Living on the Edge – combining OpenStack, Kubernetes, and Tungsten Fabric to make Edge Computing a reality.
Edge compute deployments require optimized network and policy control, with a focus on reduced footprint.
This presentation will focus on the challenges introduced by these large-scale distributed deployments and on the latest enhancements introduced in Tungsten Fabric, OpenStack, and Kubernetes to deliver an optimized architecture for the Edge Compute use case
The following topics will be covered:
- How Remote Compute removes the need for Control Plane distribution while optimizing traffic breakout.
- How OpenStack/Kubernetes nested mode collapses VM and Container networking into a single consistent layer.
- How Container multi interfaces allows to extended service chaining beyond OpenStack and monolithic VNFs to Kubernetes and micro-services CNFs.
- How a single security framework provides distributed policy enforcement, encryption, micro-segmentation, and Layer 7 host-based firewalling across Bare Metal, containers, and Virtual Machines.
- How a reduced vRouter footprint can be leveraged on small compute nodes with constrained cpu and memory.
