mimik Technology joins the LF Edge community in collaboration with Open Horizon


OAKLAND, Calif .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – mimik Technology announced today that it is one of the latest class of advanced computing innovators to join LF Edge. LF Edge is an umbrella organization within the Linux Foundation that establishes an open and interoperable framework for edge computing independent of hardware, silicon, cloud or operating system.

“Mimik is delighted to collaborate with LF Edge to ‘edgifi’ the world. LF Edge’s community philosophy reflects mimik’s vision of today’s increasingly hyperconnected world, providing opportunities to collectively contribute to innovation at the edge, ”said Fay Arjomandi, Founder and CEO of mimik. “There is a much broader proposition for the whole community to thrive together, compared to one winning company. We’re excited to join the community and expand our ecosystem of partners and customers, ranging from big brands to startups. We have already started contributing our knowledge and technology while gaining information from other members of the community. ”

mimik has been working closely with IBM, a contributor to the Open Horizon project within LF Edge, for almost a year. Mimik’s relationship with IBM is anchored in IBM Edge Application Manager, the commercially supported distribution of Open Horizon. In December 2020, mimik announced its collaboration with IBM, relaying the overall goal behind the effort, which is to “extend IBM Edge Application Manager device management and edge cluster support by enabling the deploying containerized workloads to mobile devices ”.

Open Horizon is an open source software project within the LF Edge coordination group and serves as a key project within the organization. As a service software lifecycle management platform for containerized workloads and machine learning assets, it supports autonomous management of applications up to large-scale edge nodes and computing devices. .

“Mimik provides a platform independent solution for serverless execution at the edge. Open Horizon provides a solution for application and machine learning deployment and lifecycle management. Together, Open Horizon and mimik provide automated management of large-scale serverless applications, ”said Joe Pearson, chairman of the technical steering committee, Open Horizon. “What makes mimik’s solution so special is that their micro-services are based on WASM + WASI, which creates language-independent, portable, secure, small and fast serverless functions. Not only are they containerized and Docker compatible, but they can run up to 10,000 times faster than micro-services based on interpreted languages ​​like Python and NodeJS, at speeds close to compiled C ++.

About mimik Technology

mimik pioneered hybrid edge cloud computing to enable any computing device to act as a cloud server to help application developers unlock the next generation of applications for the hyper-connected world. The platform includes a runtime engine for developers to develop and host microservices on all kinds of end user devices such as smartphones, smart IoT devices, and AI-based sensors. The engine is independent of operating system, device, networks and public / private cloud. It is not exclusive and works with existing development tools and standard language. mimik also provides a ready-to-deploy SaaS (cloud and / or edge) application domain for a wide range of verticals, including fintech. The mimik platform enables an edge-in versus cloud-out approach to build applications faster and dramatically reduce infrastructure costs, minimize latency, improve data security and privacy, and enable Direct application-to-application communication via standard RESTful API first and serverless microservice-driven architecture.
