EDGE MESH MICROSERVICE MOBILITY

Today there's no infinite, scale-out elasticity of public clouds at the edge. Application providers often have to design for individual edge outages as well as demand peaks (hot spots) that may overrun edge node capacity.


Edge Mesh Mobility offers you the ability to deploy workloads to multiple points in the 2You.io cloudlet and route end points to the best available node in the mesh based on the workload requested, its proximity to end points, node load, geography, and workload policy. As a result, edge applications get deployed in a scaled-out mesh that is resilient to outages and demand hot spots and can seamlessly span both distributed edge and centralized compute footprint.

How it Works


Access: End points consume networked microservices deployed in the 2You.io Edge Microservice Mobility Mesh using network resource URIs - a way that is location, deployment, and topology neutral. It also remains neutral to transport protocols used by end points to access the services deployed in it (HTTP, SSL, MQTT, etc.) and is designed to introduce minimal latency when routing end points to cloud nodes.


Mobility: Providing horizontal workload mobility across the same deployment tier, for example, for redundancy purposes. It also supports vertical mobility for workloads to move between the edge, central enterprise data centers, and public clouds.


Deployment: From the application provider's point of view, our mobility mesh offers “publish once, run anywhere” abstraction of the distributed footprint. The providers publish a microservice workload into the central 2You.io API point together with deployment policy and metadata, and the microservice becomes instantaneously accessible in the mesh to the end points.

Workloads: From an application provider's point of view, our mobility mesh offers “publish once, run anywhere” abstraction of the distributed footprint. Just publish a microservice workload into the central 2You.io API point together with deployment policy and metadata, and the microservice becomes instantaneously accessible in the mesh to the end points.


Reporting: As the end points access the microservice mesh across the distributed footprint, the mesh makes centralized transaction reporting available to the application provider's centralized API point.
