VMware Takes IoT Management to the Cloud

VMware is taking to the cloud with VMware Pulse IoT Center, its edge infrastructure and lifecycle management platform, which it plans to offer as a service in conjunction with partners later this year.

In addition to the move to the cloud, VMware Pulse IoT Center 2.0 enhances "fine-grained management of the entire lifecycle of IoT/Edge devices, connected sensors and applications," starting with device registration and on-boarding, according to a post on the VMware blog published Tuesday, signed by Mimi Spier, VMware vice president for the Internet of Things business.

SaaS services will be hosted by VMware now, with VMware Cloud Provider partners providing hosting later this year, VMware says.

In addition to registration and onboarding, the VMware IoT service provides security, systems management, over-the-air updates, container management and alerts and notifications.

About the Author(s)

Mitch Wagner

Executive Editor, Light Reading

San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.

He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.

Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.

Beats: Software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), IP networking, and colored foods (such as 'green rice').
