Data security isn’t just a good idea; it’s a regulatory requirement in critical infrastructure such as power plants. “In many industries, data never goes north of the firewall,” Tom Arthur, CEO of IoT software developer Dianomic says. “All of that operational data is staying south of everything. That is generally all about security.”

Fledge was first developed by Dianomic Systems and is one of the projects under the LF Edge consortium. An open-source IIoT framework, Fledge us used to collect and process data from sensors to leverage machine learning models to eliminate data silos and create a unified method for developing, managing and securing IIoT applications.

Linux Foundation’s Fledge Project a recommended edge framework for industrial users, system integrators and equipment suppliers.

The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today announced the launch of LF Edge, an umbrella organization to establish an open, interoperable framework for edge computing independent of hardware, silicon, cloud, or operating system.

LF Edge is already supported by a strong roster of industry-leading founding members: (Premier) Arm, AT&T, Baidu, Dell EMC, Dianomic Systems Inc., Ericsson, HP Inc., HPE, Huawei, IBM, Intel, inwinStack, Juniper Networks, MobiledgeX, Netsia, Nokia Solutions, NTT, OSIsoft, Qualcomm Technologies, Radisys, Red Hat, Samsung Electronics, Seagate Technology, Tencent, WindRiver, Wipro, ZEDEDA; and (General) Advantech Co., Alleantia srl, Beechwoods Software Inc., Canonical Group Limited, CertusNet, CloudPlugs Inc., Concept Reply, DATA AHEAD AG, Enigmedia, EpiSensor, Foghorn Systems Inc., ForgeRock US Inc.,, Hangzhou EMQ Technologies Co. Ltd., IOTech Systems Ltd., IoTium, KMC, Linaro, Mainflux, Mocana, NetFoundry, Packet, Pluribus Networks, RackN, Redis Labs, VaporIO, Vitro Technology Corp., Volterra Inc., Wanxiang Group; and (Associate) Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC), Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT), Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), Infrastructure Masons, Inc., and Project Haystack.

Dianomic, OSIsoft announce FogLAMP and the FogLAMP community at OSIsoft’s PI World conference in San Francisco. Together we address the complexity and fragmentation issues developers and integrators face when building and deploying today’s IIoT.

The collaboration with Dianomic is part of OSIsoft’s expanding edge strategy as well as part of an effort to bring the treasure trove of open source development tools to the PI System community.
