The Hard, and Not So Obvious, Challenges with Building, Maintaining and Operating a Global Edge Computing Network

Creating a network of edges is a much harder problem than it appears. It is more complicated than merely standing one or two servers in a few (hundred) far-flung data centers and installing an open source stack in each node.

That’s a start but there is far more to it than that. This session will cover just some of the hard and not-so-obvious things you'll need to do to build out a scalable application delivery platform at the edge, including:

How do you securely deploy an application image, (e.g. a container) to every edge in your network and run them as needed?

How do you do this several times a day if the application developer needs to apply fixes, add enhancements, etc.?

How do you ensure that your application is running in a location close to your end users, without amassing a massive infrastructure bill?

How do you remotely manage a large number of compute clusters, assuming each edge is some container-specific environment?

How do you implement network and resource isolation so no one workload impacts another?
How do you make sure everything works in concert, on a global basis?
