Today, the Linux Foundation announced LF Edge to help build open source platforms and community around Edge Infrastructure. We’re just at the start of the effort with projects and vendors working in parallel without coordination. We think this LF Edge initiative is important because the Edge is already a patchwork of different data centers, infrastructure and platforms.

RackN has been designing our DEEP Edge federated control around open Digital Rebar because we know that having a shared abstraction at the physical layer makes everything we build above easier to sustain and more resilient.

We’re excited to be part of this effort and help that you’ll collaborate us to build some amazing Edge capabilities.

Note: We’re also watching the OpenStack Foundation work with Edge also. Hopefully, we’ll see collaboration between these groups since there are already overlapping projects.
