EDJX announced its availability at facilities across North America via Cyxtera, a company of data center colocation and interconnection services. EDJX is an edge computing platform that facilitates writing edge and IoT applications using serverless computing. With this partnership, EDJX will be available through the Cyxtera Marketplace network fabric in three initial markets, with several others to follow: Santa Clara, CA, Dallas, TX, and Weehawken, NJ.
Expansion into North America
Cyxtera is the premier provider of carrier-neutral facilities used by EDJX as metropolitan area hubs. Legacy serverless and CDN solutions depend on compute being in a few points of presence. This limits the potential to accelerate code and data for IoT apps.
EDJX CEO John Cowan said,
“Launching the world’s first distributed serverless CDN platform at the edge through this partnership with a leading global data center provider means that we’re able to provide customers with a solution that rivals any similar solution in the market.”
The rollout across Cyxtera data centers will feature EdjBlock a new solution launched by EDJX, ITRenew and Virtual Power Systems (VPS). EdjBlock enables rapid deployment and monetization of distributed CDN and edge computing services.
ITRenew is equipping the platform with flexible, cost-effective Sesame by ITRenew rack-scale compute and storage solutions. EdjBlock systems also include Software-Defined Power control from Virtual Power Systems (VPS) to optimize uptime and efficiency.
