Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) based on OpenStack as the VIM (virtual infrastructure manager) is a growing use case among leading Telcos around the globe. Orange Labs have been leading the "OPNFV - base system functionality testing" project that provides a comprehensive testing methodology, test suites and test cases to test and verify OPNFV Platform functionality that covers the VIM and NFVI components. This project uses a "top-down" approach based on ETSI NFV use-cases and open source VNFs for the functional testing.
This session will dive into the functional testing of a vIMS system based on Metaswitch's Clearwater, coupled with the open source tools Cloudify and Jenkins, for the full lifecycle orchestration and management including the monitoring, healing, scaling and software upgrade of such a complex system.
How to achieve real deployments that are fully automated, managed and orchestrated through their entire lifecycle - including scaling and healing with OPNFV, OpenStack, and Cloudify using the open source vIMS Clearwater as the test VNF.
