PTC ThingWorx users can easily deploy Faircom EDGE
Extension allows for efficient, powerful data management on edge devices
Note: c-treeEDGE became FairCom EDGE in 2020.
Recently, FairCom launched an addition to its family of data management solutions: the FairCom EDGE V1: A fast, transaction-controlled database built for reliability on the edge, which is ideal for Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) use case scenarios.
At the same time, we announced that we joined the PTC Partner Network and the availability of a connecter that will allow FairCom EDGE to be used with one of the most innovative and transformative IoT platforms on the market today, ThingWorx®, PTC’s leading Industrial Internet of Things platform.
The new FairCom EDGE Extension enables ThingWorx users to seamlessly integrate their FairCom EDGE Database with their ThingWorx IoT platform development environment. PTC has validated the FairCom’s Extension as ThingWorx Ready, making it available to ThingWorx users on the PTC Marketplace™.
Among the many benefits ThingWorx users can now experience when utilizing a database in their edge computing activities is data persistence on, at, or near the collection point. Two other important features that FairCom EDGE provides are ACID-compliant transactions and replication (produce multiple copies) to the cloud, to another edge device, or to the same machine. All features are included in its tiny 37MB footprint.
On launch day, FairCom’s Director of Business Development Evaldo Oliveira said this about the new connector, “The FairCom EDGE Extension of ThingWorx provides users with the ability to experience fast, reliable database capabilities while utilizing one of the world’s top IoT platforms. The Extension can be easily installed in order to add a ‘thing’ to the ThingWorx Composer and can be eventually installed on virtually any device in the user’s IoT environment. The end result is efficient, powerful data management capabilities for ThingWorx users.”
