Edge computing is one of the fastest-growing trends in Technology for good reason; there are significant advantages to lower-code, lighter-weight, low-latency distributed computing that can be spun up as needed.
Vantiq Edge Servers are Vantiq Servers, and they run distributed Vantiq applications. In this class, you will install an Edge server, then distribute an application between the Edge and the cloud.
- Experience developing applications on a Vantiq platform
- Your intended Edge device, such as a personal computer, microcontroller, etc. (See the documentation)
- Vantiq Edge license files from Vantiq Support
- Familiarity with the operating system, including scripting, on your Edge device
The documentation also instructs the user how to obtain other required software packages needed to run Vantiq Edge, which you can do for your first lab.
