Practical Cluster Computing for Modern Edge Devices

Authors: Joshua Adkins, Joseph Noor, Mani Srivastava, Prabal Dutta


Existing edge computing frameworks have not yet fully incorporated resource constrained sensors and actuators into their computing clusters due to the difficulties in managing and programming these devices. Those seeking to deploy applications in this environment are thus left managing separate clusters of compute nodes and embedded devices, with the difficulty of using the embedded nodes posing a high barrier to entry for experts and non-experts alike. This ultimately limits computing on these devices, hindering application discovery and optimization. This presentation discusses EdgeRM, the first open-source resource manager that extends to the true edge of an IoT network. The agent processes expose new classes of resources(e.g. sensors) on highly-constrained systems and provide a means to execute isolated and portable general-purpose programs compiled to WebAssembly.
