Kubernetes Native Infrastructure - Provider Access Edge


Blueprints in the Kubernetes-Native Infrastructure for Edge family leverage the best-practices and tools from the Kubernetes community to declaratively and consistently manage edge computing stacks from the infrastructure up to the workloads.

They support both containerized and VM-based applications on a common infrastructure and lifecycle-manage these applications using the Operator framework. Building on the Kubernetes Machine API allows users to deploy them consistently anywhere, from VMs in developer environments to bare metal production environments and from on-prem to public cloud.

Key Features and implementation

The family’s Provider Access Edge blueprint targets vRAN and MEC (e.g. AR/VR, machine learning, etc.) use cases. Its key features are:

  • Lightweight, self-managing clusters based on CoreOS
    and Kubernetes (OKD distro)
  • Support for VMs (via KubeVirt) and containers on a
    common infrastructure
