Ubuntu助力英国电信集团开启下一代5G云核心

Ubuntu is available in Cloud Server Linux. Contact us to find out our latest offers! 7月24日,Canonical宣布BT(英国电信集团)将使用Ubuntu上的Charmed OpenStack作为其下一代5G核心云的一个关键组件。Canonical(Ubuntu背后的公司)将提供开源虚拟化基础设施管理器作为BT网络功能虚拟化(NFV)方案的一部分,并逐步迁移到基于云的核心网络。 这种基于云开源的方法将确保BT能够快速部署新服务,增加容量且充分满足由5G和光纤到户产生的客户需求。Canonical的OpenStack架构也将使BT完整的5G核心网络交付变得简单。 OpenStack云软件将实现网络硬件和软件的分离,将核心网络组件转变为软件应用程序,这意味着可以通过持续集成和开发更快地更新迭代。这种分离允许不同网络应用可以跨数据中心共享同一个硬件,使得有附加容量需求时网络更具弹性和扩展性。与更换核心网络设备相比,软件更新的速度将为开发5G服务开辟新的工作方式,BT可以在几周内建立新服务并在几天内部署。 BT首席架构师Neil J. McRae说道:“Canonical正在为我们提供“原生云”(cloud-native)基础,使我们能够创建一个智能且完全融合的网络。利用开源和最佳技术将确保我们能够实现融合愿景,并为我们的客户提供世界领先的5G和FTTP体验。”  Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth说道:“BT已经认识到开放式架构所提供的效率,灵活性和创新,同时,意识到这个方式对于5G服务交付的价值。我们很高兴与他们合作,为使用开放架构奠定基础,从而为BT 5G战略打下坚实的基础。” BT的EE移动网络已在2019年5月30日在六个城市开启了5G服务。在伦敦,伯明翰,加的夫,曼彻斯特,爱丁堡和贝尔法斯特的客户和企业是英国第一批体验5G优势的用户。 英国电信还概述了其5G路线图,该路线图将从2022年开始推出基于云的完整5G核心网。 高带宽和低延迟,再加上扩展和不断增长的5G覆盖范围,将提供响应更快的网络,实现真正身临其境的移动增强现实,实时健康监控和移动云游戏。完整的5G 核心网也是BT融合网络技术的重要一步,将光纤、移动网络和WiFi融为一体,实现无缝的客户体验。 借助基于云的架构,未来的发展将是超可靠低延迟通信 (URLLC)、超高速分布式网络可以更加灵活地推出。5G的这一阶段将对实现如自动驾驶车队的实时交通管理,拥有上百万台设备监测全国空气质量的大型传感器网络,以及远程实时交互的“感知互联网” 起到关键作用。 The post Ubuntu助力英国电信集团开启下一代5G云核心 appeared first on Ubuntu Blog.

