back to article Why does the world need the new 'Arkraino' network edge stack'?

Over the next couple of quarters, a team of developers will start fleshing out the roadmap of a Linux Foundation effort A&T ignited in February, when the telco giant donated code to the Akraino project. The aim is to create a “network edge stack” that plugs a gap in the open source world, between the OpenStack/OPNFV-built …

    Which one is it?

    "Arkraino", "Akraino" or Arkanoid...which one is it?

    Rapacity at the network edge

    Sounds like the deeply wonderful telcos tryng to grab a slice of a cloudy pie they don't yet have a finger in.

    just dont make it...

    just PLEASE do no make it:

    a) another systemd

    b) another 'gnome 3' or unity (referring to the effect on the X11 desktop)

    c) another 'dot not' (i.e. bloatware, "change for the sake of change" ware)

    d) another SOAP

    e) another Silverlight

      That’s what api’s are for.
