Edge computing is all the rage right now. Some people even say it is more important for the future of IT than cloud computing itself. Is this real, or is this just hype? In theory, edge computing helps solve the challenges of bandwidth, latency, resiliency, and data sovereignty. Those benefits, however, will be hard to realize in the real world if you rely on a platform built by people just riding a wave. You need a real platform with real users, rooted in lessons from the trenches.
In this session, you will discover Eclipse ioFog and understand how it will help you reap the benefits of edge computing. You will also see a live demonstration involving the deployment of microservices to an Edge network using Kubernetes and ioFog.
