Eclipse ioFog 2.0 Advances EdgeOps
The Eclipse ioFog 2.0 release makes it faster and easier to develop production-grade edge applications and manage edge AI deployments. Here’s how.
Red Hat’s Skupper project has replaced the former Service Mesh component in Eclipse ioFog to simplify application connections. Now developers can set up application connections using a simple yaml configuration file.
The release also includes new features that give developers more flexible and adaptable EdgeOps capabilities.
For example, developers can now add, remove, and move ioFog Agents between Edge Compute Networks (ECNs) at runtime. Agents are lightweight, universal container runtimes that are installed on edge devices to manage the life cycle of microservices, data volumes, edge resources, and other assets. With Eclipse ioFog 2.0, developers have new agility to take advantage of live orchestration, and to migrate and drain microservices and applications.
Eclipse ioFog 2.0 also provides new abilities to:
- Prune images based on policies
- Manage multiple image registries
- Mount data volumes in microservices containers
The Jakarta EE Working Group has released the Jakarta EE 9.1 Platform and Web Profile specifications and related Technology Compatibility Kits (TCKs).
