Sep 16, 2019

  • attendees: Bill, Lionel Pelamourgues 
  • some discussion about use cases for this blueprint - Bill to introduce Lionel to Glenn Seiller for further discussion 

Sep 11, 2019

  • attendees: Bill, Ada Cabrales (Intel), Hayde Martinez Landa (Intel)
  • discussion around next steps for Ada & Hayde to get the 2nd lab up & running (on Intel's premises)
  • the following actions were identified, with some progress notes since then...
    • Ada/Hayde send their server information – we’ll review & assess how similar it is to where we’re running our Distributed Cloud
      • Memory: 64GB
      • CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1275 v6 @ 3.80GHz (8 cores)
      • Disks: 2x447GB
      • Network Cards: Intel X550T, Intel I210
    • Bill send Jenkins information/instructions
    • Bill find out how soon (roughly) we think we’ll be able to send the Distributed Cloud installation recipe
      • current plan is that this information should be available at some time during the week of Sep 23rd 
    • Bill to send the recurring meeting info to Ada/Hayde

Jul 22, 2019

  • attendees: Bill, Dariush, Neil Oliver
  • abbreviated meeting today, will work via email and ad-hoc discussions on Rel 2 planning and blueprint family expansion 
  • Neil Oliver from Intel joined today - Neill is part of the OpenNess group in the Network & Custom Logic group at Intel 
  • OpenNESS is Open Network Edge Services Software
    • was NEV SDK
    • inspired by ETSI MEC platform
    • support LTE, WiFi, Landline I/F
    • added the data plane – e.g. traffic steering at the edge node to the right application (e.g. a Container or a VM)
    • also a controller component
  • Open NESS controller can use underlying components (like an OpenStack controller)
  • they're in their initial release open source s/w
  • many customers that have experience with the NEV SDK, which has been out for 2-3 years
    • there’s a Wind River Linux (Titanium Server) and a CentOS version
  • Neill's looking at synergy with StarlingX control components – maybe the Open NESS controller could act as a plug-in that StarlingX could use
  • OpenNESS is in a couple of other blueprints as well - one is the Tencent connected vehicle blueprint – traffic steering to a vehicle or an edge device
  • we'll continue talking to Neill about the possibilities for defining a blueprint that includes StarlingX and OpenNESS

Jul 8, 2019
