Building a Business on Open Source
Building a business on open source comes with unique challenges and benefits. Take a in-depth look at licensing + open source market overview.
IoT, Edge Computing, and Digitalization in Healthcare
COVID-19 accelerated the digitization of healthcare, contributing to growing IoT adoption and exploding health data volumes. This digital transformation helps to improve efficiency and reduce costs, while opening new avenues for enhanced patient experience and well-being. Simultaneously, growing data privacy concerns, increasing costs, and heavier regulatory requirements are challenging the use of cloud computing to manage this data. A megashift to Edge Computing is addressing these challenges enabling a faster, safer and more reliable digital healthcare infrastructure.
What is an Edge Database, and why do you need one?
Edge Databases are a new type of database rising to the needs of the decentralized Edge Computing topology. They deliver specific feature sets making it easy for application developers to implement edge solutions quickly and successfully without being detered or even stopped by fundamental functionalities like fast local data persistence and decentralized data flows (Data Sync).
Why database performance creates business value
* database speed is the key to compute more data faster and make data -based decisions speedily
* database speed translates into ressource efficiency – saving ressources (like battery, CPU, memory) saves money and reduces waste
* database speed affects end user response rates significantly – smooth and fast user experiences keep people happy and more productive
Why do we need Edge Computing for a sustainable future?
Centralized data centers consume a lot of energy, produce a lot of carbon emissions and cause significant electronic waste. While data centers are seeing a positive trend towards using green energy, an even more sustainable approach (alongside so-called “green data centers” ) is to cut unnecessary cloud traffic, central computation and storage as much as possible by shifting computation to the edge. Ideally, Edge Computing strategies use efficient technologies like ObjectBox to harness the power of already deployed available devices (like e.g. smartphones, machines, desktops, gateways), making the solution even more sustainable.
Why Edge Computing is More Relevant in 2021 Than Ever
The world has been forced to digitize more quickly and to a greater extent in 2020 and 2021. COVID has created the need to remodel how work, socializing, production, entertainment, and supply chains function. Despite decades of digitization efforts, with the pandemic...

How Building Green IoT Solutions on the Edge Can Help Save Energy and CO2
The internet of things (IoT) has a huge potential to reduce carbon emissions, as it enables new ways of operating, living, and working  that are more efficient and sustainable. However, IoT’s huge and growing electricity demands are a challenge. This demand is due...
Time Series & Objects: Using Data on the Edge
Many IoT projects collect, both time series data and other types of data. Typically, this means they will run two databases: A time-series database and a traditional database or key/value store. This creates fracture and overhead, which is why ObjectBox TS brings...
What is Edge Computing?
Today, over 90 percent of enterprise data is sent to the cloud. In the next years, this number will drop to just 25 percent according to Gartner. The rest of the data is not going anywhere. It is being stored and used locally, on the device it was created on - e.g....
