LOW LATENCY, EFFICIENCY, SECURITY
As critical infrastructure companies explore edge cloud opportunities such as virtual RAN (vRAN), multi-access edge computing (MEC), virtual business CPE, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), they need to ensure that the solutions they select will meet challenging requirements in areas such as security, ultra-low latency, telco-grade service uptime, small-footprint deployments, and streamlined operation.
Recognizing that no single open source solution has existed to address all these challenges, OpenStack is hosting the StarlingX open source project, which will create an open source software platform to enable critical infrastructure applications and services to be deployed at the network edge.
Wind River® is contributing technology from Wind River Titanium Cloud™, our proven virtualization software platform for critical infrastructure. We expect this project will accelerate the industry toward a common open source edge platform that spans a wide variety of use cases. We invite you to join this exciting, groundbreaking work. Download the StarlingX source code, try it out, and join the discussion at starlingx.io.
Akraino Edge Stack
As a longstanding contributor to multiple OpenStack core service projects, Wind River has a proven track record of contributing blueprints that address important problems applicable to critical infrastructure applications. Those contributions will continue in parallel with the commits to new projects that are part of StarlingX. In addition to our work with OpenStack, Wind River also recently announced our involvement with the Akraino Edge Stack open source project from the Linux Foundation, which will include code from StarlingX.
Wind River is committed to working with the open source community to build the critical infrastructure for the edge.
WIND RIVER TITANIUM CLOUD: KEY TECHNOLOGY FOR THE STARLINGX PROJECT
The Titanium Cloud portfolio includes the industry's only fully integrated, ultrareliable, and deployment-ready virtualization platforms that enable service providers to deploy virtualized services faster, at lower cost, and with guaranteed uptime.
When service uptime is critical for profitability, Titanium Cloud products ensure that virtualized services run when, where, and how they need to by providing:
- Flexibility to scale your services up, down, in, and out—rapidly and efficiently, deploying new services dynamically, when and where they are needed
- Streamlined installation, commissioning, and maintenance to minimize lifetime network operational costs
- Ultra-low latency a critical enabler for new edge applications and services
- Carrier grade reliability that you need to keep your services up—always
