EdgeX Foundry is a vendor-neutral, highly flexible and scalable open-source framework hosted by The Linux Foundation. It enables developers to build apps that run at the edge, acting as a middleware between the things and the cloud.
It provides the components to develop microservices responsible for data acquisition, data analytics and cloud connectors, exposing a rich set of APIs to allow full control of the system and configuration. The reference architecture allows scaling out to thousands of devices and sensors.
This snap is a part of EdgeX Foundry and contains the following reference services:
Core Data and Message Bus (Redis)
Registry and Config (Consul)
Rules Engine (eKuiper)
Alerts & Notifications
Configurable Application Service
API Gateway a.k.a. Reverse Proxy (Kong)
Secret Store (Vault)
Management Service Agent (deprecated)
Note that not all the above services are enabled and started by default.
