Cloud computing has become the de facto IT best practice and Kubernetes is defining the new norm to this end. Yet to the contrary, edge computing is creating buzz as it offloads processing from centralized server farms to peripheral devices closer to users, catering to enterprises with geographically distributed users.

Alas, edge computing involves heterogeneous and distant nodes causing mayhem for operators and a far cry from uniform management. Haier, a global manufacturer giant, is plagued by the pain as it delivers online services to inter-continental users via limp edge nodes at over a hundred sites, each incapable of running a Kubernetes cluster. We present an edge computing extension on top of Kubernetes with a success story in Haier, where we use one multi-tenant Kubernetes control plane to manage distributed satellite devices and nodes for efficient and unified management.
