Every decade or so, we’ve seen the technology market undergo major shifts. Over the past few decades, those shifts have been driven by mobility and cloud. With Aruba Mobile First Architecture, Aruba has led the charge in this era with industry-leading wired, wireless, and security solutions. In this new era that IDC predicts will include over 55B IoT devices connected worldwide by 2022, businesses are deploying compute, storage, and networking resources to the edge to convert IoT device data into new business outcomes. This is the Intelligent Edge. And again Aruba is leading this new era with Aruba ESP. Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform) is the industry’s first AI-powered, cloud-native platform designed to automate, unify, and protect the Intelligent Edge.
Network performance and security has never been more critical to performance of the business than it is in the Intelligent Edge era. Provisioning network services and resolving issues faster, and protecting the environment from IoT devices, are paramount. Yet most IT teams still operate in silos and use labor-intensive static configurations to isolate IoT traffic, and few leverage automation and AI. These traditional methods are unsustainable in the Intelligent Edge era.
Aruba ESP has four attributes to help organizations harness the potential of the Intelligent Edge: AIOps, Unified Infrastructure, Zero Trust Security, and Flexible Consumption and Financing.
