Oracle introduced Roving Edge Infrastructure, a portable, scalable, rugged and server-class hardware-based appliance that is compatible with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure(OCI) service which is available in over 28 regions. Each Roving Edge Devices (REDs) will have 40 CPU, 512GB of RAM, 61BD of SSD, and an Nvidia T4 Tensor Core GPU. RED can be deployed as a single device or a cluster. A REDs cluster can be formed with 5 to 15 RED devices. Typical industry use cases are focused on military, oil and gas, telecommunications(especially 5G edge device adoption), and other remote geo-location-based workloads. These use cases can support real-time data integration and replication, Machine Learning, augmented analytics, and datamart.

These REDs can be packaged with different software from Oracle and other open-source software. The packaged solution includes various Oracle IaaS Services, and also supports specialized customer prepared images that may include Oracle GoldenGate Replication software, Oracle GoldenGate Stream Analytics software, MSET2, Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Analytics Server, MySQL, and Kafka. These RED devices can receive database change events as well as non-database telemetry events and perform complex event correlations, time-series analysis, and run a machine learning model on the combined streams. This helps to collect and analyze data near to the origin point of data and thereby improving low-latency data processing due to lower network traffic delays, thus providing timely insights into data. Several millions of events every minute can be processed under streaming workloads by making use of REDs clusters, which can provide high-performance computational capability.
