“We are happy to collaborate with Foundries.io.The access to the FoundriesFactory platform can facilitate our customers to develop, deploy, manage and update secure IoT and edge devices, enabling them to accelerate time to market while reducing engineering and maintenance costs,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite.
By some accounts, the Industrial IoT market will grow to $1.1 trillion in 2028 from $216 billion today. That growth requires a new way of building and maintaining Linux-based devices, one in which security and resource efficiency are paramount. FoundriesFactory addresses these challenges with a cloud platform designed to both simplify and reduce the cost of developing, deploying and maintaining secure IoT and Edge Linux-based devices. It accelerates product firmware, operating system and applications development, shortens time to market and provides the ability to monitor and update devices and fleets, keeping them secure over their product lifetime.
“It’s a natural move to extend our cloud-based DevOps platform for embedded IoT and Edge to Variscite’s customers,” said George Grey, CEO of Foundries.io. “The nature of embedded development is changing, and FoundriesFactory delivers a common, easy way for developers to move quickly and to easily maintain devices for their entire lifetime from the cloud. We’re excited to make this available to millions of developers around the world.”
