Whitestack is pleased to announce a new minor release for WhiteNFV Castelldefels, our commercial distribution of Open Source MANO 7.0.1, released in early february by ETSI.

Castelldefels2 brings special focus on adopting Helm Charts (the package manager for Kubernetes) as the primary mechanism for deploying CNFs (Containerized Network Functions) in existing Kubernetes clusters. This is particularly significant as many vendors are developing their 5G solutions to be deployed as Helm Charts.

In addition, this update contains an improved deployment process, important fixes and enhancements focused on providing a high level of stability and better usability for orchestrating CNFs over Kubernetes clusters.

The new release can be applied to existing production environments without any impact, thanks to the rolling upgrade feature, which simplifies maintaining the most recent release.
