EDJX launches first distributed CDN and serverless platform

EDJX partners with Cyxtera to bring content and apps closer to end users

Edge computing connecting software and applications

EDJX, a pioneering edge computing platform, has partnered with Cyxtera, a global leader in data center colocation and interconnection services, to be available through the Cyxtera Marketplace network fabric in three initial markets, Santa Clara, Californiam  Dallas, Texas and Weehawken, NJ. The initial facilities will be operational by December 2020.

EDJX is building the world’s largest edge cloud in terms of total edge locations. The partnership with Cyxtera provides carrier-neutral facilities EDJX will use as metropolitan area hubs to address compute bottlenecks. 

Legacy serverless and content delivery network (CDN) solutions require compute in a few points of presence, which limits the ability to speed up code and data for Internet of Thing (IoT) apps. EDJX enables the compute to be distributed to many points of presence without the same capital investment.

"Launching the world's first distributed serverless CDN platform at the edge through this partnership with a leading global data center provider means that we're able to provide customers with a solution that rivals any similar solution in the market," said John Cowan, CEO, EDJX.

EDJX’s new EdjBlock solution, ITRenew and Virtual Power Systems (VPS) will feature in the rollout across Cyxtera’s data centers. EdjBlock is a pre-integrated edge computing infrastructure that supports rapid deployment and monetization of distributed CDN and edge computing services.

The platform will feature flexible, cost-effective, rack-scale compute and storage solutions for efficient scaling and greater sustainability, as well as software-defined power control to optimize uptime and efficiency.

"Cyxtera is focused on delivering the diversity of innovative infrastructure solutions that meet the demands of today's enterprise customers," said Holland Barry, senior vice president and field CTO, Cyxtera.

"We see tremendous potential in rolling out a truly global edge computing platform in our data centers in partnership with EDJX. We believe this partnership will enable customers that require infrastructure closer to end users to deliver the kind of efficiency that can make a meaningful difference in their business performance."

EDJX will work on building out the edge sustainably. Developers will have access to a cheaper, faster service to build, launch and accelerate IoT apps.

The first 100 qualified developers can sign up for one year of free service to the public limited beta of EDJX’s CDN, DNS, Serverless, and Serverless DB services. They will also learn first about new releases, product enhancements and future discounts.
