LF Edge, an umbrella organization under The Linux Foundation, announced it acquired State of the Edge, a vendor-neutral platform for open research on edge computing. According to the company, the State of the Edge will merge with Open Glossary of Edge Computing and the combined project will assume the State of the Edge name as a Stage 2 project (growth) under LF Edge.

Despite the acquisition, founding co-chairs Matthew Trifiro and Jacob Smith will remain in their positions.

State of the Edge has published three edge research reports since 2017. Each report offered free- of- charge under a Creative Commons license: the landmark 2018 State of the Edge report, the 2019 Data at the Edge report and, most recently, the 2020 State of the Edge report.

Per the company, The State of the Edge project will manage and produce the following assets under the LF Edge umbrella:

?      State of the Edge reports (the 2020 report was published in Q4 2019; the 2021 report is scheduled for Q4 2020)

?      Open Glossary of Edge Computing

?      Edge Computing Landscape
