K8s Edge storage with Lightbits and Sherlock

Abstract: In this talk, we will use Sherlock, an open source performance framework to run and stress databases on K8s (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLserver and MongoDB). The Lightbits CSI driver is utilizing NVMe/TCP as the transport. NVMe over TCP was added to the Linux kernel in version 4.10 and has been maintained by a growing community of developers from various companies. For the storage part we will use Lightbits software to create the fastest possible software defined storage solution for K8s.

Vehicle Computing: Vision and Challenges

Abstract: Vehicles have been majorly used for transportation in the last century. With the proliferation of onboard computing and communication capabilities, we envision that future connected vehicle (CVs) will be serving as a mobile computing platform in addition to their conventional transportation role for the next century. In this article, we present the vision of Vehicle Computing, i.e., CVs are the perfect computation platforms, and connected devices/things with limited computation capacities can rely on surrounding CVs to perform complex computational tasks. We also discuss Vehicle Computing from several aspects, including several key and enabling technologies, case studies, open challenges, and the potential business model.

CPS Robot Blueprint family


Robotics is an important tool for achieving the SDGs. Workers will be able to focus on decent work and new innovation by improvement of labor productivity , as a result, they can move toward new economic growth. However, there are industries where it is difficult to apply current robotics. For example, agriculture, restaurant, food factory, etc.. The biggest challenge current robotics faces in the industry is how to control elastic and non-uniform object under variable circumstance. To apply robotics to any industry easily, this blueprint family develop and provide open software stack which can achieve the challenge.

Fukano Haruhisa Fujitsu


Robotics Edge HPC - Human safety and emergency commands are utmost priority for robot operation. Achieving reliable voice command response in mobile / SWaP-constrained robots – in the presence of servo motor noise, background conversations and sounds, and intermittent Internet dropout – requires high performance computing under severe size and power constraints. Noise removal, false positive resilience, variability in human commands, and personnel / proprietary sound privacy requirements pose difficult challenges. At the same time robots must utilize cloud connectivity for essential microservices (e.g. non-real-time such as location, coordination with other robots), containerization, orchestration, and maintenance telemetry. For the CPS Robot SSES Blueprint, Signalogic is adding 20,000 word vocabulary onboard ASR (automatic speech recognition) to demonstrate the onboard HPC approach

PCIe Net enable Object Storage at Edge

As the edge computing prevailing, the number of edge clusters are growing in million scales. The traditional mega data center with millions servers located in one site evolve to millions of small clusters worldwide. Hence we need a new solution not only account for this architecture shift, but also for energy constrains.

In this talk, we will introduce a novel PCIe-based system-level interconnect model and arm based micro-server cluster to make clusters more compact and energy-saving. As the practical application, we use object storage as an example and show how well the energy efficiency this architecture can achieve.

Keywords: PCIe Net, object storage, micro-server cluster, edge computing.

NextArch at the Edge

Cloud-native infra on edge clouds

Modern computing workloads are moving to the edge (eg CDN or MEC networks) to achieve better performance and security. However, traditional cloud native toolchains and architecture are too heavy and too slow for edge cloud’s resource constraints and performance requirements. WebAssembly is emerging as a secure, lightweight, high performance, and Kubernetes-compatible sandbox for edge-based microservices.

Streaming functions

A typical IoT edge application consists of data streams from devices or other sources, and a time series database for data storage and analysis. A streaming function intercepts the data stream, processes each data point, and then decides the next actions (eg to save to DB or to raise an alert). It allows streaming data to be processed on the fly.

Edge AI

Edge data often needs to be processed locally or on the close edge for performance and security. Edge functions could apply AI models for inference on heterogeneous hardware (eg GPU, NPU, TPU and AI accelerator chips) on edge devices or edge cloud nodes.

Realtime Collaboration on Web

HTTP/3 and WebTransport protocol enables presence events with real-time synchronization, implements decentralized collaboration features on browser.

Where the Edges Meet, Infra Forms, Apps Land and Work Flows: Overview of the Public Cloud Edge Interface (PCEI) blueprint and the MEC Federation solution based on PCEI for ETSI - LF Edge Hackathon 2022.

The PCEI blueprint provides the multi-domain orchestrator to enable infrastructure orchestration and cloud native application deployment across public clouds (core and edge), edge clouds, interconnection providers and network operators. The notable innovations in PCEI are the integration of Terraform as a microservice to enable DevOps driven Infrastructure-as-Code provisioning, integration of Ansible as a microservice to enable automation of configuration of infrastructure resources (e.g., servers) and deployment of Kubernetes and its critical components (e.g., CNIs) on the edge cloud, and introduction of a workflow engine to manage the stages and parameter exchange for infrastructure orchestration and application deployment as part of a composable workflow. PCEI can help simplify the process of multi-domain orchestration by enabling uniform representation of diverse services, features, attributes, and APIs used in individual domains as resources and data in the code that can be written by developers and executed by the orchestrator, effectively making the infrastructure orchestration across multiple domains DevOps-driven.
