Cloud and Edge Devices in Action: from Connectivity to Solutions in Veritas Automata’s HiveNet

Cloud and Edge Devices in Action: from Connectivity to Solutions in Veritas Automata’s HiveNet

Fabrizio Sgura
This isn’t just about connectivity, it’s about transforming the way decisions are made at the edge, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in diverse and dynamic environments.

Veritas Automata’s HiveNet stands as a testament to the seamless integration of cloud and edge computing, redefining the paradigms of connectivity and solution delivery. With a keen focus on industries such as life sciences, supply chain management, transportation, and manufacturing, Veritas Automata leverages the robustness of Rancher K3s Kubernetes to ensure unmatched efficiency across cloud and edge environments. This blog explores the intricacies of HiveNet’s architecture and its transformative impact, particularly within the life sciences vertical.


From a business perspective, Veritas Automata’s decision to name it HiveNet wasn’t arbitrary. It was a deliberate move to distribute decision-making to the edge. By moving the brain into a Kubernetes cluster on bare metal, HiveNet avoids cannibalizing cloud services, setting it apart from the conventional cloud providers.


A use case of HiveNet within the life sciences vertical is its application in vaccine distribution and integrity assurance. Leveraging the combined power of blockchain for secure transactions and Kubernetes-based infrastructure for scalable, flexible deployment, HiveNet facilitates the digital chain of custody for vaccines. From manufacturing through to delivery, each step is securely logged and verifiable on the blockchain, ensuring that vaccines are stored, handled, and transported under prescribed conditions.

This not only streamlines the distribution process but also significantly reduces the risk of counterfeit or compromised vaccines entering the supply chain, ensuring public health and safety.

Want the technical aspects?

At the core of HiveNet’s architecture is an open-source, Kubernetes-based infrastructure, augmented with the security and transparency afforded by Hyperledger Fabric blockchain technology. This foundation supports advanced application architectures, including ROS for robotics, XState for finite state machines management, and NATS for Raft-based distributed messaging. The integration of GitOps principles and OTA custom edge images via Mender enhances continuous delivery, fostering a dynamic, robust environment for cloud and edge-native applications.


Adopting HiveNet transcends mere technology implementation; it signifies investing in a strategic asset that elevates operational agility, security, and competitive advantage. For the life sciences sector, this means being able to respond more swiftly to market demands, regulatory changes, and global health challenges, all while maintaining the highest standards of product integrity and patient safety.


Veritas Automata’s HiveNet represents a pivotal shift towards a more connected, secure, and efficient future in digital transaction processing. By harmonizing the strengths of cloud-native computing, blockchain technology, and advanced edge capabilities, HiveNet offers businesses a powerful tool to innovate, secure their supply chain, and maintain a competitive edge in the digital age.

Step into the future with Veritas Automata’s HiveNet, where the realms of cloud and edge computing merge in a groundbreaking symphony of secure and scalable solutions. This journey is more than a technological leap, it’s a revolution across industries, powered by blockchain.
