in Canada until 2016, while it had been widely available in other countries for multiple years. To compete on a global scale, IIoT solutions must be more broadly available within Canada, a problem solved for the Canadian building automation market with the IoTium and Yorkland Controls distribution agreement.

“This alliance with Yorkland Controls gives us a direct line to support their customer base in adopting next generation building automation technologies,” said Ron Victor, founder and CEO of IoTium. “Yorkland Controls has been in the business for over 45 years, giving them a strong understanding of market needs.
