The Edge Lab is an open reference architecture that accelerates collaboration by providing a proven, repeatable and portal automation stack for edge infrastructure. The lab is modular and vendor neutral so that components can be changed out easily.

This presentation shows the initial design: 4 RPis installing K3s in a self-contained PXE cluster. The small four system physical cluster explores how a real bare metal cluster would operate in an edge environment. Session will build a real working cluster from nothing.

Once installed, the Edge Lab enable fast resets of the environment via automation and maintains ongoing operations for the system via APIs. The cluster demo goes from completely fresh RPi through a complete system life cycle including installing K3s to demonstrate a usable Edge environment.
