Software framework enhances edge-to-cloud connectivity
Eurotech has introduced the 6.0 release of the Everyware Software Framework (ESF), which is designed to enhance its IoT Edge Framework’s edge and cloud connectivity capability.
ESF provides IoT connectivity to leading cloud platforms. The 6.0 release enabled the user to specify multiple Cloud Connections, each to a different endpoint, allowing for better portability of applications as connection configuration and switch among cloud providers become easier and code-free.
The new release also broadens the range of ESF’s natively supported field protocols. Customers developing applications will now have a wider range of edge connectivity options to communicate with their field assets.
ESF is the commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, which is the open source IoT Edge Framework for IoT Gateways to which Eurotech is the original contributor. The recently released 4.0 version of Eclipse Kura simplifies the plugging of new cloud connection implementations and brings up a restructuring of the networking part to make it more pluggable and expandable, in addition to new drivers and supported platforms, as well as improvements to usability and bug fixes.>
