Airship 2.0 Includes Enhanced Document Management Capabilities

0

Airship, an interoperable set of open source software tools used to declaratively automate cloud provisioning, now hits version 2.0 featuring enhanced document management capabilities.

Airship 2.0 delivers an improved upgrade process using cloud-native tools and the ability for operators to use the same workflow to manage their workloads on both bare-metal and public clouds. These enhancements enable faster deployments, a smaller control plane, the ability for Airship to deploy native Kubernetes resources, and better security.

Airship 2.0 integrates open source projects into a platform that transforms declarative YAMLs into ready-to-go open infrastructure, taking care of things like bare metal provisioning, security and network policy, and day 2 lifecycle management.

All-new control plane in Airship 2.0 is built on Kubernetes, with cluster API multi-cloud provisioning and other cloud-native tools; Helm 3 and the Flux Helm Controller are integrated, offering better security posture.

Airship 2.0’s declarative model ensures predictability, repeatability and resiliency across sites and across upgrades, which is why AT&T is running Airship in production at scale.

AT&T’s 5G network runs on its 100% containerized, private network OpenStack cloud, deployed and managed by Airship. Using Airship, AT&T has been able to replicate its 5G infrastructure rapidly across dozens of regions. Furthermore, this architecture supports AT&T’s “evolved packet core” network and VNF teaming, enabling resilient mobile sessions.

Other companies with production use cases of Airship include Ericsson and SK Telecom.
