Under the auspices of The Linux Foundation, The Akraino Edge Stack project is creating an open source software stack that supports high-availability cloud services optimized for edge computing systems and applications, running in virtual machines or containers. Designed to improve the state of edge cloud infrastructure for enterprise edge, OTT edge, carrier edge and networks, Akraino Edge Stack will offer users new levels of flexibility to scale edge cloud services quickly, to maximize the applications or subscribers supported on each server, and to help ensure the reliability of systems that must be up at all times.
”This project will bring the extensive work AT&T and Intel have already done to create edge technology that is hardened to address critical infrastructure requirements. These include the high availability, fault management, and performance management needed for continuous 24/7 operation, as well as the low latency, high performance, scalability, and security needed for edge and IoT workloads. We're pleased to welcome it to The Linux Foundation and invite the participation of others as we work together to form Akraino Edge Stack.Jim Zemlin Executive Director, The Linux Foundation
