How to manage multiple edges in the age of 5G

  1. Work in a development environment that’s representative of production. By ensuring a common framework and language support across all three layers, we can enable developers to continually test and run their code in whatever layer is cheapest. Often the inner layers will be cheapest for this purpose.
  2. Build tests to raise confidence in deployments. For testing, we can extend the concept of Edgecast’s Edge Verify to verify code correctness across layers. The resulting testing framework should have built-in performance analysis to further validate code at each layer, and it should also run the same suite of tests against canary deployments at each layer. Ensuring that code behaves identically at each different layer in the concentric circle is the primary requirement to enable failover and resilience.
  3. Built-in failover and resilience as use cases demand. This is a key new capability of our cohesive edge compute solution. Currently, failover and resilience are often afterthoughts in application architecture, because they can require tedious configuration of multiple components. This model of achieving resilience does not scale to a more complex (and capable) multi-edge world. Instead, we would enable developers to specify unique failover paths depending on the use case and on which layer the code is running. The three primary building blocks of these paths are:
