Deploying Sunlight at the Edge

The Sunlight Edge system platform is a version of the Sunlight cluster that is optimised to run on resource constrained Edge computing environments. Targeting systems with memory up to a maximum of 128GB per server, single socket processor boards with reduced cores (maximum 16 physical cores) and lower density and resiliency storage drives, such as M.2 format NVMe. Sunlight Edge systems can be deployed on Intel embedded processor boards, such as Atom and Xeon-D boards.
