Living on the Edge
Running Cloud Native applications at edge locations is a growing trend in the field of Cloud Native technology. In this opening keynote, we will be discussing why Kubernetes and Edge are a great combination and what the state of technology is at this point.
Compute sustainability & An edge network for server heat re-use
by Thatcher Peskens
Thatcher Peskens is co-founder of Leafcloud, a truly green cloud provider, and will talk about the environmental impact of our collective compute usage. He will also introduce their unique "edge" approach of solving it as well as offer some concrete steps you can take to minimize your impact.
ArgoCD on the Edge Managing Kubernetes in unpredictable locations
Running workloads at the edge is initially the same as any other cluster. The difficulty comes when the connection to a central environment is not guaranteed to be up. How do you deal with deploying code to remote locations? How do you make sure that clusters are not manually altered at the edge? In this talk we go in to possible setups in which you can manage clusters without a continuous connection to those clusters.
Join us to hear some of the possible solutions to manage clusters at the edge!
Live Demo: provisioning a private region for on edge
by Dinesh Majrekar
Civo is the first pure play cloud native service provider, enabling companies to host core applications with ease. Helping speed up development, increase productivity and reduce costs. Civo’s easy-to-use managed Kubernetes service is fully CNCF certified and 100% Kubernetes upstream compatible making it the perfect solution for startups, SaaS providers, and established businesses worldwide.
Dinesh will give an overview of CivoStack's architecture and will give a live demo provisioning a private region for on edge.
Edge: The New DC
by Chris Urwin
In this session Chris will look at the increasing requirement to process data closer to the edge and how this is causing the management practices to become more aligned to way that servers are managed in the datacentre.
He will discuss the roadmap and tools that SUSE has to help manage some of these requirements.
Usecase: Deploying pods to watch pots in greenhouses
By Gerrit Tamboer & Sander ter Schure
Get ready for our Fullstaq customer case where we designed, build, and deployed a distributed Kubernetes platform across multiple edge locations. What are these edge locations? Greenhouses… Yes, you read that correctly. Unpredictable, extremely warm, humid greenhouses.
Protect data at the edge
By Timothy Dewin
Edge deployments suffer their own difficulties in data management. More and more we see that stateful data is generated at the edge and temporarily cached locally.
When dealing with unreliable connections it is crucially that this is being backed up so in event of a hardware failure data loss is avoided. During this session, we will discuss a hypothetical case where a retailer company has multiple stores that are running their local stock management system. In order to save costs, both the stateless and stateful workloads are running on K3S. With the help of Kasten K10, we will demo how we can back up this data to a local fileserver using NFS or S3 Object Storage. We will discuss how K10 can automatically discover changes in Kubernetes and backup the stateful sets.
Call For Proposals
Edgecase 2022 brings together hundreds of Kubernetes enthusiasts. Do you have any lessons learned in building, breaking, and bettering edge infrastructure? Or something related?
We have one 30 minute slot available, special reserved for our call for papers. We would love to give our main stage to our community members. This can be a single or a duo presentation. Don't be shy and share your ideas and the work that you are doing with an audience full of K8s fans!
