Title: The Kubernetes Scheduler, and Beyond
Containerization and microservices are state of the art in today’s Enterprise IT. In this area, Kubernetes has become the de-facto standard for orchestrating tens up to thousands of containers in cloud-based or private datacenters. More and more, these architectural paradigms become also relevant for industrial systems in on-premise, edge, and mixed cloud/edge environments. While Kubernetes can be considered as the most enhanced orchestration platform providing many extension points, it fails to fulfill some important requirements of industrial applications. This talk will introduce the vision of seamless computing in cloud-to-edge environments, present a generic model for realization, and focus on the important network-awareness aspect. Further insights will be given on a Kubernetes-based implementation, which is carried out in a publicly-funded project.
