We present the Cloud Native Digital Twin architecture of IndustryFusion Foundation (IFF). The goal of IFF is to develop an open-source platform to digitize factory processes and achieve carbon neutrality in metal processing. From the start, IFF chose Cloud Native and Kubernetes as the foundation of all workload management. The machine gateways, the factory servers, and cloud deployments all run on CNCF certified K8s clusters and are, therefore, independent of a specific Cloud or Edge Service Provider. The Digital Twin architecture is fully declarative, based on Semantic Web frameworks like RDF and JSON-LD. We developed a special K8s operator to monitor and deploy the factory processes as Apache Flink jobs, defined with Streaming SQL. We will also describe our experience running K8s and Cloud Native in a manufacturing environment, especially the challenges we overcame with the machine builders and factory owners to make them comfortable with the Cloud Native and K8s approach.
