Edge Administrator

The person who manages local deployment of a SLATE edge cluster.

Examples:

  • Shawn McKee for the University of Michigan SLATE edge cluster within the physics department

Requirements:

  • A reliable and automated way to install a SLATE edge cluster (e.g. build from the network or local media).
  • Allocate resource to SLATE virtual organization within a platform

Responsibilities:

  • Basic hardware support (racking, cabling, replacing failed hardware, etc)
  • Initial setup (running the installer, inputting basic network configuration)

(Lincoln) One may imagine a deployment guide for edge administrators that looks something like this.
