StarlingX 7.0: Latest update offers new features and improvements

StarlingX is an open-source edge computing and IoT cloud platform primarily designed to provide high bandwidth and low latency connections on distributed devices. The recently released StarlingX version 7.0 features increased scalability, integrated security and greater flexibility.

Several commercial businesses, such as Verizon, Vodafone, Elisa, KDDI and NTT DoCoMo, currently use the platform to provide high performance and low latency for their devices. The creators of StarlingX platform developed the platform for a wide range of applications, from IoT and 5G to Open RAN deployments and edge computing.

“It is very exciting to see StarlingX deliver on the high demands of edge use cases in production,” said Ildikó Váncsa, senior manager of community and ecosystem, for the Open Infrastructure Foundation. “The StarlingX community is working diligently to expand the capabilities of the platform with each release, and StarlingX 7.0 is a prime example.”

StarlingX 7.0 increased the number of sub-clouds that the distributed cloud architecture can handle to 1000 All-in-One Simplex (AOI-SX) sub-clouds for enhanced scalability. The platform’s security has improved with the introduction of new audit logging capabilities. In addition, Pod Security Policies were replaced with a more efficient and reliable solution called the Pod Security Admission Controller.

The operating system on StarlingX 7.0 has been updated from CentOS to Debian Stable release. Customers can also upgrade components via the distributed cloud architecture using the Horizon web interface.

StarlingX’s contributors, one of which is Wind River, may continue working on current projects and objectives like Open RAN. Another contributor, 99Cloud Incorporation, will work with customers and partners to promote the new StarlingX 7.0 release to more users and developers.

In the previous StarlingX release, the company focused on upgrading the IoT cloud platform to Linux kernel version 5.10. Other new features included security enhancements and deployment and re-configuration improvements.