在边缘端部署Kubernetes第一部分——模块搭建

Ubuntu is available in Cloud Server Linux. Contact us to find out our latest offers! 为帮助解决电信,多媒体,运输,物流,农业和其他细分市场的独特挑战,边缘计算继续备受关注,迎来了大增长。如果你刚接触以上几个边缘计算体系结构,下图是新兴架构体系的简单抽象。 在此图中,你可以看到边缘云位于现场设备旁边。事实上,有一个极端边缘计算的概念,它将计算资源放在现场设备上——即最左边的圆圈。连接你办公室,家电和 所有传感器网关设备就是一个极端边缘计算的例子。 到底什么是边缘计算呢? 边缘计算是云计算的一种变体,你的基础设施服务(计算,存储和网络)在物理上更靠近生成数据的现场设备。从而为你提供更低延迟和更低网络流量的双重优势。低延迟可提高现场设备的性能,使其不仅能够更快地响应,还能响应更多事件。降低网络流量有助于降低成本并提高整体吞吐量——你的核心数据中心可以支持更多现场设备。应用程序或服务是否位于边缘云或核心数据中心将取决于用例。 如何才能创建边缘云呢? 边缘云服务应该有至少两层,两层都将最大限度地提高操作效率和开发人员的工作效率,且每层都以不同的方式构建。 第一层是基础设施即服务(IaaS),除此还提供计算和存储资源,IaaS层应该满足超低延迟和高带宽的性能需求。 第二层是Kubernetes层,提供一个让你运行应用和服务的通用平台。当然,是否用Kubernetes是可选的,但今天它已经被证明是一个让企业和组织充分利用边缘计算能力的平台。你可以在现场设备、边缘云、核心数据中心和公有云上部署你的Kubernetes。这种多云部署功能为你提供了在选择的任何地方部署工作负载的完全灵活性。Kubernetes为你的开发人员提供了简化其devop实践的能力,并最大限度地缩短了与异构操作环境集成所花费的时间。 接下来的问题是,怎么部署这些层?在Canonical,我们通过使用定义明确的专用技术来实现这一目标。让我们先开始Kubernetes所需要的IaaS层。 物理基础设施生命周期管理 第一步是考虑物理基础设施,什么技术可以更有效地管理基础设施,将原始的硬件转换到你的IaaS层。在这方面,Metal-as-a-Service (MAAS),裸机即为服务已经被证明了其具有的高效性。MAAS提供可用于硬件发现的底层系统,使你可以灵活地分配计算资源并动态重新利用它们。这些底层系统通过开放API将裸机服务器暴露给更高级别的业务流程,就像你使用OpenStack和公共云一样。 随着最新版MAAS发布,你可以基于KVM pod自动创建边缘云,从而有效地使操作者能够创建具有预定义资源集(内存,处理器,存储和超额预订比)的虚拟机。你可以通过命令行和浏览器界面以及MAAS API来完成上面操作。你也可以是用Canonical的高级编排解决方案Juju来构建自己的自动化框架。 正如我们在柏林的OpenStack峰会期间所展示的那样。MAAS还可以被优化过的方式部署以便在机架交换机上运行。 边缘应用的编排 一旦边缘云的物理基础架构的发现和配置完成,第二步就是选择一个业务流程工具,以便在边缘基础架构上轻松安装Kubernetes或其他软件。你可以通过Juju简单安装一个完全兼容上游Kubernetes的Charmed Kubernetes。使用Kubernetes时,你可以安装容器化工作负载,为其提供最高性能。 在电信领域,容器网络功能(CNFs)等工作负载非常适合这种架构。 Charmed Kubernetes还有其他的优点。能够在虚拟化环境中运行或直接在裸机上运行,全自动Charmed Kubernetes部署内置高可用性设计,允许就地,零停机升级。这些都是经过验证的,真正具有弹性的边缘基础架构和解决方案。Charmed Kubernetes的另一个好处是能够自动检测和配置GPGPU资源,以加速AI模型论证和容器化转码工作负载。 下一步 当选择好了合适的技术,现在是时候部署环境和开始验证程序。下一部分的博客文章将包含实际操作的例子。 The post 在边缘端部署Kubernetes第一部分——模块搭建 appeared first on Ubuntu Blog.

Ubuntu Core 18专题研讨会图文版

Ubuntu is available in Cloud Server Linux. Contact us to find out our latest offers! Ubuntu在公有云、混合云、容器、AI机器学习、IoT边缘计算领域有着广泛的使用和庞大的生态圈。今天我们着重介绍Ubuntu Core在物联网的应用,Ubuntu Core正在驱动着整个物联网设备。Ubuntu Core在无人机、边缘网关、机器人、工业等行业领域都非常流行,是这些行业领域的首选OS(操作系统)。 从事IoT(物联网)业务的企业正面临产品软件安全更新维护和成本效应乃至营收的难题。随着时间的迁移,成本支出将变得更高。传统解决方案如今会使得产品生命期过半后将面临盈利困难的问题,影响企业新产品的研发和迭代升级。因此,一个能在产品整个生命周期中为企业持续盈利的平台对于企业来说至关重要。 单一的产品+软件服务的传统商业模式在现今市场上已缺乏竞争力,固定的硬件成本+无盈利的软件平台+高昂的安全维护成本使得其在发展上受限。平台的经济性已被证明是另一个出路,在同业内也具备更大的竞争优势。软件平台的持续性增长将会给企业带来更多营收,使得产品线升级、迭代的过程更加平滑。 软件安全问题正呈现全球性,大范围爆发的趋势,企业需要做好足够的安全准备,尤其在产品量产和正式上线阶段。量产前需要做好后期安全维护更新的机制,上线时需要有可行,稳定,高效的安全方案。物联网的特点是分散,并发,集中管理,如距离很远用于风力发电的电机网关,维护成本巨大和不便。 为企业生产力而设计 Ubuntu Core是一个为企业生产力而设计的Ubuntu版本,拥有和Ubuntu一样的内核。拥有上千的应用的软件商店,更可靠、安全、稳定,对企业营收更友好。 重新定义商业模式 Snap store,自由定制化,灵活的软件生态,营收链。企业可选择品牌定制应用商店,接入应用商店或定制,拥有可控的灵活安全更新维护机制,解决维护难、成本高的难题。 安全和成本效益兼备 Ubuntu Core 18拥有主动安全机制,事务性的系统到软件层的更新,默认应用都受限,Canonical10年的可靠安全支持。这些都将安全提升到了新高度,同时降低维护成本。 强大的开发者社区,现在开发者在Ubuntu平台上开发嵌入式的Linux应用将变得更简单,一个平台即可涵盖设备到云端的连接。同时,在多版本多架构的软件测试、分发上体验更友好。 了解更多关于Ubuntu Core 18的内容或联系我们。 The post Ubuntu Core 18专题研讨会图文版 appeared first on Ubuntu Blog.

