Containers and Kubernetes provide a powerful, standards-based toolkit, rooted in open source, for delivering and running applications at the Edge, as well as centrally managing large-scale distributed infrastructure with grace, ease, and reliability. Many now agree that Kubernetes is the future for Edge and IoT, but understanding the containers/Kubernetes stack in relation to these unique use cases can be a formidable challenge.

In this webinar, Mirantis Solution Architect Kevin Ng will discuss some of the major categories of Edge use-cases, enumerate their technical challenges, and describe how Mirantis and our customers are building out a new generation of Kubernetes-native solutions to bring fluency and simplicity to Edge and IoT operations.

We will focus on k0s – the CNCF-validated open source single binary Kubernetes distribution – and its growing set of Kubernetes operators: including k0smotron (for centralized, declarative Kubernetes control plane fleet management), open source Cluster API (for declarative cloud and bare metal infrastructure management), as well as Autopilot (a managed service connected to k0s), an operator enabling declarative configuration of automated, non-disruptive cluster updates across your environments.

Among the Edge scenarios discussed will be:
‣ Distributed retail and POS
‣ Manufacturing control and monitoring
‣ Scientific process management and monitoring
‣ Distributed telecommunications
‣ Specialized Kubernetes applications for remote field, military, and other scenarios

Kevin will detail how aspects of the k0s distro, like control plane/worker separation and encrypted/authenticated worker-to-control plane connectivity, meet Edge use-case requirements for efficiency and risk reduction. He’ll also provide a ‘deep’ demo of how all the Kubernetes-native parts work together. This includes simplifying the bootstrapping process for a secure, production-ready, multi-cluster Kubernetes system using k0s, and how easy managing remote workers at scale can be when leveraging k0smotron.
