Overview of Distributed Cloud¶
StarlingX Distributed Cloud configuration supports an edge computing solution by providing central management and orchestration for a geographically distributed network of StarlingX systems.
The Distributed Cloud system is designed to meet the needs of edge-based data centers in which NFC worker resources are localized for maximum responsiveness, while management and control functions are centralized for efficient administration. The system supports a scalable number of StarlingX edge systems, centrally managed and synchronized over L3 networks from a StarlingX central region. Each edge system is also highly scalable, from a single StarlingX Simplex deployment to a full Standard Cloud configuration with storage nodes.
The architecture features a synchronized distributed control plane for reduced latency, with an autonomous control plane such that all subcloud local services are operational even during loss of Northbound connectivity to the Central Region.
