Google Cloud Previews Kubernetes Support for Windows Containers

Virtualization Review | February 03, 2020

The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is now previewing Kubernetes orchestration support for Windows Server containers. Specifically providing that support is the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) platform for containerized applications, Google said in a recent announcement.GKE version 1.16.4, now in beta, can run both Windows and Linux containers "side-by-side in the same cluster," the company said. Supporting Windows on GKE is a part of our commitment to provide a first-class experience for hosting and modernizing Windows Server-based applications on Google Cloud,"Google added. "To this end, in the past six months, we added capabilities such as the ability to bring their own Windows Server licenses (BYOL), virtual displays, and managed services for SQL Server and Active Directory."

Analytics is no longer about collecting and exploring data, but more about converting it into actionable insights. With artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) becoming increasingly easier to procure and deploy, more organizations are finding these technologies crucial for maintaining competitive advantage and driving business forward. According to Gartner, “Analysts predict that by 2020, AI technologies will be virtually pervasive in almost every new software product and service.”1 The power of AI, combined with data analysis, is allowing organizations to unlock new information that was not easily attained before and to move towards even more valuable prescriptive and predictive analytics.

Netomnia and STL to collaborate for testing of programmable FTTx

Netomnia | May 26, 2022

STL, one of the leading digital network integrators, said today that it would test its programmable fttx (pfttx) software solution with Netomnia for their live networks in the United Kingdom. STL, with over 25 years of optical connection expertise, is bringing software-defined networking to large-scale fibre to the home, cell sites, and commercial networks via pfttx. The company has announced the public release of pfttx, a software-defined, open, and disaggregated Passive Optical Network ("PON") solution designed to make fiber networks smarter and more flexible. Scalability, expanded and thorough telemetry reporting, open community alignment (ONF/BBF/ITU-T), onboarding of third party Quality of Experience (qoe) apps, offering a better customer experience (CX), shorter time-to-market, and lower total cost of ownership are all major advantages of pfttx. This cloud-native (Kubernetesmicroservices-based) software stack can operate on any Cloud-native Computing Foundation (CNCF)-based telco Edge Cloud platform. The system presently supports XGS-PON and GPON technologies and can be upgraded to 25G. STL's pfttx solution is also authorized and available on the vmware Marketplace. The UK is in the process of building out sophisticated full-fibre broadband, and new-age firms like Netomnia are leading the way. STL and Netomnia previously collaborated on Optical Fibre deployment and are currently working together to integrate programmability into large-scale fttx networks. Once completed, this study will pave the way for sophisticated software-defined architectures for fttx to be adopted in the UK. Jeremy Chelot, CEO, Netomnia, said that, "The promise of full-fibre broadband will be realised when service providers implement advanced architectures that software-ise the fibre networks. We are excited about the possibilities that STL's pfttx solution presents. This trial with STL will be significant as we will jointly demonstrate pfttx in a live scenario." Pfttx is a cloud-based access network solution that elevates the network service providers' business model. We are excited to collaborate with Netomnia for their Ultrafast full-fibre broadband program. Our solution is intended to help them achieve accelerated network rollout with faster deployment, provisioning and enhanced network performance." Chris Rice, CEO, Access Solutions, STL
