Platform9 at the Edge Computing Expo North America 2023

Are you interested in learning more about edge computing and how it can transform your business? Do you want to hear from experts and industry leaders on the latest trends and best practices for edge deployments?

If you answered yes to these questions, then you should join us at the Edge Computing Expo North America 2023, taking place on May 17-18 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. This event will bring together over 2000 attendees and 100 speakers to explore the edge computing ecosystem and showcase real-world use cases across various industries.

Platform9 is the Edge Computing Track Sponsor

We are proud to announce that Platform9 is the edge computing track sponsor for this event. What this means is that we will be discussing several topics in our keynotes, panel discussion, and at our booth including:

  • The benefits and challenges of edge computing
  • The best practices and tools for managing edge infrastructure
  • The use cases and applications of edge computing
  • The future trends and opportunities of edge computing

According to Gartner, by 2025, three-quarters of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed at the edge – outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. This means that enterprises need to adopt a new approach to manage their distributed edge infrastructure and applications.

Join Bhaskar Gorti, CEO of Platform9, for an engaging keynote presentation and insightful panel discussion

One of the highlights of the event will be the keynote speech by our CEO Bhaskar Gorti, who will share his vision and insights on how edge computing can enable digital transformation and innovation for enterprises. He will also discuss how Platform9 can help you achieve zero-touch operations from edge to anywhere with our flexible platform that reduces ops cost and accelerates delivery of revenue-generating apps.

In addition, Bhaskar will also participate in a panel discussion with other industry experts on how to overcome the challenges of edge computing and how to leverage its potential for business growth and competitive advantage.

Platform9 edge computing solutions

According to Deloitte Insights, “Because edge computing has numerous deployment options, each involving a different slate of vendors and applications, an abstraction layer—that is, an edge-cloud management platform—can be used to reduce the complexity of administrating these disparate, heterogeneous environments.”

Platform9 provides an abstraction layer that simplifies edge operations for enhanced efficiency. Our unified infrastructure management platform allows you to manage virtual machines, containers, and bare metal across your data center, public cloud, and edge locations. With Platform9, you can:

  • Centrally manage thousands of edge sites with one SaaS management plane
  • Quickly stand up new edge locations from bare metal upwards
  • Remotely deploy apps to the edge with a few clicks
  • Leverage powerful open source cloud frameworks such as KubeVirt and Kubernetes without the operational overhead
