Virtual K8s: Application Fleet Management at Scale

The deployment of k8s clusters at the Edge can range in the 1000s. The number of k8s clusters quickly grows into an operational and management problem. This requires a holistic approach to managing clusters and applications. This session introduces a Kubernetes based solution for Application Fleet Management at scale called Virtual K8s (vk8s). The K8s abstraction layer today currently manages each site & device individually. With federated approaches, this is an operational challenge. Instead of managing a large number of clusters, you will learn the concent of cluster digital twin called Virtual k8s. vk8s is k8s API compatible tool that replicates across k8s clusters. You will learn the architectural concepts and challenges in our journey in managing more than 1,000 devices. A live demo of fleet application management across global device deployments will be also shown.
