HP Partners with Wind River to deliver carrier grade solutions for NFV


Today’s CSP is in a tough situation – fulfill the growing demands on the network, while decreasing Capex/Opex. The industry has known for a while now that NFV can improve this situation – decrease costs, increase revenue possibilities, manage true-time network demand, and create an innovation-rich environment with low failure costs.  But what about 5-9s?  Today, HP and Wind River announced a partnership that will create carrier grade solutions with HP Helion OpenStack technology to pave the path to NFV, 5-9s intact. 

Key benefits of the HP Helion OpenStack-Wind River integrated solutions will include:

  • Reliability – Carrier grade Linux® and kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) hypervisor, advanced self-healing, and high availability add-ons for OpenStack Control Plane to enable service availability levels that carriers and CSPs demand
  • Performance – Carrier grade accelerated vSwitch for high performance networking, advanced NFV workload placement to maximize the number of subscribers supported per server, utilization of system topology to optimize Virtual Network Function (VNF) performance, and an availability and affinity model designed to ensure VNF service availability while providing max performance with the lowest latency
  • Manageability – Scheduling and orchestration of workloads, security features to meet carrier needs, and open, standards based applications programming interfaces (APIs)
