Deploy and Run Apps at the Edge

Use HashiCorp tools to deploy, run, and connect apps at the edge, closer to your customers.

Your challenge

Devices are everywhere, and connectivity is ubiquitous. The Internet of Things has evolved into something much larger: edge computing.

Cloud providers are expanding beyond datacenters and bringing computing power to the edge — close to where your customers live, work, and play.

This proximity opens a new world of possibilities for retailers, manufacturers, media companies, telcos and many other verticals. The key challenge: How do you deliver differentiated applications at the edge, where performance, efficiency, and security are paramount?

The HashiCorp stack is the ideal toolchain to help you build, run, and manage applications at the edge.

Bring apps to the edge - and delight your users

Bring best practices for infrastructure provisioning and lifecycle management to the edge. Secure edge devices and customer data with end-to-end encryption and secrets management. Run containers at the edge with a lightweight scheduler.
