Momentum is building for edge computing
With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) combined with global rollout of 5G (Fifth-generation wireless network technology), a perfect storm is brewing that will see higher speeds, extreme lower latency, and greater network capacity that will deliver on the hype of IoT connectivity.
And industry experts are bullish on the future. For example, Arpit Joshipura, The Linux Foundation’s general manager of networking, predicts edge computing will overtake cloud computing by 2025. According to Santhosh Rao, senior research director at Gartner, around 10% of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud today. He predicts this will reach 75% by 2025.
Back in April 2019, Docker and Arm announced a strategic partnership enabling cloud developers to build applications for cloud, edge, and IoT environments seamlessly on the Arm® architecture. We carried the momentum with Arm from that announcement into DockerCon 2019 in our joint Techtalk, where we showcased cloud native development on Arm and how multi-architecture containers with Docker can be used to accelerate Arm development.
A hands-on workshop for ARM developers
As part of our strategic partnership, Docker will be participating at ARM TechCon scheduled this October 8-10, 2019 at the San Jose Convention Center. Docker is excited to announce that we will be delivering a hands-on workshop exclusive to All-Access Pass holders in attendance:
Software Development for the Arm Architecture with Docker
October 8, 2019: 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM
This workshop builds on previously announced multi-architecture builds to introduce new tools and concepts to accelerate development and streamline deployments of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) workloads on Arm edge and IoT devices.
The workshop will provide a hands-on session with Docker Desktop on Windows or Mac, Amazon Web Services (AWS) A1 instances, and embedded Linux. The session will cover the latest Docker features to build, share, and run multi-architecture images with transparent support for Arm. Attendees will be provided with a 60-day trial license of Docker Desktop Enterprise including multiple examples and demos as well as the latest Raspberry Pi 4 development board to keep.
Our strategic partnership benefits both Arm developers and the Docker community by bringing together a common development platform where users can access Arm technology in the cloud, on the desktop, and with embedded and IoT devices. Arm and Docker are educating software developers on the benefits and simplicity Docker brings to the development process. We hope to see you at TechCon and your participation at the hands-on workshop.
