Wind River® Cloud Platform is an open source, production-grade distributed Kubernetes for managing edge cloud infrastructure. Based on the OpenStack StarlingX project, Cloud Platform represents a compilation of best-in-class open source technology that delivers the features needed to effectively deploy and manage distributed networks.
Some of the key benefits customers get from deploying Cloud Platform include:
- Controlling operational cost: Cloud Platform simplifies deployment, management, and maintenance. By offering single-pane-of-glass management with automated software updates and upgrades, your distributed cloud network becomes manageable without your having to disproportionately scale up staff. Furthermore, integrated end-to-end security helps mitigate risk, giving you less to worry about.
- Establishing market leadership: Zero-touch provisioning, automatic updates, and dynamic scaling are a few of the features that make Cloud Platform ideal for distributed networks. With the tools needed to easily deploy and manage a diverse distributed cloud network, Cloud Platform is the infrastructure that service providers need now to be first to market with 5G vRAN at scale.
- Enabling new revenue streams: A fundamental premise of 5G is that it will enable new low-latency use cases such as autonomous driving, robotics, and a myriad of yet to be imagined innovative services. With an out-of-the-box, optimized, ultra–low-latency, small footprint infrastructure, Cloud Platform offers a highly flexible infrastructure that will grow with your business.
- Enabling production-ready Kubernetes: Leverage deployment-ready open source with commercial testing, hardening, and lifecycle support and maintenance. Cloud Platform is a fully supported, open source platform that you can deploy today.
