Specialized Pharos Lab Established for OPNFV Community Interoperability Testing on Energy-Efficient ARM-Based Servers
STOCKHOLM — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 10, 2015 — Regulatory News:
Enea® (STO: ENEA) today announced the world’s first Pharos Lab for OPNFV networking developers to validate applications on workload-optimized ARM®-based servers.
The Pharos project is an OPNFV initiative towards a geographically and technically diverse lab infrastructure, hosted by the OPNFV community members and the Linux Foundation. The ARM architecture is expected to play a foundational role in next-generation networks based on flexible, scalable and highly-integrated Systems-on-Chip (SoCs). The Pharos Labs provide the community with a head start on early ARM-based server development work and lay the groundwork for OPNFV Brahmaputra and future related software releases.
“Supporting ARM-based hardware and the OPNFV project is central in our strategic direction as a company”, said Daniel Forsgren, Senior Vice President Product Management, Enea. “Opening up the world’s first ARM Pharos lab offers tremendous value to the ecosystem as it now has a compliant environment for OPNFV testing and validation on ARM-based equipment.”
“By pioneering the world’s first ARM-based OPNFV Pharos community lab initiative, Enea has opened up a more diverse ecosystem for equipment providers, operators and ISVs tasked with creating next-generation networks,” said Bob Monkman, marketing manager, enterprise segment, ARM. “Together, Enea and the ARM ecosystem will deliver choice and a uniquely compelling value proposition for energy-efficient and workload–optimized infrastructure in the NFV space.”
"We are thrilled that Enea is joining the Pharos lab community and increasing the variety of architectures available for testing in our federated testing environment," said Heather Kirksey, Director, OPNFV. "The goal of the OPNFV Pharos testbed project requires a collection of diverse labs and a broad range of hardware, which helps ensure OPNFV’s applicability across architectures, environments and vendors. Inclusion of ARM-based servers in these testing environments helps further this goal and benefits the larger ecosystem."
The Enea Pharos lab is hosted at Enea’s headquarters in Kista, Sweden, and is operational from mid-November.
