Intel and Alibaba announced launch of  a Joint Edge Computing Platform that allows enterprises to develop customizable device-to-cloud IoT solutions for different edge computing scenarios, including industrial manufacturing, smart building and smart community, among others.

The Joint Edge Computing Platform is an open architecture that integrates Intel software, hardware and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies with Alibaba Cloud’s latest IoT products. The platform utilizes computer vision and AI to convert data at the edge into business insights. The Joint Edge Computing Platform was recently deployed in Chongqing Refine-Yumei Die Casting(Yumei) factories and was able to increase defect detection speed five times from manual detection to automatic detection, claim the companies.

In addition, Intel and Alibaba Cloud established the Apsara Stack Industry Alliance, which focuses on building an ecosystem of hybrid cloud solutions for Alibaba Cloud’s Apsara Stack. Optimized for Intel Xeon Scalable processors, the Apsara Stack provides large- and medium-sized businesses with on-premises hybrid cloud services that function the same as hyperscale cloud computing and big data services provided by Alibaba public cloud. 

Last year, the Alibaba Cloud launched a pilot program in China with Intel for a cloud-based FPGA (field programmable gate array) acceleration service with the goal of enabling customers to have virtual access to powerful compute resources in the cloud to help them more effectively manage business, scientific and enterprise data application workloads more effectively.
