Manage Edge Services

Edge Service

Edge service NeuronEX can realize data collection, data preprocessing, edge computing and other capabilities. In many industrial scenarios, a large number of edge services need to be deployed to achieve data interconnection, global optimization and agile production.

ECP supports the batch creation and management of hundreds of edge service instances in Kubernetes, docker and other environments, and supports edge service configuration management and batch configuration distribution, and accelerate the rapid deployment and implementation of IIOT projects.

ECP supports the management of edge services through managed and hosted:

  • Managed: Managed refers to the edge service created and deployed by users.
  • Hosted: Hosted refers to the edge service created and deployed by the ECP platform. The hosted edge service supports deployment, start, stop, and upgrade by ECP.

Managed mode, ECP supports two methods: Managed - Direct Connection and Managed - Agent. Users can choose the appropriate management method according to the actual scenario.

Hosting mode, ECP supports Host Edge Services By Docker method.

There are functional differences between managed and hosted edge services, as follows:
