Report cover

The kernel is the fundamental core of a computer operating system. It is the first program to load, and it manages all core functions of the computer. With the expanding role of the Linux kernel in systems today, Canonical is often asked to provide leadership and support for kernel offerings for many purposes.

Recently, Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) has taken root in the production environments of telecoms operators. The individual components of NFV, known as Virtualised Networks Functions (VNFs), are critically tied to a general purpose operating system, as opposed to being integrated into application-specific devices. This union makes performance and support of core operating system components, like the kernel, the foundational metrics of success.

There are flexibility and economic benefits of using general purpose software for function-specific applications, but as VNFs are mission critical services in a telco infrastructure, certain key, determining factors should be kept in mind when selecting an operating system to host them.

This special report will demonstrate that Ubuntu 16.04 LTS offers the necessary, proven reliability, while also offering supported kernel choices that enhance the efficiency of VNF operations and functions.
