Network connected devices are getting more powerful to support emerging technologies such as 5G, connected cars (Telematics), remote medicine (Telemedicine) and other distributed applications. This technology trend is often referred to as Edge, or Edge Computing.

The focus today is on how to better manage distributed resources, applications and how to best package them for optimal performance. Recent discussions have focused on container workloads, however serverless, virtual machines, cloudlets and unikernels are all viable options for application deployment and execution. Is there one right approach?

This panel will explore and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each of these technologies, coupled with a discussion of technology maturity and market forces involved in delivering the right platform for creating practical solutions to fit the application.
