Ayla IoT device agent to be embedded into AWS Greengrass software

Ayla Networks, a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform for manufacturers, is to support AWS Greengrass. The aim is for this move to extend AWS to devices so that they can act locally on the data they generate, while still using the cloud for management, analytics, and other application services.

“The AWS Greengrass launch furthers the collaboration between AWS and Ayla,” said David Friedman, CEO and co-founder, Ayla Networks. “Industrial IoT companies are hungry to gain the business transformation benefits that IoT delivers. Together, AWS Greengrass and Ayla are providing strong value that will enable more enterprises to achieve benefits such as reduced operating expenses, increased topline growth, better-quality products, expanded markets and enhanced customer relationships.”

For many industrial manufacturing operations, the need to achieve mission-critical responsiveness or transmit sensitive data means doing IoT computing and communications at the edge rather than in the cloud.

The AWS Greengrass software is designed to give enterprises the flexibility to deploy end-to-end IoT solutions however they wish, from the edge to the cloud.

As one of the first AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners to support AWS Greengrass, Ayla is integrating its IoT device agent software into the AWS Greengrass software, providing IoT edge device management capabilities that include device discovery, routing, provisioning and firmware updates.
