Deploying OpenStack in OPNFV's Brahmaputra Release

The OPNFV collaborative development project has now delivered it’s second release, Brahmaputra.

While the project continuous to grow, uncertainty remains around what it is that the OPNFV community actually does. This session will outline and discuss the objectives and activities of the OPNFV community, the key values this provides to the industry and importantly activities the community avoids.

In the context of the activity and challenges faced during Brahmaputra, as the community worked to integrate 38 parallel projects for the release, we will outline the intentions activities and outcomes of this work, hard lessons learnt, achievements and future plans.


The Telecom/NFV track is brought to you by OpenStack and OPNFV.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn about the fundamentals of OPNFV and in the context of the Brahmaputra release, the challenges, experiences and eventual successes of the community working with multiple OpenStack distributions in parallel.
