By now, you’ve likely heard all about how Kubernetes can simplify the deployment of applications at scale in traditional on-prem and cloud environments. But what about edge architectures that combine central data centers with workloads hosted at edge locations that are closer to end-users? Can Kubernetes underpin an edge computing platform, too? The answer is maybe. Although Kubernetes has potential as an edge computing solution, Kubernetes developers and users will need to overcome some hurdles before K8s is really ready for the edge. How Kubernetes Can Help Edge Computing Platforms Related: Data Centers and Edge Computing in 2021 and BeyondSome observers believe Kubernetes is ready for primetime as a way to host applications in edge environments already. Ammar Naqvi of Canonical, for example, writes that Kubernetes is a “key ingredient in...
