Edge services provider Izuma Networks has taken over Pelion’s IoT Device Management business for an undisclosed sum.

Founded earlier this year by IoT veterans Travis McCollum and Ed Hemphill, Izuma Networks now plans to hire new talent and enhance its offerings with a focus on development and dev-ops.

McCollum and Hemphill also founded Austin-based start-up WigWag, which was acquired by Arm in 2019.

The Izuma Cloud is a unified solution for both IoT deployment and management of devices – a global edge and IoT management service.

Izuma’s acquisition of Pelion’s device management platform shows its mission to become a global leader in edge computing and IoT service provision.

The company offers an Apache 2.0 licensed software stack called Izuma Edge that runs on any x86 or Arm 64-bit product. Apps can be deployed through Kubernetes APIs to gain access to remote management services across hundreds of remote gateways or edge servers.

Prior to being purchased by Arm, WigWag reduced the load of routing and home automation by making devices more manageable and efficient. It did so through an open-source runtime deviceJS, reducing the complexities of other IoT protocols and offering a unified programming language for quickly building apps and devices.
