Container-based deployments that leverage on Kubernetes  orchestration benefit from its major key features like automatic scaling, self-monitoring, balancing and thousands of production-ready tools and applications. On the edge, additional requirements can be addressed by Kubernetes such as network latency , local data processing and improved resiliency and autonomy to overcome unattended and disconnected operations .
The introduction of blockchains and their decentralized nature is high-promising for the edge computing domain due to their pairing natures, though it remains to be seen whether and when the market adoption will fall in between the predictions.
