Deutsche Telekom-backed MobiledgeX has released version 3.0 of its edge cloud management platform. The latest update seeks to keep operators in the driver’s seat for all cloud engagements via common interfaces that make it easy to manage application workloads across any environment while maintaining control over data, privacy and security. The company reports close work on multi-cloud management strategies with select operators that have already announced high-profile public cloud rollouts.
Sunay Tripathi, MobiledgeX Chief Technology Officer and EVP of Engineering and Product, said: “The public clouds are making large investments in technology development and deployments so it is important for mobile network operators to take advantage of these efforts. Our software that overlays in-network edges and public clouds helps operators make important decisions around how those deployments are managed today and will provide critical future flexibility and optionality. It is no coincidence that some of the mobile operators signing public cloud partnerships are also some of the first to be working with us to help manage them. MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud 3.0 gives mobile operators full control over how they roll out cloud and edge with an open, cloud-agnostic architecture that offers data visibility and sovereignty that is not available in pure public cloud engagements.”
The debut of MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud 3.0 comes as mobile operators expand public cloud adoption, private network build outs and global edge initiatives like GSMA Telecom Edge Cloud (TEC) in support of 5G and edge computing pursuits. It follows increasingly urgent customer discussions focused on how to get the most out of public cloud now while maintaining the flexibility needed to remain agile and independent in ongoing cloud consumption. The platform can be installed within multi-cloud environments, including private edge networks, an increasing range of open and vendor infrastructures, or even bare metal for added efficiency. Regardless of deployment strategy, this latest release gives operators access to the same robust control plane with a comprehensive set of operational management tools and automation capabilities to manage cloud instances across all edge sites at scale. This additional control layer unlocks differentiating and defining edge management benefits that pave the way to cost efficiencies, revenue opportunities, enhanced security and control not available via public cloud alone.
