When deploying applications at the edge, containers are all the rage and Kubernetes is making its way out of the cloud data center but the IoT edge requires additional considerations in areas such as security and scalability. Characterized by assets such as factory floors, oil rigs, wind turbines and vehicles, the IoT edge involves an inherently heterogenous mix of technologies and domain knowledge and we need to tame the complexity by enabling a variety of deployment models in a more open and standardized way.

Part of LF Edge, Project EVE aims to do for the IoT edge what Android did for mobile by creating an open computing engine that simplifies the development, orchestration and security of both legacy and cloud-native applications on distributed edge hardware. Supporting containers, VMs and unikernels, EVE provides a flexible foundation for IoT edge computing deployments with choice of hardware, application and cloud.

This session will highlight the key challenges of edge computing, the unique requirements of the IoT edge and why EVE is critical for IoT scale by serving as an open, standardized edge computing engine. We will host a brief demo and talk to what’s next, including integrating EVE with Kubernetes to extend the benefits from the data center to the IoT edge.
