About this event

Come see how Firecracker and Liquid Metal can be used to get the most out of your bare-metal and transform your edge or data-centre.

We’ll start by covering Firecracker, the engine powering the AWS Lambda & Fargate service, a technology with security, isolation and efficiency at its heart. Then we’ll look at a new Weaveworks OSS project called reignite, that is part of a project code-named Liquid Metal, to see what value it brings when working with Firecracker.

See how Firecracker & Liquid Metal is going to be used with a Tier 1 Telecom operator to offer a competitive option for edge workloads requiring VM level tenancy/isolation & security whilst also meeting the minimal footprint and low resource overhead needs of a modern edge compute infrastructure.
