Edge computing firm Litmus has established a partnership with Google Cloud for industrial applications.
Litmus Edge, the company’s flagship platform, will enable customers to gather industrial data from their assets and have it readily available in Google Cloud.
John Younes, Co-founder and COO of Litmus, said:
“Litmus Edge is a modern edge platform, purpose-built for industry and to bridge factory floors to the Cloud, so this partnership with Google perfectly aligns with our work to help customers enable Industrial IoT.
Together our solution offers rapid-time-to-value, allowing manufacturers to quickly set up Litmus Edge to connect and collect data from any data source, then perform real-time local analytics and send valuable data to Google Cloud over 5G for advanced analytics, business intelligence, machine learning and AI. We can then offer rapid application deployment back to any connected edge device for closed loop control.”
Google Cloud is working more deeply with Litmus to enable innovative manufacturing use cases such as remote diagnostics, robotics, AR/VR content, AI, and machine learning.
Tanuj Raja, Global Head of Strategic Partnerships at Google Cloud, comments:
“As the manufacturing industry relies increasingly on connected machines and digital processes, these businesses need the ability to collect data from any type of industrial system to enable IoT applications at the edge.
We are pleased to have Litmus join us as an ISV partner to help manufacturers modernize processes and enable new AI capabilities at the edge, with Google Cloud. Together we’re enabling the rapid delivery and deployment of new vertical services and applications.”
Google Cloud and Litmus have a long-standing partnership which goes back many years. In 2017, for example, Litmus Health Co-Founder Dr Sam Volchenboum held a presentation during Google Cloud Next on sensitive data management.
Litmus says it’s able to reduce latency, lower processing costs, and eliminate the need to transport data from the edge to a central location for real-time computing through leveraging Google’s vast global network.
