Updates for the Edge - From Hours to Minutes - Sneak Preview

My name is Kat Cosgrove, and I’m a Developer Advocate at JFrog. Before that, I was an engineer on JFrog’s IoT team. Our goal is to bring DevOps to the edge, because it shouldn’t be as difficult to update these kinds of devices as it currently is. In pursuit of this goal, we found a lot of interesting solutions that we could bring into a CI/CD pipeline for embedded Linux devices, and eventually built a rather flashy proof of concept that put several of these solutions on display.

How LineMetrics Uses InfluxDB to Launch Its IoT Monitoring Platform

“What would it be like to have an asset monitoring solution that can be installed within minutes and is independent of all existing IT systems, without endangering existing processes?” LineMetrics was founded in 2012 in Haag, Austria, in response to questions just like this one. LineMetrics developed a complete real-time asset monitoring solution delivered through its end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) platform.

Sumo Logic and NIST team up to secure energy sector IoT

The energy industry used to operate on a simple hub-and-spoke model, in which large power plants would produce energy in a centralized location and distribute it out to consumers. Yet as solar, wind, and other small-scale renewable energy sources take hold in the market, that hub-and-spoke model is being replaced by a complex grid of interconnected devices.

Unleash your IoT Development tools with WSL

Francesco Buccoli, Microsoft Marco Dal Pino, SoftJam See how easily a set of Linux tools for IoT could be perfectly integrated in a development pipeline, as part of an industrial process that makes devices ready to be used. To achieve this, we'll leverage on some containerized solution hosted on Azure along with standard IoT industry tools, all driven by Visual Studio Code and GitHub.

Configuring a Custom Agent Check to Run on IoT Devices (Raspberry Pi) | Datadog Tips & Tricks

In this video, you'll learn how to create, configure, and deploy a custom check for your Datadog agent to run on a Raspberry Pi. The results are custom metrics sent into your Datadog account which track your service provider's network speeds over time.

Edge AI in a 5G world - part 4: How your business can benefit from 'smart cell towers'

In part 1 we talked about the industrial applications and benefits that 5G and fast compute at the edge will bring to AI products. In part 2 we went deeper into how you can benefit from this new opportunity. In part 3 we focused on the key technical barriers that 5G and Edge compute remove for AI applications. In this part we will summarise the IoT use cases that can benefit from smart cell towers and how they will help businesses focus their efforts on their key differentiating advantage.

The DevOps guide to IoT projects

Traditional development methods do not scale into the IoT sphere. Strong inter-dependencies and blurred boundaries among components in the edge device stack result in fragmentation, slow updates, security issues, increased cost, and reduced reliability of platforms. This reality places a major strain on IoT players who need to contend with varying cycles and priorities in the development stack, limiting their flexibility to innovate and introduce changes into their products, both on the hardware and software sides.

Self-Service Analytics for the Shop Floor [Part 2] - A Practical Example using MQTT

In the first part of this blog article, I introduced key concepts surrounding data ingestion for the industrial Internet of Things, the role and importance of metrics and self-services capabilities for shop floor personnel. So let's see how this looks in practice and how the knowledge of a process or control engineer can be turned into action.

IoT Devices Designed by the World's Largest Manufacturers Infected with Malware

Researchers at TrapX Security recently discovered three of the world's largest manufacturers with IoT devices running Windows 7 infected with malware in an alleged supply chain attack. The company identified a cryptocurrency miner on numerous IoT devices, including automatic guided vehicles, a smart TV and a printer. All of these attacks are said to be a part of the same campaign.
