Wednesday 05 October 2022

US-based new edge computing services provider Izuma Networks has completed an acquisition of IoT services platform Pelion's Device Management business, the company said.

Izuma Networks, founded earlier this year by Travis McCollum and Ed Hemphill, veterans of the IoT industry, will focus on the rapidly expanding market for edge computing services.

McCollum and Hemphill formerly founded WigWag, an Austin-based startup acquired by Arm in 2019.

Izuma Networks closed an investment by SoftBank Group which will be used to hire new talent and improve IoT services previously under Pelion Device Management, with a focus on development and dev-ops.

The funding will also go towards streamlining and integrating edge and IoT services under one umbrella.

With constant changes in major providers offerings, such as the recently announced shutdown of Google's IoT Core Services product, the team at Izuma Networks is focused on providing a pure play IoT and Edge service with long term support which is cloud provider independent.

The team is hyperfocused on making changes to their cloud and license offerings that will provide assurances to major enterprise customers building solutions with decade and longer product life cycles.

Izuma Networks offers an edge computing and Internet of Things management service. With the acquisition of the Pelion Device Management business, Izuma Networks is in both edge computing services and IoT services.

Izuma Cloud is the company's unified solution for both IoT deployment and management of devices, as well as application orchestration and remote management at the Edge.

Izuma Networks edge computing offering includes Izuma Edge, an Apache 2.0 licensed software stack which can live on any x86 or Arm 64-bit class product.

This stack allows customers to deploy applications using Kubernetes APIs and provides critical remote management services for operators deploying dozens to thousands of remote gateways or edge servers.

Izuma Client, formerly Pelion Device Management Client, is a lightweight portable stack for connecting IoT devices to the Izuma Cloud. The Izuma Client has sophisticated firmware updates and Lightweight M2M data services.
