As momentum around the edge continues to grow there is a widely held thesis that you shouldn’t run VMs at the edge. But what about the VM-based applications that exist today? Converting every application to a container isn’t a viable solution for the near future. What is needed is an infrastructure platform that can support VMs and containers as equal citizens and provide the same level of services for both. The session will take a look at the evolution of VM/Container architectures that have been used to address the growing use of containers and then take look at the StarlingX project. StarlingX is a full featured cloud for the edge that uses Kubernetes to provision and manage cloud native applications and when needed OpenStack VMs. Other exciting technologies like Kubevirt, Kata containers and Virtlet will be discussed as solutions for making the ecosystem as flexible as possible.
