Kubernetes at the Edge

When a leading software company that specializes in retail theft prevention and real-time point of sale analytics needed a way to manage thousands of in-store edge applications across the country, Redapt helped implement a solution.

In a nutshell...

1
The problem

The company was working on a software stack that could be deployed at thousands of retail locations for clients. These stacks acted as micro datacenters, which meant they needed a way to manage them efficiently.

2
The solution

Redapt developed a proof of concept solution built upon Google Anthos due to its native Kubernetes support and its ability to scale the management of clusters across thousands of micro datacenters.

3
The outcome

The company has been able to continue the build of their custom tech stack with the confidence of knowing a platform is available to handle their future management and operations needs.

Moment of clarity

Although the company was already somewhat familiar with Anthos, it quickly became apparent they would benefit from a proof of concept deployment of the platform in order to quickly shift their focus towards the development of their innovative new product.

What the company needed

The company was working on a next generation retail security solution that could be deployed to retail locations nationwide. 

Since each location would in essence act like a micro-datacenter, the company was looking for ways they could efficiently manage their technology solution across thousands of locations.

In addition, the company had only recently moved from VMs to Kubernetes, which meant they needed a solution that could be relatively easy to onboard.

While the company had heard of Anthos, they were interested in learning more about its potential as a platform.

Our recommendation

  • A proof of concept of Anthos with Redapt’s own datacenter acting as a retail location.
  • Deployment of the company’s software stack to an Anthos cluster for testing.
  • Integration of custom technology from the company’s corporate network into our datacenter.

The end result

The company was able to move forward with their project knowing they would have the ability to manage their micro datacenters at scale.

  • Anthos integration capabilities

    for when their project was ready.

  • Proof of concept results

    to measure against when deploying Anthos.

  • A global integration partner

    to deploy micro-datacenters to retail customers.

  • Peace of mind

    knowing they could confidently move forward with their ambitious project.
