Heat Map: 4 Top Cloud Computing Startups Impacting Industry 4.0
For our 4 top picks, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights 4 interesting examples out of 83 relevant solutions. Depending on your specific needs, your top picks might look entirely different.
Crave Industry – Database Management
Database management has not just one objective. Performance, storage optimization, efficiency, security, and privacy need to be considered. By controlling data throughout its lifecycle, from creation through retirement, companies can prevent events that degrade efficiency and revenue and boost data integration for greater business intelligence.
Brazilian startup Crave Industry offers comprehensive cloud computing solutions for industry 4.0. They provide database management services and create the necessary functionalities to operate it efficiently. In addition, they build intelligence algorithms to ensure that the network is dynamic to respond to any negative conditions.
OptDyn – Peer-to-Peer Cloud Computing
In the setting of smart and connected factories, the connection and communication between machines and between machines and humans are essential for reaping the full benefits of cloud computing. For such technologies on the edge networks and devices, peer-to-peer (p2p) cloud computing can be more efficient compared to traditional centralized servers. If such p2p technologies utilize artificial intelligence (AI), it will make the networks smarter, more dynamic, and more affordable.
The US-based startup OptDyn develops Subutai PeerOS, an open-source, container-based p2p cloud, and Internet of Things (IoT) software and firmware. They allow companies to deploy p2p clouds privately and commercially and allow factories to connect IoT devices and their end-users more efficiently.
Black Turtle – Cloud Migration
There are many benefits of migrating data, applications, and other business elements to a cloud computing environment. Legacy software, a growing number of resources, distributing data to different parts of an organization, and using a diverse range of technology vendors can all be optimized with a centralized cloud. From a complete migration to hybrid migrations, where some data is still stored locally, startups offer several ways for companies to move to the cloud.
Indian startup Black Turtle develops customizable enterprise application development, maintenance, and support services, including migration to the cloud. They offer a range of services including hybrid cloud migration, cloud optimization and cost reduction, API development for mobile applications to run on the cloud, and general data migration to the cloud.
Cantier – Secure XaaS Connectivity
Many software applications and company functions are increasingly being provided as packaged services. From Software-as-a-Service, we have come to X-as-a-Service. From equipment, platforms, infrastructure, and company functions, startups are trying to bring greater connectivity and integration between the different services being used by, say, a factory.
Singaporean scaleup Cantier offers a suite of cloud solutions for industry 4.0 enterprises. Their main goal is to help factories reduce their upfront software investments. They offer complete management of IaaS, Paas, SaaS, and XaaS clouds. Their cloud solutions are built with a focus on security, control, and resource concentration.
