The Edge Everywhere
There are countless verticals and industries that benefit from the edge, from smart cities and government to developers. Learn more here.
Sasquatch is calling all developers to #smashyourservers! Edjx is the easy button to develop your next “future proof” application on the edge. Starting a new IoT project but concerned about cloud latency? We are the definitive solution. Building an application that is not latency dependent? Not a problem, we are priced very competitively with other serverless platforms. Building an application for a drone that needs to access servers along the flight path? You have come to the right place. If you can dream it, you can do it on Edjx.
When you develop your application on the Edjx Console, it will run on a worldwide network of servers in traditional data centers. However, if you need even lower latency, simply install one of our EdjBlocks where you need it and, automatically, your application will run there. Try doing that with a virtual machine! Gone are the days of complex database stacks, database and hardware engineers. You as the developer can simply focus on building great software. Even more, we can host your data sensor and IoT end points for you for a low monthly fee, which allows you to hyperscale your IoT applications. You can discover more about sensor hosting here .
Perhaps the best feature of our platform is that we make our compute, storage, memory and other features available to you at “data center” hosted prices. This means you will not pay more for Edjx, despite it being a more resilient and flexible platform than any other serverless platforms. This makes it an easy decision for your finance team.
Edjx was built by hard core developers from scratch to meet the coming challenges of deploying applications at the edge. We did not grow up with a data center mindset, we re-imagined a world with a trillion devices at the edge where data centers and fiber networks could not keep up, and developed the first peer-to-peer edge computing platform on the market. It was difficult and frustrating at times, but we nailed it. And now you as the developer can get the benefit.

Smart Cities & Government
Cities, States and other Government entities are grappling with how to take advantage of technology to provide safety, security and value- added services to their citizens. There are a myriad of software vendors, IoT vendors, and hardware vendors that are more than willing to install their wares in your domain. What does the landscape look like when everything is installed? In many cities, it looks like a clutter of proprietary cabinets and antennas littering the landscape, with citizens wondering what value they have received in exchange for the new “tech litter” blighting the landscape.
The Digital Divide is a critical problem globally, and if it isn’t addressed in the right way it will have detrimental impacts upon society, the economy, and government. Bridging the digital divide and establishing equity by ensuring all citizens have internet access is also a challenge. Some states and municipalities have limited connectivity through fiber optic cables. Running these new conduits requires tricky planning, is extremely expensive, and can disrupt traffic flow while construction occurs. Finally, the “last mile” problem still exists because if fiber is run to the “edge” of a sparsely populated wilderness, the citizens living in that area will still not be able to connect without an enormous additional investment that fiber carriers have no incentive to complete.
Historically, government infrastructure initiatives have been single purpose. For instance, a city CIO wants to solve a problem, such as gunshot detection or object dumping. The RFI, RFP goes out, a number of vendors might respond, and one is selected. The system gets built as a single purpose solution. Hardware and sensors are installed, and the system does what it was designed to do. But what about next year’s’ project? And the year after that? Can existing hardware and sensors be used? Typically “no.” – systems are installed for a specific purpose, and any additional use case requires a new, additional system. Before long, cities are burdened with maintaining multiple, single purpose systems. Now multiply this approach by multiple city departments, and then factor in state and federal initiatives. Before long, an army of technology consultants are essentially “permanently employed” to maintain these systems.
Digital Divide can be closed through the systematic introduction of increased compute capabilities, Edge Intelligence, Serverless Computing, and broadband access via wifi. This has to be a comprehensive strategy, funded by both public funds and private investment and more than wifi is needed to bridge the Digital Divide.
Bridging the digital divide” is not just about “connectivity; compute and storage are part of the equation”. If the nearest data center is 600 miles away, even with great connectivity, things are going to feel very “slow”. Why? Because each software request from a phone, IoT device, or web browser has to travel 600 miles to the datacenter, then get processed, and then return 600 miles back to the user or device –: that’s 1,200 miles! Bridging the divide is more easily served by providing local storage and compute, and using whatever connectivity exists. Connectivity will “feel” fast, even without all the expensive new fiber. A municipality with a localized compute and storage network can provide a great user experience for its citizens and, in many cases, avoid the huge investment in a new network.
