Powering The Store of The Future


Support for Docker containers to provide portable application
delivery across different environments


LXC provides simple, light weight Linux containers


Reliant Platform supports a KVM based hypervisor for whole
OS virtualization, including most versions of Windows


Support for networking functionality and
a wide range of security controls


Local content delivery for audio, video,
and hi‐resolution imagery


Complete web based central configuration
management and control


The Reliant Edge Platform can be deployed
as a single unit or as a two system high‐availability
cluster


Public or private clouds host servers and data to allow
applications to be delivered in‐store. Edge computing
allows in‐store application delivery to take place to
support low‐latency and continual operation when
connectivity to the cloud isn’t available.


Video Camera systems are loT devices and can stream content to
Reliant's Edge Platform where machine learning apps can model customer
and store associate behavior.


RFID sensors are IoT devices that can be managed,
monitored, and controlled via an edge computing
platform.


Interactive magic mirrors and AI/ML driven experiences can be
supported by an edge application for delivery, management,
and controlRFID

State of the art “interactive” magic mirrors and AI/ML driven
experiences can best be supported via an edge application for
application delivery, management, and control


Buy On‐line, Pick Up In Store lockers are the
newest requirement for an omnichannel
strategy. Reliant Edge Platform supports customer
access management and overall
system orchestration.


The Reliant Edge Platform supports point‐of‐sale and payment applications.
Payment terminals are IoT devices that Reliant’s Platform can manage, while
payment middleware can be hosted on our platform. POS software can be
deployed as a VM and POS hardware can use the edge platform to load their
software from base‐metal.


Digital shelf labels are a classic IoT application that can
be well supported by Reliant’s Edge Platform. This includes
overall management, monitoring, data delivery, and
orchestration of the label application set.


The Reliant Edge Platform can integrate closely with store WiFi providing local content delivery,
web caching, and web content control.


Supporting in‐store kiosks is another great edge
computing application. This can include management,
configuration control, and application and content
delivery to these systems.


A manager’s PC can be deployed as a VM on
Reliant’s Edge Platform


The Reliant Edge Platform is typically deployed in‐store on a
demarc or in a small rack.


Central management and monitoring of IoT
temperature sensors in storage areas


Support and management of Bluetooth beacons and BLE is
another terrific edge application


The Reliant Edge Platform can deliver high resolution
video to digital displays
