NTT has joined an open source project "Akraino" for edge computing systems and applications under The Linux Foundation*1.
Akraino integrates open source software (OSS) into a whole platform optimized for edge computing*2. The Akraino Edge Stack is designed to meet the requirements of edge cloud infrastructure for enterprise edge, OTT edge, and carrier edge networks. It will support a broad range of Telco, Enterprise, and Industrial Edge uses, focused on creating blueprints with CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery) that will consist of validated hardware and software configurations against a defined use and performance specifications.
Our aim is to ensure the acceleration of the edge computing strategy, digital transformation through R&D and collaborative development within the Akraino project.
*1 A nonprofit organization founded in 2000 involved in promoting technology development and commercial use of OSS projects. Hundreds of companies from every part of the world have become members.
*2 A concept to realize distribution of functions and processes and various new services by processing data with facilities close to terminal devices in addition to terminal devices and clouds
