Acromove Inc. introduced a solution and ecosystem collaboration around IBM Cloud Computing AI, 5G, and IoT applications that runs seamlessly on Acromove’s product portfolio of Edge Computing “Data Center in-a Box” (DCiB) building blocks. The collaboration offers a new computing platform to enable clients and partners to deploy and manage enterprise grade solutions from the cloud all the way to IoT devices at the far edge of a complex and geo-distributed architecture. IBM’s Edge Application Manager automates and enables AI, analytics and IoT workloads to be securely deployed and remotely managed, delivering real-time analysis and insight at scale – up to 10,000 devices simultaneously. Now container-based workloads can be built, managed, and deployed to the most appropriate locations for optimal performance. The Acromove portfolio of building blocks includes ServerPack Edge™, BladePack Edge™, and NetPack Edge™:
- ServerPack Edge™ is a single node 16-core Xeon “DCiB” that comes in variations including nVidia Tesla GPU, 10-100GbE fiber or copper ports, an 8 port 10GbE switch, AcroTrace™, a WiFi hotspot, 4G modems, and up to 240TB of SSD storage.
- BladePack Edge™ is a “DCiB” consisting of dual node Xeon 16-core Xeon blades combined with dual nVidia Tesla GPUs, an 8-port 10G switch, and up to 90TB nVME storage, AcroTrace™, WiFi hotspot and 4G modems.
- NetPack Edge™ is a portable ruggedized Ethernet multiport networking device that includes three separate switches that come in 10GbE, 40/56GbE and 100GbE versions to enable Leaf-Spine network architecture and AcroTrace™ remote security system.
