Edge computing has become a clear strategic goal for many
enterprises, for some it is already an absolute necessity.

In the last year, we have seen enterprises from a wide array of industries begin to include Kubernetes in their strategic edge initiatives. This is due in part to the release of k3s, the lightweight, small footprint Kubernetes developed by Rancher Labs. The result is that edge devices can now take advantage of the same advanced tooling that was developed originally for cloud to deliver better, more robust and less costly experiences.

This whitepaper documents how k3s and Arm come together to be an ideal edge solution.

In this whitepaper, we'll cover:

  •  Container basics and the role of Kubernetes in container orchestration
  • The design principles of k3s and cluster architectures for the edge
  • How Arm and Rancher together are an ideal solution for edge computing.
