Zero-Touch Edge Computing

A hands-off approach to configuring compute infrastructure across highly distributed locations

Edge locations, like wind farms, restaurant chains, retail stores and factories, tend not to have IT resources available at every site. When IT teams want to add new technologies and/or refresh on-site infrastructure they require a ‘zero-touch’ solution that can be deployed to each site, with no expensive technical skills required. Anyone working there can unbox the hardware, plug it into the network and power it on. The nodes then show up as enabled in a central dashboard for the IT team to configure and deploy applications remotely. Sunlight have an easy Zero-Touch Edge Computing solution available ‘as a Service’ and enabled via our partners, Lenovo and Avnet Integrated.

1. Unbox the device

  • No technical skills required

2. Plug in the network cable

  • This can be into the local switch or broadband modem
  • Again there are no technical skills required (it's similar to plugging in your broadband at home)

3. Power on

  • Plug in the power cable and power on
  • Again this is similar to plugging in your broadband at home - no technical skills required

4. Navigate to the Sunlight NexCenter and deploy your applications

  • Credentials are provided by email
  • Wait for the node to show up as 'Enabled'

Easy to implement and manage

Sunlight HyperConverged Edge is easy to install - the complete Sunlight HCE stack can be installed on bare-metal servers in minutes. Sunlight is easy to manage - it includes the Edge Stack Console that allows you to manage all aspects of your Sunlight cluster, including fine-grained control of CPU, storage and network configuration and performance. The dashboard is installed as part of the HCE stack and is highly-available by design across the cluster.

Easy to implement and manage

Highly Available

Sunlight is highly available, delivering fail-over and redundancy for mission-critical applications at the edge. Eliminate downtime and lower the cost of servicing remote locations by moving break-fix to regular business hours and with lower cost SLAs.


Sunlight is designed with security at its core. All components of the Sunlight stack are hardened. Thanks to Sunlight’s fine grained CPU and memory allocation it is possible to physically guard against CPU memory exploits. Control of IO interfaces allows you to separate content and network traffic so there is no sharing of physical drives or network physical interfaces.

Low Cost

Sunlight is priced for edge economics, with flexible terms on a per-node basis.
