VMware Integrated OpenStack 5 Aims to Accelerate Carrier Clouds

VMware announced its VMware Integrated OpenStack 5 on May 21, providing an updated cloud platform for both data center and carrier deployments.

The updated carrier edition provides what VMware is calling OpenStack “in a box” for 5G and edge computing, enabling small-footprint cloud deployments at the edge of a wireless network. In addition, the new release benefits from accelerated data plane performance that helps to improve network performance and reduce latency. VMware Integrated OpenStack 5 is also compliant with the OpenStack Foundation’s 2018.02 interoperability guidelines, enabling interoperability across different OpenStack clouds.
