Wind River, a developer of software for the intelligent edge, announced that T-Systems is using the Wind River Cloud Platform edge cloud infrastructure software for its EdgAIR secure and high-performance edge computing platform.
T-Systems’ EdgAIR platform can be connected to a campus network by supporting various network and protocol standards (5G, Wi-Fi 6, TSN, etc.). The platform is secure and delivers low latency (<10 milliseconds) for real-time onsite applications such as the processing of massive amounts of data. EdgAIR runs on a closed enterprise network but can be combined with a public cloud to enable hybrid cloud offerings. It can also provide analytics that enable teams to evaluate performance and other information in real-time while supporting operational technology (OT) standards and workloads.
The platform leverages the open source project StarlingX to simplify Day 1 and Day 2 operations by providing single-pane-of-glass (SPoG) management and zero-touch automated deployment of thousands of nodes, no matter their location, according to the company.
It also provides fully automated and hitless software updates and upgrades across a geo-distributed cloud, with rollback capabilities. The platform scales from a single compute node at the network edge to enable ultra-low-cost deployments up to thousands of nodes to meet the needs of high-value applications as they grow.
