Open-source framework for IoT edge computing

EdgeX Foundry is a vendor-neutral, highly flexible and scalable open-source framework hosted by The Linux Foundation. It enables developers to build apps that run at the edge, acting as a middleware between the things and the cloud.

It provides the components to develop microservices responsible for data acquisition, data analytics and cloud connectors, exposing a rich set of APIs to allow full control of the system and configuration. The reference architecture allows scaling out to thousands of devices and sensors.
