Mimik Unleashes the Server Power of Edge Devices

Posted on SDxCentral, November 8, 2018, by Dan Meyer

Vancouver-based mimik technology released its edge cloud platform and edge software development kit (edgeSDK) that minimize the need for cloud resources to power edge devices. It does this by turning ordinary devices, like a mobile phone, into a mini cloud server.

Phil Belanger, chief marketing officer at mimik, explained that the edge cloud platform provides the core authentication, authorization, and communication features that allow the distributed nodes running the edgeSDK on those edge devices to communicate with each other. That communication can be either back through the cloud platform or device-to-device, which is the part that reduces the need to access cloud resources.

The edgeSDK is deployed as a container into applications that can run on mobile-focused operating systems like Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. Belanger said this allows a microservice to basically be run on a mobile phone.

Startup Shifts Cloud Services to IoT

Mimik drives microservices to end nodes

Posted on EETimes, November 8, 2018 by Rick Merritt

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Startup Mimik released software that enables the equivalent of cloud services to run on devices including end nodes in the internet of things (IoT). The so-called edgeSDK aims to lower response times and open up new use cases.

The code lets any device running a popular operating system host the kind of microservices usually managed by the likes of AWS or Microsoft Azure. Early users include companies in gaming and health care, as well as Lime Microsystems, that will bundle the SDK with its open-source base stations.

Carriers in the Facebook-led Telecom Infra Project aim to use the software “so they don’t have to go to a cloud service for communications in villages in Africa where connecting to a remote data center over an expensive satellite link would not be viable,” said Fay Arjomandi, Mimik’s co-founder and chief product officer.

Edge computing startup mimik wants to decentralize the cloud

Edge computing startup mimik wants to decentralize the cloud

Posted on SiliconANGLE, November 8, 2018, by Mike Wheatley

Startup mimik technology Inc. aims to help developers and enterprises offload some of their cloud computing workloads to the “network edge.”

So today, the Vancouver-based company is launching a new edge cloud platform and software development kit that it said can be used to create “smarter, more responsive applications” that effectively transform devices such as smartphones into “cloud servers.” The idea is that companies can tap into these devices and leverage their computing power at the network edge, lessening their dependence on traditional cloud computing.

Developers can use mimik’s edgeSDK to create lightweight container environments on devices including personal computers, tablets, smartphones, home routers and settop boxes, and then run microservices atop them. Container environments are used by developers to isolate their apps so they can run on any kind of platform, while microservices are the components used to build those apps.

In a nutshell, mimik’s platform and SDK can be used to build applications that run directly on edge devices such as smartphones, instead of a regular computer server hosted in the public cloud.
