In the NFV space, early adopters have struggled with onboarding new Virualized Network Functions and Network Functions due to the diversity of those products, the orchestrators and VIMs they are being deployed on. While the world drags standards to completion, there are still real world and practical challenges that need to be addressed.
The VNF Onboarding open sourced project has sprung to life to create community driven tools to automate and simplify authoring blueprints for various orchestrators and VIMs, especially different versions of Openstack across different Hypervisors. This session will walk us through those tools, the design and strategy behind them and call to action any community members who would like to contribute to furthering the code base.
Understand the struggles and complexities in onboarding VNFs
Introduction and technical deep dive in to the VNF Onboarding Open Source Project and the roadmap
Practical examples and hands on presentations of the tools and capabilities
Call to action on how you can participate in hackathons, contribute to the design or the codebase
