Whitestack is partnering with Universities and Research Institutions, to accelerate the adoption of the newest Cloud and Networking technologies, and to support the Education for a new world..

WHAT IS IT?

WARC is a program to connect Univiersities and Research Institutions with technological needs from the Market (private sector), in areas that will have a significant impact for the digital transformation of our economies, with the objective of accelerate the adoption of transformational technologies.

TARGET COLLABORATION AREAS

WARC targets collaboration on these areas 

Cloud Computing

Based on virtualization and containers, to achieve higher processing performance, at a lower cost.

SDN

Programable networks, that evolve from traditionakl IP or MPLS, as required for 5G networks

NFV

The evolution of the network, to new deployment models, that leverage Cloud and orchestration models.

5G

Evolution to 5G networks, by using open source software, open hardware, to address new network use cases.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The program is based on a collaborative agreement (the WARC agreement) that defines the commitment and responsibilities between Whitestack and the University, as described here:

FREE TECHNICAL WORKSHOPS

Whitestack will offer FREE access to technological (hands-on) workshops to university students and personeel, in order to increase the understanding of the new technologies part of the agreement.

RESEARCH WORK OPPORTUNITIES

Whitestack will offer paid research positions to the best students, in order to develop applied research, in the interest areas. We will favor long-term initiatives, aimed to support applied thesis works, or creation of new solutions.

FREE SOFTWARE AND SERVICES

Whitetstack will offer free software (and technical services to deploy) to be deployed in the laboratorios, to allow students to learn about the newest technologies.

Spread of Technological Innovations

It is expected that both parties will make public the work done as part of the agreement, by presenting in technical conferences, publishing in technical journals, and communicating to the industry in the social networks and local media.

INNOVATIVE HARDWARE AT COST

Whitestack will facilitate the purchase of the most innovative hardware, at cost, to create next generation laboratories. We will work together with the universities to present investment initiatives to the different reserach funds, when available.

SHARED LABORATORY

University and Whitestack will create a shared laboratory that will be used to demonstrate different innovations and solutions created as part of the program, to the industry. We would encourage collaboration between different WARCs.

FREE TECHNICAL TRAINING

For specific technologies, University will have free access tickets to some of our tecnnical training, in order to transfer experitse at deploying or operating our different solutions. These training programs are the same we offer to our customers.
