With corona virus spreading worldwide, 62% Rural kids are missing their classes since the Pandemic started, due to no or very low internet bandwidth. While teachers and students are predominantly from surrounding areas, there is no need for the video feeds to be processed 100s or 1000s of miles away from the rural network. Processing at the edge will allow localized educational platform to operate with low internet bandwidth.
Business use cases
Business Cost - Initial Build Cost Target Objective
Host Video applications, Health Application, LMS on the edge, control plane on the cloud, and media plane close to customer site such as MEC servers in telco central offices.
We choose X86 server to deploy the MEC platform to reduce the cost.
•2 X86 Nodes ( The PowerEdge XE2420 provides a short-depth, dense, Dual-socket, 2U server)
•Kubernetes v 1.17 (Open Source)
•GPU (NVIDIA V100/s or NVIDIA RTX6000) for AR/VR and AI
Business Cost – Target Operational Objective
It more like a cloud platform, but it's specific for the edge site.
•It needs Helm and Ansible for the automation and management tools to keep operational cost lower
•Maintain a mixed edge platform including x86 and ARM.
•GPU ( NVIDIA V100/s or NVIDIA RTX6000)
•Both ARM and X86 can support it.
Security mechanisms that can be implemented at each layer of abstraction.

Tami COVID-19 Blueprint Family: RuralEdge
2 PowerEdge XE2420 bare metal machines Dual-socket, 2U server, 1 10G switch, 1 GPU
Scale & Type
For the smallest deployment, this requires 2 X86 bare metal machines. For large deployments, this could span to large number of bare metal machines.
