Now generally available, mimik’s platform and edgeEngine re-invent cloud client/server model for improved performance and control
Vancouver, Canada, November 8, 2018 —mimik technology inc., today announced its vision for a new decentralized cloud with the public launch of its edge cloud platform and edge Software Developer Kit (edgeEngine) after intensive private proof-of-concept testing with customers in key vertical markets. Developers, enterprises, government and academic institutions can now use the mimik platform to build a new generation of smarter, more responsive applications that turn ordinary devices such as mobile phones into cloud servers—tapping into the unused computing power at the edge of the cloud.
With mimik, developers, organizations and individuals will have more choices and more control about where and how to run their applications—utilizing remote servers in a public data center, local servers, new edge servers; or spreading the load across multiple cloud providers and edge devices.
“We believe a decentralized cloud architecture is essential for building a more sustainable Internet, and key to restoring choice and consent for users in the future,” stated Siavash Alamouti, President and CEO, mimik technology inc. “Our mission is to extend the cloud to edge devices and help build the decentralized cloud which will become the foundation for improved connectivity, performance and privacy of internet applications.”
The mimik edgeEngine and platform is operating system independent. The edgeEngine provides a lightweight container environment that allows developers to install and run the same microservices on any platform—PCs, tablets, set-top-boxes, home routers or mobile phones. Applications built with the edgeEngine can remotely load, start and stop microservices. mimik’s platform allows developers to discover their microservices globally and communicate directly from microservice to microservice at the applications level – all without the need for network drivers or protocol programming. Installing a microservice on a mimik-enabled device enables that device to act as a server and participate in the new decentralized cloud.
“The launch of our edgeEngine and platform is a big milestone for mimik. We have been working closely with several partners in key vertical markets to integrate mimik into their solutions,” said Fay Arjomandi, co-founder and Chief Product Officer, mimik technology inc. “We have been able to validate the functionality of our platform in different environments, and we are now ready for the general developer community to experience mimik difference and create their own decentralized cloud applications. Today we are also announcing several customers who are using mimik in strategic markets including gaming, health and wellness, and 5G communications.”
