ZEDEDA, a leader in edge orchestration, announced a key Technology Supplier agreement with Rockwell Automation that will provide the company with distributed edge management and orchestration capabilities. Rockwell Automation, an early ZEDEDA investor, will incorporate technology from ZEDEDA as part of its upcoming edge management offering that allows users to manage edge devices, orchestrate applications, and improve access to manufacturing data.
Digital transformation is accelerating projects at the distributed edge. Together, ZEDEDA and Rockwell Automation provide a path to help manufacturers of all sizes accelerate their digital transformation, especially as they increasingly adopt edge computing technologies within their distributed environments.
ZEDEDA’s open, distributed, cloud-native edge management and orchestration solution has attracted strategic partnerships and integrations with Global 500 companies, including Google, Microsoft, PTC and SUSE. The company has quadrupled its number of nodes under management since 2021 and recently closed $26 million in Series B funding, including additional investment from Rockwell Automation.
“Organizations face several challenges as they undertake digital transformation. This partnership is a natural next step to improve management and orchestration at the industrial edge,” said Chantal Polsonetti, ARC Advisory Group. “Together Rockwell Automation and ZEDEDA can solve issues related to deployment, security, and connectivity in distributed environments, and accelerate access to critical data.”
