Over the last couple of years, Edge Computing has emerged to become the most hot trend in infrastructure. Data gravity and the arrival of 5G networks are driving stateful and specialized workloads to the edge, driving infrastructure to iterate at the speed of software. This talk will showcase OpenStack HCI features enabling Edge functionalities (ressources control with containers and more). We’ll present the latest capabilities of OpenStack TripleO for supporting multiple Ceph clusters on Distributed Edge nodes, in support for Distributed NFV, an emerging use case that allows using less control planes and to spread your VNF on multiple datacenters and edge deployments. We will also review the requirements to maintain carrier grade performance for virtualized or containerized workloads at the edge, by moving processing functions closer to the end user or data collection point and minimizing the latency impact on the applications to maintain end to end quality of service."
