Adds support for HP BladeSystem servers
Wind River said that it has integrated support for HP BladeSystem carrier-grade and enterprise server blades into its Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) operating system, tools and build system.
Wind River said that it is committed to the adoption of Linux carrier-grade open platforms for the telecom server segment, allowing equipment providers and operators to achieve cost and time-to-market savings by utilizing a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) approach with volume-based servers and out-of-the-box support for Carrier Grade Linux.
The company claims that the Wind River CGL with HP BladeSystem carrier-grade server blades provides network equipment providers and service providers the performance, cost-effectiveness and energy efficiency of enterprise platforms with the reliability of ETSI/NEBS Level 3 certified carrier-grade platforms.
In addition, Intel Xeon processor family has been integrated with Wind River CGL and HP BladeSystem server blades, allowing customers to leverage investment, applications and tools across all networking devices, the company said.
Paul Anderson, vice president of marketing and strategy of Linux products at Wind River, said: “Typically, a telecom server is simply a server being used as a telecom networking element, often in the core or edge of the network. An operating system specifically designed for carrier-grade deployments would help to maximise the reliability and performance of the entire telecom environment.
“Bringing Wind River Linux 3.0 to HP BladeSystem server blades gives customers the variety and flexibility they need to build best-in-class products while achieving reliability, cost and performance advantages.”
