EdgeX Foundry Grows Ecosystem with New Members

  • aicas GmbH, CATAI-UNESCO, Irish Manufacturing Research, Sixgill and Zephyr Project join the 60+ collaborating member companies that are committed to IoT interoperability

    SAN FRANCISCO – December 19, 2017EdgeX Foundry, an open source project building a common interoperability framework to facilitate an ecosystem for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing, today announces five new members: acias GmbH, CATAI-UNESCO, Irish Manufacturing Research, Sixgill and the Zephyr Project. These organizations join the more than 60 members that broadly represent the IoT landscape providing products and services supporting analytics, visualization, sensors, security and manageability, among others.

    Hosted by The Linux Foundation, EdgeX Foundry is a collaborative effort dedicated to accelerating IoT deployments across industrial and enterprise use cases. With EdgeX, developers can quickly and easily build, deploy, run and scale Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions. It enables interoperability across tools and solutions and delivers flexibility and security.

    “The EdgeX community members are geographically diverse but have continuously come together to collaborate to create an interoperable platform that can work with any hardware, operating system and application framework,” said Philip DesAutels, PhD, Senior Director of IoT at The Linux Foundation. “We are excited to welcome these new members and work closely with them to build out and support an ecosystem for IIoT solutions.”

    EdgeX Foundry has made significant progress since its launch in April this year with more than 150 people from around the world joining face-to-face meetings to align on project goals, develop working groups and identify project maintainers and committers across key functional areas. The project also created resources designed to help onboard new developers to the project such as Tech Talks, templates and starter guides. Additional information about these resources, upcoming EdgeX Foundry meetings and how to participate is available at https://wiki.edgexfoundry.org.

    aicas GmbH

    “aicas is excited to join EdgeX Foundry and support and integrate its microservices architecture with our framework, lightweight process model, ahead-of-time compiler, hard real-time garbage collector and runtime, and Java bytecode multilanguage support,” said David Beberman, Chief Marketing Officer for acias GmbH.


    “Devoted since 1982 to the innovation and AI in medicine, CATAI-UNESCO is enforcing the urgent demand to widespread Health 4.0 for the humanization of healthcare,” said Prof. Dr. O. Ferrer Roca, UNESCO Chair of Telemedicine in the CATAI Association. “This will only be possible if we integrate IoT to promote universal preventive and participative medicine. The essential infrastructure based on the EdgeX framework will provide less complex and standardized small health data (SHD) exchange.”

    Irish Manufacturing Research

    “Irish Manufacturing Research is delighted to contribute to the EdgeX Foundry project and work on an open source full featured and secured IIoT platform for the manufacturing industry,” said John Delaney, Principal Investigator for Irish Manufacturing Research. “Ensuring interoperability and scalability at the edge while supporting legacy systems is a key enabler on the digitization roadmap for both small and large industrial enterprises.”


    “Edge computing and edge decision services are cornerstones in our universal sensor data platform at Sixgill. We consider edge services critical to helping enterprises realize the full potential of IoT, particularly for real-time operations,” said Elizabeth Shonnard, VP Product at Sixgill, LLC. “We’re excited to join EdgeX Foundry, pursuing a shared vision of data and device-agnostic systems that are interoperable and easily adopted to accelerate IoT development and enable highly responsive, sensing applications.”

    Zephyr Project

    “In February 2018, the Zephyr Project will celebrate its two-year anniversary of being a collaborative open-source micro-controller operating system,” said Geoff Thorpe, Security Architect for NXP and Chair of Zephyr Governing Board. “EdgeX Foundry proposes a welcome step towards harmonizing and generalizing the fragmented set of technologies in today’s IoT, and does so in an open and platform-neutral manner. This could not be more consistent with the ideals of the Zephyr project, and we’re delighted to be part of this collaborative effort.”

    EdgeX Roadmap

    The EdgeX Technical Steering Committee has established a bi-annual release roadmap that demonstrates a long-term strategy to provide a product-quality open source foundation for interoperable commercial differentiation. The project is also working towards improved performance, lower start-up times and a reduction in the overall footprint via alternative Go Lang and C-based implementations of key EdgeX microservices. A preview of a Go Lang implementation is targeted for early 2018 with initial testing promising an order of magnitude smaller footprint than the current Java baseline.

    EdgeX Foundry’s next major release, “California,” is targeted for Spring 2018. California will be a key step in EdgeX Foundry’s commitment to evolve the framework to support the requirements for deployment in business-critical IIoT applications. In addition to general improvements, planned features for the California release include baseline APIs and reference implementations for security and manageability value-add.

Tmux Commands

screen and tmux

A comparison of the features (or more-so just a table of notes for accessing some of those features) for GNU screen and BSD-licensed tmux.

The formatting here is simple enough to understand (I would hope). ^ means ctrl+, so ^x is ctrl+x. M- means meta (generally left-alt or escape)+, so M-x is left-alt+x

It should be noted that this is no where near a full feature-set of either group. This - being a cheat-sheet - is just to point out the most very basic features to get you on the road.

Trust the developers and manpage writers more than me. This document is originally from 2009 when tmux was still new - since then both of these programs have had many updates and features added (not all of which have been dutifully noted here).
