Sunlight makes it easy to manage 1000’s of edge locations from AWS, Azure and Google Cloud

Newly released version enables edge location management from any cloud or data center with extended backup capabilities.

CAMBRIDGE, U.K. (November 11, 2021) -- Sunlight.io, the edge infrastructure company, today announced the availability of Sunlight NexVisor HCI Stack and Infrastructure Manager (SIM) version 4.0. The new release has been designed to make management of large distributed edge deployments simpler and ensure data is protected across the whole estate.

Sunlight’s hyperconverged stack is the world’s fastest and thinnest hyperconverged infrastructure stack - enabling applications to be deployed on both x86 and Arm - all the way from tiny edge servers up to data center servers. The subscription-based edge HCI platform, centralised management tools, and application marketplace make it easy to deliver a real ‘as a service’ model for edge deployments across 1000s of locations.

The key new features in this release include:

“The edge is exploding - driven by new applications that both generate and consume vast amounts of data. But the new challenge at the Edge is that, while in the data center everyone is consolidated around Hyperconverged Infrastructure - or HCI - that same infrastructure doesn’t work on the small devices that run in retail stores, factory floors or oil rigs. Neither do the management tools which were designed for big data centers, not thousands of small edge locations. This is what Sunlight has cracked, and this new release makes manageability of large scale edge deployments even simpler.”, said Athanasios Zografos, VP of Engineering, Sunlight.
