CI/CD and DevOps are common practices for webscale software enabling rapid development of applications and the business.

ETSI NFV defined a multi layer MANO framework to manage the different layers of telecom services. OpenStack, as the defacto standard VIM, is a key enabler of DevOps in the NFV architecture, because of its capability to dynamically manage workloads.
