The wide adoption of the recently coined fog and edge computing paradigms alongsideconventional cloud computing creates a novel scenario, known as the cloud continuum, whereservices may benefit from the overall set of resources to optimize their execution. To operatesuccessfully, such a cloud continuum scenario demands for novel management strategies, enablinga coordinated and efficient management of the entire set of resources, from the edge up to thecloud, designed in particular to address key edge characteristics, such as mobility, heterogeneity andvolatility. The design of such a management framework poses many research challenges and hasalready promoted many initiatives worldwide at different levels. In this paper we present the resultsof one of these experiences driven by an EU H2020 project, focusing on the lessons learnt from a realdeployment of the proposed management solution in three different industrial scenarios. We thinkthat such a description may help understand the benefits brought in by a holistic cloud continuummanagement and also may help other initiatives in their design and development processes.
