Two+ years and still going strong: Edge Computing Working Group Update

The Edge Computing Working Group continues to work on defining use cases, identifying project synergies, and architecting a MVP based on the work we have already done in defining the use cases.  Join us as the panel discusses the work that we have been doing and how we have been engaged with the larger OpenStack, OpenInfrastructure and Open Source communities over the past year, and what we will be working on in the coming year. Projects and work includes:

  • Mapping Use cases to MVP architectures
  • Keystone federation development to support edge use cases
  • Glance support for federated models

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn just how much the Edge Computing Working Group’s projects have advanced over the past year as the work has expanded to other projects within both the OpenStack and the wider Open Source communities.  This is an opportunity to learn how you can participate in driving innovation in this exciting new superset of the cloud computing technology, as the working group continues its mission to provide requirements to help vendors and Open Source projects create tools and features in support of the use cases.  This session will also serve as an introduction and roadmap, if you will, for the planned Edge forums and technical sessions that are part of the PTG.
