Hi all 👋

A short and punchy update this week.

I wrote an article on the future of IoT and Edge computing. You can read it here: https://www.gigabitmagazine.com/cloud-computing/iot-will-unlock-potential-cloud-edge-and-blockchain

The network team have been working on diagnostics and benchmarking commands for CLI.

They’ve also been working on the Go version of Content Distribution, which is currently in heavy testing.

On the back of testing we’ve been refactoring and improving Content Distribution, and have found and resolved a number of bugs, including some that relate to extension case, hot config reload and filetype detection.

Work has been ongoing with the new Edge Console which is due to launch early 2020.

And a number of updates to DNS on Stargate have been made.

We’ve also made a number of updates to our roadmaps for the next 12-18 months, which we’re close to finalising for release.

We’ve had s series of great customer discussions this week, including a number of new business opportunities.

And we’ve moved to production testing of content distribution with a key customer. I should be able to share more on this in the run up to Christmas.

And that’s it for this week!

Enjoy your weekends.

Hi everyone 👋

First up this week: we’ve released a Beta version of the self-serve interfaces for Content Distribution 💥

You can access this now under the interfaces on my.edge.network and take the technology for a spin.

This includes access to the full imaging pipeline in the platform. We’ll be adding documentation for this to the main site soon.

The Beta gives you access to spin up the service for a single domain, with an additional domain unlocked for every device that you’ve contributed to the network.

The team have also been working on connectivity tests within Edge Cli.

And they’ve put the finishing touches on to the new Go version of the Content Distribution app, which will be deployed to mainnet next week.

The required builds for this have been prepared. And the required methods in the package that we use for caching – big-cache – have been created. This makes it possible to introduce conditional cache pre-warming on Gateway based on the frequency that a cached resource is accessed.

Which is a fantastic bit of tech.

We’ve released a series of performance improvements for Gateway, which includes a bi-directional RPC stream. This means a reduction in required concurrent http/2 connections and a reduction in latency between Host and Gateway.

There’s an outreach article that covers this, for those who fancy reading the more technical details: https://edge.network/en/knowledge/network/gateway-bi-directional-streaming/

And that’s it for now!

Enjoy your weekends.
