How does PrEstoCloud support computing capability on edge nodes?
Edge nodes needs to offer the computing capability to process tasks assigned. Edge nodes generally have hardware resource limitations in reality. However, when managed efficiently these resources also provide possibility for handling data analytics without suffering latencies for sending everything into cloud. In the PrEstoCloud project, these nodes are capable of handling workloads at runtime since there is the edge computing infrastructure layer in the PrEstoCloud architecture. In this regard, the current industrial IoT deployments strongly rely on the availability of such edge nodes that should be able to execute jobs and easy to manage. If the edge device would be overloaded by a heavy workload, the container will be offloaded from the current edge node to cloud resources.
