Red Hat and Eurotech launch end-to-end, fully open source IoT cloud platform project

Red Hat, Inc, and Eurotech, a announced the launch of a new, open source Eclipse Foundation project to manage IoT edge devices, from connectivity and configuration to application lifecycle.

The co-sponsored project, Eclipse Kapua, combines with the existing Eclipse Kura project to offer IoT developers and end users an open platform for end-to-end IoT implementations, helping them to avoid costly, proprietary lock-in and accelerate community-driven development.

The collaboration between Red Hat and Eurotech represents a significant boost to open source IoT solutions and marks the development of the first end-to-end open source IoT platform. Eurotech is now contributing its existing code base for its Everyware Cloud IoT cloud integration platform to the Kapua project, which is in addition to the company’s past contribution of its Everyware Software Framework (ESF) under the Kura project.

Both Red Hat and Eurotech, leaders in the Eclipse IoT community, plan to participate actively in Kapua and Kura, developing and testing code, collaborating with other contributors, and integrating existing open source projects that are integral to IoT solutions (e.g. Apache Camel, ActiveMQ, Drools, etc.).

Eurotech ReliaGATE 20-26, powered by Red Hat

An essential component of the platform is the intelligent gateway, designed to address the problems of scalability, performance latency, reliability and security inherent to complex IoT implementations. Earlier this week, Eurotech announced the ReliaGATE 20-26, powered by Red Hat, an intelligent gateway that provides data and device management services for IoT deployments encompassing hundreds of thousands of devices.

By pushing computing to the network edge, the intelligent gateway can remove the need to transmit masses of data back to a central datacenter for processing. Instead, essential data aggregation, data transformation, integration, and routing are handled by the gateway closer to physical devices, triggering business rules that can automate machine operations in near real-time.
