LF Edge is launching a new webinar series, “On the Edge with LF Edge” that will feature project overviews and the opportunity for the community to ask questions. The series kicks off on April 2 with a look at Akraino Edge Stack.
Launched in 2018, and now a Stage 3 (or “Impact” stage) project under the LF Edge umbrella, Akraino Edge Stack is creating an open source software stack that supports a high-availability cloud stack optimized for edge computing systems and applications. Designed to improve the state of edge cloud infrastructure for enterprise edge, over-the-top (OTT) edge, and carrier edge networks, it offers users new levels of flexibility to scale edge cloud services quickly, to maximize the applications and functions supported at the edge, and to help ensure the reliability of systems that must be up at all times.
Before Akraino, developers had to download multiple open source software packages and integrate/test on deployable hardware, which prolonged innovation and increased cost. The Akraino technical community is dedicated to changing that and developer a way to solve this integration challenge with Blueprints, real code that brings everything together so users can download and deploy the edge stack in their own environment to address a specific edge use case.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- Introduction to Akraino and it’s R2 blueprints
- How Akraino community is ensuring the quality of the blueprints
- How to engage and contribute to the Akraino Community
