A Case Study of Cross Community Collaboration

Projects in OpenStack are operated under the principle of 4 opens which are centered on open community. Open Community means the open collaboration not only within OpenStack but also with other communities. This presentation gives a case study of how to foster open collaboration within and cross communities. It first introduces the steps, actions and practices Airship has taken to promote open collaboration and advocate active engagement of stakeholders within OpenStack. It further describes the actions and practices Airship has initiated to expand its footprint into NFVi and Edge domain, and how Airship collaborates with OPNFV community to implement telco NFVi with Airship technology in downstream. The result benefits both community as well as stakeholders’ business across various business domains. Finally, the best practices and lessons learned are concluded.
