Dell partners with AT&T to boost Data Centers

Airship has recently announced a partnership with Dell and AT&T. Reports allege, the primary aim of the collaboration is to strengthen existing telcos’ virtual network functions (VNF) and allow it to co-exist on a platform in the same space of network with containerized network functions (CNF). This will in return create old architecture with new means of management and deployment.

Hence, enterprise customers may also have the right to use their voice in issues regarding the location of the edge. Reports suggest, trials of edge computing deployments are already taking place. The core tasks can hence be performed and run on primary applications, for which an enterprise was previously dependent on its own data center.

In the next year, such trials will take place into the proof-of-concept phase. This transition will hence also require to re-deploy the current edge applications. This may be expedited to a great extent with means of the upcoming version of Airship platform 2.0. It includes new components which help in standardizing and automating the deployment IT workloads into Kubernetes.

“Today the current use case for AT&T is the Network Cloud, which is a near-edge play that supports the 5G packet core,” commented Ryan Van Wyk, AT&T’s associate VP for Network Cloud.

As a result, he commented one of the goals was to support smaller footprints. One can thus deploy small compute footprints and also have a control plane beneath in order to orchestrate the compute.
