While the development of edge and IoT applications is advancing, one of the challenges organizations are facing is how to get their applications to the edge while also monitoring and managing them. How do you get the bits to the box? There are some proprietary solutions and many have attempted to use cloud native deployment tools (like Kubernetes) with mixed results. There is also a plethora of open source tools to assist deploy, orchestrate, manage and monitor applications. In this presentation, come learn about an effort to stitch together a collection of open source tools and technologies to create an edge management solution. What worked and what did not? What tools can scale to IoT sizes but at the same time work in resource constrained edge environments? Why proprietary solutions may or may not work for managing your edge/IoT deployments.
In this session, learn
• What does edge management do?
• What are the requirements of edge management?
• How does edge management differ from managing cloud, enterprise, mobile or the company laptops?
• The current state of the art
• Elements of an open edge management solution
• What does edge scale mean?
