Edge computing industry is increasingly using cloud technologies for seamless migration of workloads across edges and clouds. For seamless mobility workloads, K8s is a key requirement for all CSPs. Also, K8s is being thought to be good infrastructure orchestrator for all deployment types (VMs, containers and functions). As an example, collection/learning/inference components of a typical analytics app are distributed across edges and clouds. Many applications, including ONAP distributed analytics work assumes that the edges and clouds are K8s enabled.

This panel discusses existing work and novel ways of realizing a consistent app lifecycle management across distributed clouds using the extensibility of K8s ecosystem. This work is currently happening in ONAP as part of the Edge Automation effort and we see this impactful to other open source efforts such as Akraino, K8s Edge WG etc.
