Operate machine connectivity efficiently and scalable with Kubernetes
Softing‘s Industrial Edge products offer connectivity at the interface between OT and IT in industrial applications.
As Docker containers, the products can be easily operated with standard IT tools.
Suitable tools are Kubernetes and Kubernetes-based management platforms, such as Red Hat OpenShift or SUSE Rancher. Softing‘s Industrial Edge products can thus be managed as components of a Kubernetes cluster at edge level, exactly as all other software components for edge computing.
Softing Industrial Edge products support standard protocols such as OPC UA, MQTT and httpREST. This ensures seamless integration into typical reference architectures for Industrial IoT.
Edge-level management of Softing Docker containers with Kubernetes
All Industrial Edge products can be configured via a built-in web interface. They also provide an httpREST interface for configuration via 3rd party components.
