Overview of the remote compute nodes approach¶
Remote compute nodes is one of the approaches to the implementation of the edge computing concept offered by MOSK. The topology consists of a MOSK cluster residing in a data center, which is extended with multiple small groups of compute nodes deployed in geographically distanced remote sites. Remote compute nodes are integrated into the MOSK cluster just like the nodes in the central site with their configuration and life cycle managed through the same means.
Along with compute nodes, remote sites need to incorporate network gateway components that allow application users to consume edge services directly without looping the traffic through the central site.
