Edge computing puts cloud-computing software infrastructure on embedded-class processing platforms to reduce latency and uplink bandwidth consumption. Ranging from 1-core to 16-core devices, integrating important I/O features and integrating a hardware root of trust, the Layerscape family is ideal for edge-computing platforms. Complementary software like EdgeScale increases these platforms ease of use and accelerates customers' time to market. This session provides an overview of running Edge compute applications on Layerscape family of processors. It covers the concept of Edge computing and why it is needed, and goes on to elaborate the various use-cases where it can be used. It explains how customers can use the Layerscape SDK to run container based Edge compute applications, and leverage popular Edge Compute frameworks from AWS, Azure, Alibaba amongst others.
