Edge Lightweight IoT (ELIOT) - IoT Gateway


ELIOT is an Akraino approved blueprint family and part of Akraino Edge Stack, which intends to develop a fully integrated edge network infrastructure and running edge computing applications on lightweight Edge Nodes. ELIOT targets on making the edge node a lightweight software stack which can be deployed on edge nodes which have limited hardware capacity by leveraging lightweight OS, container running environment and container orchestration applications, etc.

In this release, ELIOT Node Management is supported by Kubernetes and KubeEdge, respectively. KubeEdge extending native containerized application orchestration and device management to hosts at the Edge. Resource monitoring of all edge nodes is done from ELIOT Manager.

Key Features and implementation
  • Support ELIOT Node Management and device management by Kubernetes and KubeEdge, respectively.
  • Resource monitoring of all edge nodes is done from ELIOT Manager using cAdvisor and prometheus.
  • Support multiplatform architecture, i.e., x86 and aarch64
  • Support Heterogeneous deployment over cloud and edge nodes
  • Full CI/CD deployment ready and verified
  • Platform is ready to support different IOT Gateway use cases for Edge computing. Video Analytics is one of use case verified on this platform.
