OpenStack at the Edge around the globe

“OpenStack in a Box,” as Beth Cohen of Verizon called it, is being used at the edge around the globe to deliver cloud-based services like WAN optimization, security, and routing, with more services in the works.

Edge Overview

Today, almost every industry sector needs near-instant data to be successful. Edge computing pushes applications, data and computing power services away from centralized points to the logical extremes of a network. It enables companies to put the right data in the right place at the right time, supporting fast and secure access. The result is an improved client experience and, oftentimes, a valuable strategic advantage. The decision to implement an edge computing architecture is typically driven by the need for location optimization, security, and most of all, speed.

Why is OpenStack ideal for edge computing?

OpenStack provides fundamental infrastructure building blocks that can be deployed anywhere, including the edge of the network. The flexible and modular nature of OpenStack means you can efficiently run the minimal services required at the edge, yet provide robust support for bare metal, container technologies and virtual machines.

OpenStack is already the most highly distributed infrastructure software, running in thousands of datacenters around the world, and many users in the telecom and retail industries are working now to advance the edge computing use case with OpenStack.
