MobiledgeX, a platform provider enabling telcos to build edge clouds, is plugging into Anthos, Google Cloud’s application modernisation platform in a sign of malleability in the edge ecosystem.
The move, the company noted, will ‘give telco operators the freedom to choose how they want to control their multi-vendor telco edge cloud infrastructure and manage applications with enhanced data sovereignty and application security.’
Anthos, as regular readers of sister publication CloudTech will have read, aims to deliver a consistent hybrid experience and performance for applications. It allows apps to be built and run in multiple cloud environments, with comptability for Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced this time last year.
This means that, for MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud on Anthos, operator infrastructure staff will have the same UI experience if they are already familiar with using VMware or OpenStack in their infrastructure.
Other promises featured include policy-based application deployment, including auto-scaling and auto-provisioning, as well as ‘robust application and infrastructure monitoring, notification, and metrics’ through a single management pane.
“Anthos enables customers to deploy services and applications across multiple environments, including in the cloud, on-premises, and to the network edge,” said Tanuj Raja, global head of strategic partnerships at Google Cloud in a statement. “We’re excited to work with MobiledgeX to help operators deploy cloud-native applications to the network edge, efficiently and securely.”
The two companies have previously worked together, with MobiledgeX named as a horizontal solution provider for Anthos for Telecom in December. As this publication reported earlier this month, MobiledgeX is also a founder member of the Open Grid Alliance.
Telcos interested in participating in the beta program are advised to contact Ulf Andersson, MobiledgeX SVP global business development and sales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