正しいLinux OSの選択によりIoT製品化までの時間を短縮

Ubuntu is available in Cloud Server Linux. Contact us to find out our latest offers! IoT産業の数十億ドル規模の将来性を見込んで、関連するハードウェア、ソフトウェア、およびソリューションが急増するなか、各ベンダーは開発から市場投入までの時間を早めようと苦悩しています。製品の市場への投入段階、あるいは最悪の場合投入後の問題を回避するためには、開発段階で最初から適切なインフラを選ぶなど、正しい選択をすることがより一層重要になります。 市場投入までの時間を短縮する一つの方法は、最初から正しいオペレーティングシステム(OS)を選択することです。これにより、製品を保守可能、かつ拡張可能、そしてなによりセキュアにします。Eclipseの『IoT Developer Survey 2018』(IoT開発者調査2018)によると、LinuxベースのOSが現在もIoTエコシステムで最もよく使われており、RaspbianとUbuntu/Ubuntu Coreがトップシェアを占めています。 商用IoTゲートウェイメーカーのRigadoは、自社のハードウェアの製造においてこのOS選択の問題に直面しました。当初はオープンソースのLinux OSであるYoctoを採用しましたがすぐに、これでは顧客がOS、セキュリティ、その他の更新の保守に莫大な時間を費やさなければならないことが判明しました。これは多くのRigadoの顧客にとって重要な事業目的の妨げとなるものでした。 そこでRigadoは、Ubuntu Core、Snap、およびCanonicalのプライベートブランドストアに切り替えることで、顧客の悩みを取り除くことにしました。Ubuntu CoreとSnapに関して、Rigado CEOのBen Corrado氏は次のように述べています。「コンテナ化された技術を用いて知的財産を保護するソリューションがすでに用意されています。Rigadoは、Canonicalとの関係を通じて、セキュアでシームレスかつ管理された更新を提供できます。」 Rigadoは、顧客によるゲートウェイインフラ技術の選び方に変化をもたらすことで、製品の市場投入までの時間が短縮されることを理解しました。顧客はRigadoのCascadeプラットフォームを使用することで、3~6か月でコンセプトから本稼働まで移行し、開発時間および市場投入までの時間を最大で1年早めることができます。 固定機能のゲートウェイからパッケージベースの集中管理ソリューションへのシフトがRigadoのビジネスにもたらした提供は、顧客にとって非常に重要です。「文書化された体系的なプロセスであることで、私たちは一つの顧客を通じて得た経験をすべての顧客に展開することができ、その結果、顧客は迅速に現場へと展開することが可能となるのです」とCorrado氏は述べています。 RigadoがUbuntu CoreとSnapにより市場投入までの時間をどのように短縮したのか、以下のビデオでCorrado氏のインタビュー全文をご覧いただけます。 The post 正しいLinux OSの選択によりIoT製品化までの時間を短縮 appeared first on Ubuntu Blog. Ubuntu is available in Cloud Server Linux. Contact us Continue Reading
