EDGE STARTUP OF THE YEAR 2021 WINNER: PRATEXO

Pratexo Inc., the plug and play edge computing platform-as-a-service, announced its award as the Startup of the Year, as selected by a panel of independent judges at Edge Computing World 2021.

Pratexo is the intelligent edge computing and distributed cloud platform that dramatically accelerates the time to design, test, and provision the architectures required for next-generation applications for AI, IoT, and Industry 4.0. Based on open and proven technologies, Pratexo is your ‘agile edge architect’ that recommends, simulates, and then actually stands up a resilient and secure architectural configuration to meet the specific needs of your distributed cloud system.

Edge Startup of the Year was the first major award won by the company, which has since gone on to win a number of other accolades, including the Emerging Edge Computing Company of the Year at the 10th annual CompassIntel Awards, and the 2022 ABB Electrification Startup Challenge.

In their own words, Mutable is like anAirbnb for servers, Mutable’s Public Edge Cloud upgrades network operators’ underutilized servers into new revenue streams by sharing their low-latency computing with the makers of next-generation AR/VR, IoT, robotics, autonomous vehicle and cloud gaming applications.

Mutable stood out in a strong field of competitors and after the final pitch they were selected for the final 3 alongside imagimob and Stream Analyze. Mutable’s innovative approach to make Edge Computing more accessible, secure, and faster ultimately led to them taking the award at the Edge Computing World 2020 Startup of the Year Competition.
