Edge Computing Operations: Day 1 Deployment and Day 2 Management

Edge Computing,  and more generally geographically distributed edge
 computing, presents a number of new challenges for cloud management operations.
  In this session, we will discuss learnings from our investigations in the 
area of Distributed Edge Computing.  We will review requirements and describe 
a proposed system model; discussing topics such as centralized management 
versus edge autonomy and the need for both.  We will also discuss some key 
challenges and solution options for areas of sub-cloud installation, shared 
centralized OpenStack Services, configuration synchronization strategies across 
sub-clouds for various OpenStack components as well as approaches for dealing with 
software management of OpenStack software running on 100s of distributed OpenStack nodes.
