Linux distribution publisher SUSE is working closely with its partner ecosystem to better support Kubernetes edge computing. With noncloud networks projected to be processing the lion’s share of global data by 2025, developers have turned to containerization tools such as Kubernetes, which is poised to accelerate edge software deployment. Containers for edge development were a focus at the SUSECON Conference, enabling developers to create development environments that enable workloads to be moved from central clouds or data centers to the edge without conversion requirements. Containers are self-contained runtime environments that enable developers to minimize operating system variations that would typically stall performance of code. They include a software dependencies, libraries and binaries, as well as configuration files which govern...
