Kubernetes on ARM: a case study

At KrakenSystems we’re working with various IoT devices. They are our main infrastructure for collecting data and sending them to further aggregating pipelines. For now, they are implemented as Beaglebone black devices, armv7l hard float CPU, AM335x 1GHz ARM® Cortex-A8 and only 512MB RAM. In this blogpost we’re covering use case and rationale for using kubernetes on such underpowered devices. Those devices perform simple services. Reading Modbus registers, or xbee protocol, or attaching to OBD (On-Board Diagnostic for vehicles), parsing the data, serializing in the protobuf format and sending on the message bus. [Read More]