EDJX has come up with a technology breakthrough to enable cities, states, and countries to solve both the problem of multiple “single purpose” solutions, as well bridge the digital divide. EdjOS, our multi-tenant peer-to-peer operating system runs on inexpensive, rugged computers that can be installed anywhere, with any level of connectivity. This includes 5G, 4G, 3G, fiber, wifi, and even satellite connectivity for remote locations. Any type of sensor can be installed to any of our EdjBlock “nodes”. For instance one node might have cameras and sonic gunshot detection sensors, while another node has air quality and wildfire or flood detection sensors. Once installed, this network of nodes and sensors becomes a powerful, serverless edge compute and storage environment that can support almost any software application. The EDJX system moves the data center to the “edge”, into neighborhoods or even remote locations. Nodes can be installed on rooftops, cell phone towers, solar powered poles, traffic boxes mostly anywhere. EDJX Our EdjBlock nodes become “swiss army knives” for your city, state, or nation, with unlimited uses and configurations.
Your customers trust you to build their applications, based on your capabilities and expertise. They expect you to know the latest technologies, time and cost-saving trends for their applications. Are you talking about edge computing with your customers? Edge computing is the next wave, and nearly every customer needs an edge strategy.
The cloud (Internet 3.0) has been highly impactful. It’s centralized, it’s easy to deploy, and it’s generally very reliable. But what if a day came when the cloud became overloaded with requests and latency started to be a real problem for your customers? That day is coming soon. IT industry eExperts expect a trillion devices to be online by 2030. There is simply not enough connectivity and data processing capacity in data centers to process this massive amount of traffic. This is where the edge comes in. If there is a computer processing requests and providing storage locally, then reliance on data centers and rapidly saturating fiber channels is minimized. What’s more, low latency applications such as drones, traffic management, and safety must rely on edge computing. Future proofing your clients’ next solution by utilizing the EDJX platform is the answer.
When you build an application on the EDJX platform, it’s automatically configured to run at the closest compute node to where the function needs to run through a patented process we call “smart routing”. This gives your client’s applications superpowers because it future-proofs their software for the edge. If lower latency is needed in the future, you can simply install additional EdjBlocks where your customer needs them. As a systems integrator, this gives you a huge advantage over your competitors. Not only can you quickly code and deploy applications on our platform, but you can speed the applications up simply by adding EdjBlocks nearby. EdjBlocks run all your clients’ applications, now and in the future, so your clients will rely on you for upgrades and enhancements. Additionally, EDJX EdjBlocks are able to integrate directly with sensors or IoT endpoints through direct POE hosting, so you can meet an unlimited range of client demands.There are other serverless platforms on the market. You may be deploying on these platforms for your clients today. However, Edjx has the only peer-to-peer platform with an integrated operating system. Our security model is incredibly robust, and our unique architecture means your clients deployments are infinitely scalable to the edge. System integrators that acquire a proficiency for deploying applications and sensors on the Edjx platform will have a unique advantage over others. Your clients will appreciate it.

IoT / Sensor Hosting
Edjx is the “easy button” for IoT sensor hosting. Our EdjBlocks directly host sensors, and your software written on our platform can directly communicate with your sensor. The benefit is that all your data processing can occur at the edge and you backhaul only the most actionable data to your data warehouse in the cloud. Here are some examples of sensors that can be hosted at the edge:
Sonic sensors for gunshot detection applications
Drone landing pads or NFC sensors
Air quality and other climate sensors
Water level sensors
Wildfire detection sensors
And many more
In most applications, the EdjBlock is located nearby the sensor and the sensor is connected to the EdjBlock via a POE cat5e or higher cable. We design our EdjBlocks to support up to 90 watts per port, although we are able to make more power available to the sensor. Our EdjBlocks handle all the communications back to the internet through 5G femtocells, 4G, 3G, wifi, fiber, or even satellite links, based on what’s available. You simply build your software on our serverless@edge console and it automatically runs at the closest available node to the user. In the case of sensor hosting, the “user” is the sensor itself.
We have an extensive network of tower companies, rooftop companies, fiber COs, etc and will help you get your sensor installed in the location that works for you. Pricing starts at $500 per month, plus installation and platform usage fees. To get started, please contact us.
