Providing a Novel Edge Server Solution for the Next Retail Revolution
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 12, 2018
Today mimik and Max2 announced a strategic partnership. The partnership will enable retailers to deliver innovative services delivered through an automated and decentralized platform that leverages mobile, tablets, laptops, point of sales systems, cloud servers and more, regardless of their operating system inside the retail environment.
The joint solution provides advanced network functionality enabling users to effortlessly and securely connect all their devices within the retail environment and access all the relative information about merchandise in the store. It also allows direct and secure communication with shoppers inside the store.
“We are delighted to partner with Max2 to provide retailers with a novel, decentralized retail platform. Architecture decentralization in the retail environment has many benefits for consumers and retailers. The benefits to consumers are new retail experiences for discovery of goods and services while retailers enjoy a more cost efficient, secure, and fast way of connecting with their customers. mimik’s decentralized cloud platform is a key technology enabler along with the hardware and retail applications provided by our partner Max2,” said Siavash Alamouti, President & CEO of mimik technology.
“In partnership with mimik we have truly advanced edge computing capabilities where every VeeaHub IoT edge server node deployed by Max2 can represent an “always-on” administrative node for thin client devices (e.g., smartphones and tablets) running one or more microservices supported by mimik’s edgeSDK,” said Michael Salmasi, CEO of Max2. “This provides for cross-platform, distributed computing across several Operating Systems (OSs) with capabilities that are truly anywhere, anytime, any device, any connection and any application.”
NRF visitors will be able to discover and learn more about this innovative solution during the NRF show in Max2’s booth #734 located on Level 3 on January 14-16 in New York City.

Fay Arjomandi (co-founder of mimik) thinks that edge cloud computing is the future of Internet and will not only impact the automotive industry but almost any other vertical. I believe once the platform is unleashed to developers they will come up with use cases and applications that are beyond what we can predict or even imagine. This is what is really exciting about edge cloud computing.

The Internet of Things is no longer part of a dystopic future: it has started to impact our daily lives. Our cars, gadgets and tools have become nodes on the Internet. We are allowing machines to communicate directly, learn from our behaviour and act on our behalf. We have become the sensory system feeding the machines to process, make decisions and lead us through our daily lives. We have started to pass the torch for decision making for our daily lives to the machines creating the ultimate Artificial Intelligence.

“Just when the IT industry was grappling with the loopholes in the cloud technology,” came the famous statement from Peter Levin on the “end of cloud computing” as we know it. Once regarded as the holy grail of the computing world, the cloud apparently left many in a fix and looking out for better storage and business solutions. Thus, there is a need to step out of the cloud and move towards the edge—or so to say edge computing.
Edge computing, simply put, is decentralizing of our computer services, and rather moving closer to the actual source of data. IoT is the major driver of edge computing. No doubt this is a paradigm shift in the way in which data will be shared between devices and applications. Already mimik has come up with a fully developed edge cloud platform which solves many of the existing challenges in the centralized cloud computing system…
