LOW LATENCY, EFFICIENCY, SECURITY
5G is rapidly approaching and accelerating edge cloud opportunities such as virtual RAN (vRAN), multi-access edge computing (MEC), virtual business CPE, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT.) As carriers and other critical infrastructure companies explore these opportunities, they need to ensure that the solutions they select will meet challenging requirements in areas such as security, ultra-low latency, telco-grade service uptime, small-footprint deployments, and streamlined operation.
Recognizing that no single open source solution has existed to address all these challenges, OpenStack is hosting the StarlingX open source pilot project, which provides a fully featured open source distributed cloud that is ideal for supporting critical infrastructure applications and services at the network edge.
For organizations that require full lifecycle support and services around an open source solution, Wind River® provides Wind River Titanium Cloud™ as a commercially supported version of StarlingX. With Titanium Cloud, Wind River provides value-added services to ensure our customers’ success using the most advanced open source edge cloud solution available.
We expect the StarlingX project will accelerate the industry toward a common open source edge platform that spans a wide variety of use cases. We invite you to join this exciting, groundbreaking work.

Akraino Edge Stack
As a longstanding contributor to open source projects, Wind River has a proven track record of contributing code that addresses important problems applicable to critical infrastructure applications. Wind River will continue to contribute to many open source projects from the Linux Foundation, OSF, and others. In addition to being a major contributor to StarlingX, Wind River is also involved with the Akraino Edge Stack open source project from the Linux foundation. A blueprint based on StarlingX, proposed by Wind River and Intel, was accepted by the Akraino community to be part of the first release of Akraino Edge Stack.
Wind River is committed to working with the open source community to build the critical infrastructure for the edge.
WIND RIVER TITANIUM CLOUD: BASED ON THE STARLINGX PROJECT
Titanium Cloud is the industry's only fully integrated, ultrareliable, and deployment-ready virtualization platform that enables service providers to deploy virtualized services faster, at lower cost, and with guaranteed uptime.
When service uptime is critical for profitability, Titanium Cloud products ensure that virtualized services run when, where, and how they need to by providing:
- Flexibility to scale your services up, down, in, and out—rapidly and efficiently, deploying new services dynamically, when and where they are needed
- Streamlined installation, commissioning, and maintenance to minimize lifetime network operational costs
- Ultra-low latency a critical enabler for new edge applications and services
- Carrier grade reliability that you need to keep your services up—always
- Lifecycle management and long term support to keep your products up to date and secure for the lifetime of the service
