Solution Brief Dell Technologies Reference Architecture for Wind River ® Studio An open, containerized edge infrastructure for carrier-grade workloads that is ready to meet your needs at any scale Summary The Dell Technologies Reference Architecture for Wind River Studio provides a validated solution for deploying a containerized edge infrastructure that delivers low latency, scalability and high availability, delivered on a small footprint. It's based on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, Dell EMC PowerSwitch Networking and Wind River Studio software. Solution Highlights Dell Technologies Reference Architecture for Wind River Studio delivers cloud-native network architecture that features: • Simplified Day 1 and Day 2 operations through ZTP and single-pane-of-glass host-level management • Ultra-low latency with deterministic performance optimized per use case • High availability with zero downtime for applications • Scalability from one to many nodes from edge to core • A small footprint allowing for more resources to run critical workloads • Orchestration of fully automated upgrade deployments across geo- distributed cloud, with roll back and forward • Fully integrated security by design • A portfolio of telecom optimized servers and open networking solutions from an industry leader that is ready to meet your needs at any scale with options for carrier grade support From core to edge, build your distributed network with ease and confidence With the evolution to 5G, many communications service providers are moving away from integrated, purpose-built solutions to a disaggregated model for their distributed networks. It's a shift that brings new challenges — fear about the unknown, concerns over latency and the daunting task of managing hundreds of thousands of distributed nodes on a day-to-day basis. The good news, though, is that you're not in this alone. Proven solutions exist today that can help you deploy and manage a modern, cost-effective, disaggregated infrastructure with confidence and ease — and still get the carrier-grade performance you expect. More specifically, Dell Technologies and Wind River have joined forces, combining our respective hardware and software expertise, to support CSPs with a containerized edge infrastructure that delivers the low latency, redundancy and high availability that carrier-grade workloads require today — and lower operational costs. Performance and ease at the edge Together, we deliver a validated reference architecture ideal for the distributed provider network. Found within this reference architecture is the combination of two key attributes: unique hardware and software technology that meets and exceeds the performance and detailed requirements of hosting 5G and edge workloads, and a suite of high-automation tools to reduce Day 1 and Day 2 operational effort. The combination of 5G requirements paired with the automation of operational tools will enable CSPs worldwide to provide next- generation services and enable new revenue streams. These include hosting 5G vRAN infrastructure from the core to the edge, edge compute solutions for Industry 4.0, automated factory and warehousing, as well as autonomous vehicles, vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communications and drone management. Selection of the right next-generation virtualization infrastructure is a key enabler to hosting these edge compute applications.
