About Whitestack

Whitestack was born with the mission of helping organizations to adopt the broad spectrum of technologies created around Cloud.

  • The cloud not only represents a technological revolution, but is also a game changer that is allowing organizations to completely change their cost model.

  • The cloud requires a new kind of networking, software-based, which avoids manual configuration, by adopting a more programmatic approach.

  • Managing hundreds or thousands of virtual machines is complex, and impossible to be execute manually. Orchestration gives organization a clear (high-level, business) view, abstracting the details. Our solutions orchestrate IT and Telco infrastructures.

Whitestack is all about these pillars: Cloud, SDN and NFV orchestration.

Whitestack’s three pillars

Whitestack’s three pillars

Mission

Deliver unprecedented value to the IT & Telecom Industry through the use of open, efficient and innovative technologies, geared towards large-scale deployments, and leveraging contributions from the open source community.

Vision

To achieve agile, efficient and accessible telecommunication services, regardless of the users’ geographical location or social condition.

Help technology adopters change their mindset, encouraging them to innovate in the benefit of their users.

Values

We strongly believe in a new technological framework that is proving to change cost structure, increase efficiencies and accelerate business:

  • Software Defined Infrastructure: Computing/Networking infrastructure entirely under the control of software with no operator or human intervention. It operates independent of any hardware-specific dependencies and is programmatically extensible.

  • Network Disaggregation: Efficient networking devices, running third party Network OS. It is Networking through the adoption of a more commoditized technological model, similar to the acceleration in personal & business computing in the 90’s.

  • Elasticity & Programmability: System is able to adapt to workload changes by provisioning and de-provisioning resources in an autonomic manner (programmatically), such that at each point in time the available resources match the current demand as closely as possible.

  • Hyper-scalability: Distributed infrastructure that can quickly accommodate an increased demand for services without requiring additional physical space, cooling or electrical power.

  • No vendor lock-in: Avoid dependency on a specific vendor (by being unable to use another vendor without substantial switching costs), through the use of open (commoditized) technologies, available from a number of vendors. The goal is to allow organizations to pick a certain vendor because their technical, commercial or value makes them stand out… rather than being stuck with a single vendor due to expensive exit-barriers.
