Snappy Core unlocks IoT value within the Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series

Canonical

on 21 October 2015

Yesterday marked the launch of the Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series, a purpose-built IoT gateway designed to work in the most extreme conditions and to enable customers to perform analytics on the edge of the network; pre-transmitting them to the cloud. It has many mounting and connectivity options which enables it to be used in previously inaccessible areas to collect data from a multitude of sensor types. The anticipated launch date for the gateway will be mid-December 2015.

While reliable, purpose-built devices designed specifically for IoT are an important part of the solution, it is equally important to have software that optimizes up-time and can be updated to dispense with any security concerns. That’s why Dell has chosen to offer snappy Ubuntu core as an option on the Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series.

“We’re excited to offer Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series customers the benefits of snappy Ubuntu Core,” says Jason Shepherd, Director, IoT Strategy and Partnerships. “Features such as the ability to automatically roll back to the last known working version of the OS provides developers with the peace of mind they need to stay focused on collecting, analysing and securing their data.”

“One of the biggest challenges facing developers in the IoT space is maintaining focus and reducing complexity,” said Mark Shuttleworth, Founder of Canonical and Ubuntu. “We are very happy that Dell customers will be able to leverage Ubuntu Core in the Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series – making it easier to do business.”

The Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series with snappy Ubuntu Core will be available mid-December 2015. For more information, visit www.dell.com/IoT
