In this Kubernetes Master Class, Rancher Partner Packet Labs shows you the benefits of using k3s for edge applications.
The streamlined architecture of K3s, much like Kubernetes, provides an easily automated target for developers when shifting containerized application workload intelligence to edge sites, like regional points of presence, or client-adjacent machines, using common tooling (anything available to Kubernetes clusters); this pattern allows for modularizing the global deployment of highly distributed applications in a familiar way, for example, with configuration management and other provisioning tools for cluster and operations bootstrapping.
Using core infrastructure and networking patterns available today, K3s can fulfill the expectations of containerized workloads and accommodate the demands of an edge-minded application.
In this session, we'll discuss and demo:
Using K3s and traditional datacenter infrastructure and networking automation to architect globally distributed application substrates.
Edge compute patterns with K3s as a compute and storage API point of presence.
What infrastructure-edge capability means for highly distributed systems.
