What happens when you take Dell's leading IoT expert and put him in a new edge virtualization startup that is leading open-source efforts? 2020 will likely hold the answer as Zededa's channel partner and integration strategies begin to play out under the leadership of Jason Shepherd, the former CTO of IoT and edge computing for Dell Technologies who joined Zededa as vice president of ecosystem in November. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based startup raised a $16 million funding round earlier this year for its Edge Virtualization X engine, which allows organizations to run legacy applications in virtual machines while spinning new applications into containers. Shepherd recently told CRN that Zededa is continuing his mission of making IoT more open and interoperable, moving the field away from the days of software and hardware lock-in. Will that dream come to fruition? Time will tell.
