Creating an Intelligent Edge Fabric Using Kubernetes and OpenStack
Edge applications which interact the closest with the local devices in the field are getting more sophisticated and intelligent with every passing quarter. There’s a lot of opportunity and promise in edge computing – for both end consumers and for businesses such as retailers and Telco providers. These applications can offer customers a seamless and personalized experience, help improve business processes, and more.
Kubernetes combined with OpenStack offer the perfect stack for creating a powerful and easy to use intelligent edge fabric that can power a myriad of applications and use cases within the organization. This stack will work around challenges such as compute constraints, security management, remote deployment, data gathering and others at the edge.
Through a live demo of a sample use case, this talk covers the suggested architecture and design patterns for enabling a distributed, scalable edge framework that can be consumed (in a self-service/API) by various stakeholders/apps - enabling them to easily leverage the generated data in a reliable way.
We share best practices around the various components of the stack- comprising of a managed Kubernetes and Managed OpenStack solution as well as key consideration for day-2 operations and maintainability.
