StarlingX/Draft new wiki home page
Welcome to the StarlingX Project
This is a work-in-progress draft of a new look for the StarlingX wiki home page. Comments and feedback welcome! Please send them to (bruce dot e dot jones at intel dot com).
StarlingX is a fully integrated Edge Cloud software stack that includes everything that you need to deploy an Edge Cloud on one server, two servers, or up to 100 servers. It includes a host operating system, storage and networking components, and all of the Cloud Infrastructure needed to run Edge workloads in one easy to install package. All of the software has been tuned and optimized to meet Edge application requirements.
The stack pre-defines several different configurations that are designed to meet a variety of Edge Cloud deployment needs.
The StarlingX project's goal is to make the task of deploying and managing a high performance Edge Cloud as simple as possible.

We have a number of community calls each week. All calls are open for anyone to join. We try to schedule them in a time slot that works for Asia, US/Canada and Europe, which means they are usually in the morning US time.
Here are the agendas and notes for our PTG meetings:
Planning & Process
Story and Bug Tracking
We are using the OpenStack Storyboard tool for tracking feature development activities. Each new Story should be marked with one or more Tags, and can optionally include one or more Prefixes in the title. See Tags and Prefixes for a description of how we use them.
The StarlingX Storyboard project group is here.
StarlingX is both a development project and an integration project that combines new services with many other open source projects into an overall Edge Cloud software stack. We've broken the overall project into a set of separate projects to help keep things manageable. Notes from the F2F discussion on how to organize sub-teams are here
