Distributed Cloud

Wind River Studio provides a complete cloud-native infrastructure software stack, based on the StarlingX open source project.

Distributed cloud is essential to support the use cases of the future.

Use cases including IIoT, telecom, video delivery, and other demanding, low-latency applications require the complete Kubernetes-based cloud infrastructure software stack, from the edge to the core of the network, provided by Wind River® Studio Cloud Platform.

Wind River Studio Distributed Cloud Solutions

Distributed Cloud

Heterogeneous distribution of Kubernetes clouds. Includes a central cloud (system controller) and remote, geographically dispersed edge clouds. Supports centralized deployment of a container platform on sub-clouds with sub-cloud health monitoring and management.

Host Management

Provides full lifecycle management of the host. Detects and automatically handles host failures and initiates recovery. Also provides monitoring and fault reporting for cluster connectivity, critical process failures, resource utilization thresholds, interface states, and more.

Fault Management

Provides a framework for infrastructure services via API to set, clear, and query customer alarms as well as generate logs for significant events. Maintains an active alarm list and provides a REST API to query alarms and events.

Software Management

Automated deployment of software updates for security and/or new functionality. Includes an end-to-end rolling upgrade solution and supports in-service and reboot required patches.

Configuration Management

Manages installation through auto-discovery of new nodes, managing installation parameters, and bulk provisioning of nodes through the XML file. Also handles nodal configuration and inventory discovery.


Service Management

Includes a high availability manager with an N+M redundancy model or N across multiple nodes. Uses multiple messaging paths to avoid split-brain communication failures. Also provides active or passive monitoring of services.

Runs at the
scale you need

Studio Cloud Platform can run on a single server consuming as little as two cores, or two servers for use cases requiring high availability. It can scale up to thousands of nodes running tens of thousands of services.

Keep your system running

Built-in high-availability features ensure Studio Cloud Platform will help you meet your SLAs. Also, the ability to do in-service upgrades means you don’t need to bring your system down for updates.

Manage your system, manage your cost

Studio includes orchestration and automated operations with features such as zero-touch provisioning and single-pane-of-glass management. Keep operational costs under control by making it easier to run a complex geo-distributed network.
