Edge computing on Kubernetes is emerging as a powerful way to share, distribute and manage data on a massive scale in ways that cloud or on-premise deployments cannot necessarily provide. Libby Clark, editorial director of The New Stack, hosted a podcast from During a podcast from Kubecon + CloudNativeCon in Seattle, in Seattle about some of the challenges involved.On hand to discuss their projects and goals working with Kubernetes for edge-computing deployments were:
Mike Milinkovich, executive director, the Eclipse Foundation;
Kevin Xu, general manager, global strategy and operations, PingCAP;
Derek Collison, creator of NATS and founder of a company called Synadia Communications.
For the Eclipse Foundation, one of the main challenges is managing the interaction between edge and cloud for IoT gateways constructs or edge gateways, Milinkovich said. The Eclipse Foundation is also working with CNCF, Red Hat, Huawei and others and has co-created an IoT/edge working group within Kubernetes to focus on driving requirements from the edge into Kubernetes projects.
