Kubernetes (K8s) is the key component in the data centres modernising and adopting cloud-native development architecture to deliver applications using containers. Capabilities such as orchestrating VMs and containers together make Kubernetes the go-to platform for modern application infrastructure adopters. Telecom operators are also using Kubernetes to orchestrate their applications in a distributed environment involving many edge nodes. But due to the large scale of telco networks – which includes disparate cloud systems – Kubernetes adoption requires different architectures for different use cases. Specifically, if we look at a use case where Kubernetes is used to orchestrate edge workloads, there are various frameworks and public cloud managed Kubernetes solutions are available that offer different benefits and gives telecom operator...

BRUSSELS, Belgium, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Eclipse Foundation, one of the world’s largest open source software foundations, as well as the Edge Native Working Group, today announced the release of a new white paper entitled “EdgeOps: A New Vision For Edge Computing” The paper articulates a new approach for building software solutions for edge computing environments, with an emphasis on open source. EdgeOps is an adaptation of DevOps, with a focus on software, tooling and processes for edge computing environments. It specifically addresses the challenges of edge computing, such as power, security, latency, communication protocols, etc., and takes into account the characteristics of edge computing solutions and associated deployment approaches required in an edge environment. The white paper is available now as a free...
