SOFTWARE PLATFORM DESIGN STRATEGIES FOR CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE
A Heavy Reading White Paper Produced for Wind River Systems, Inc.
Multiple industries, including industrial, medical, telecommunications, transportation, and more, are increasingly adopting software platforms to deliver their services and run their operations. Because these high-stakes applications have specific requirements regarding low latency, performance, and security, industries are evaluating whether every application needs to run on a new class of critical infrastructure, rather than on bespoke, stand-alone network infrastructure. This paper discusses these new classes of applications across multiple market verticals and offers insights into how those systems will need to run in order to be successful.
- Critical application security requirements across development and release, commercial monitoring and upgrade lifecycle, and operational reach expansion
- The impact of mobile on critical infrastructure, including the role of 5G and network slicing
- A real-life use case that ties together security concerns, edge requirements, and network slicing
