It is not the first time that Akraino Project on this blog, but perhaps it remains unknown to many. It is of course an open source project, a stack that is intended to improve the state of cloud infrastructure at the edge for carrier, provider and IoT networks. A project under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation, like so many others that are complementing this huge open ecosystem that is gradually gaining ground in different areas.
With Akraino you get new levels of flexibility to rapidly scale your services. Edge Computing or computing on the edge, as well as maximizing the applications or subscribers supported on each server, and helping to guarantee the reliability of the systems that are active at all times. Something vital considering the enormous importance of the cloud and connected devices today and in the near future ...
As well provides power processing closest to the devices that are connected to the cloud as clients to meet the latency requirements of the application. Namely:
- Increased speed and reduced latency in these types of systems at the edge.
- Improve the availability of services.
- Reduce the overhead of these types of deployments.
- Provides scalability for extensions.
- Addresses the security needs of current systems, which is key.
- Improves fault management.
- In addition, now LF has announced Release 3, with further improvements in this regard.
The community developers The Akraino project focuses on providing an API for developers (Edge and Middleware), software development kits (SDK) and works for cross-platform interoperability with third-party clouds.
