Microsoft Announces New Windows IoT Innovations for Intelligent Edge

By Ken Briodagh February 28, 2019

Windows 10 IoT provides a family of operating systems for device builders to develop solutions, from compact low-power devices to servers. This includes Windows 10 IoT Core for small-footprint, smart-edge devices and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, which brings the full power of Windows to IoT devices.

Microsoft has now released Windows Server IoT 2019, designed to securely handle the largest edge workloads with fixed-function, server-class devices. With full binary compatibility to Windows Server 2019, device manufacturers reportedly can build server-class IoT edge devices that enable high-capacity storage and compute scenarios and seamlessly scale between cloud and the edge.

With the Azure IoT Edge for Windows, developers can bring cloud workloads to the edge so that they can harness the full power of the Windows 10 IoT platform, the company said. Users will be able to scale IoT solutions across the cloud or edge with a managed service that delivers cloud intelligence locally by deploying and running AI, Azure services, and custom logic directly on cross-platform IoT devices.

Azure IoT Device Agent for Windows is designed to help customers remotely provision and manage IoT devices, especially when direct device access isn’t always feasible.

A new Robot Operating System for Windows IoT rounds out the new toolset. Using it, developers reportedly can build and deploy commercial-grade Robot Operating System (ROS) solutions on Windows, making robots easier to develop, more aware of their surroundings, and safer to be around.
