Wind River has introduced the Wind River Linux Carrier Grade (CG) Profile for the latest version of Wind River Linux. Formally registered for the CGL 5.0 specification with the Linux Foundation, the profile delivers Carrier Grade Linux functionalities on top of a Yocto Project Compatible product.
The Wind River Linux CG Profile gives customers a turnkey platform that allows them to meet their CGL requirements. Carrier Grade Linux registration requires several key requirements to be met, including compliance to standards, support for highly available hardware, serviceability, performance, high availability, clustering and security. Carrier-grade products typically require up to 5 nines or 6 nines (99.999 to 99.9999 percent) availability, translating to downtime as low as 30 seconds a year.
Wind River Linux delivers a commercial-grade Linux platform and easy out-of-the box user experience with a rich set of capabilities based on the latest open source technologies, fully integrated development tools, worldwide support and maintenance, and expert professional services. Developed from the Yocto Project open source development infrastructure, Wind River Linux achieved Yocto Project Compatible registration in 2012.
