OpenStack and Linux Foundation joint blueprint on Edge Computing

In the past decade, there has been a concerted effort among an all companies to move the IT infrastructure to centralized clouds, enabled by virtualization. With the emergence of new technologies such as augmented and virtual reality, autonomous cars, drones and IOT with smart cities, data is increasingly being produced at the user end of the network. These use cases demand real-time processing and communication between distributed endpoints, creating the need for efficient processing at the network edge.

AT&T and Intel has explored several Edge architecture options to run Edge applications and Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) at the Edge and developed a full Edge solution using containerized OpenStack, Kubernetes, and ONAP, etc.,

We will share Open Source based Edge reference architecture which converges OpenStack and Linux Foundation communities to achieve the goals together without duplication of effort as the time, resources and funding are limited in the industry.
