[joehuang] The major challenge for VDF use case is cross OpenStack networking for tenants. The tenant's VM/Volume may be allocated in different data centers geographically, but virtual network (L2/L3/FW/VPN/LB) should be built for each tenant automatically and isolated between tenants. Keystone federation can help authorization automation, but the cross OpenStack network automation challenge is still there. Using prosperity orchestration layer can solve the automation issue, but VDF don't like prosperity API in the north-bound, because no ecosystem is available. And other issues, for example, how to distribute image, also cannot be solved by Keystone federation.
What is "prosperity orchestration layer" and "prosperity API"?
[joehuang] This is the ETSI requirement and use cases specification for NFV. ETSI is the home of the Industry Specification Group for NFV. In Figure 14 (virtualization of EPC) of this document, you can see that the operator's cloud including many data centers to provide connection service to end user by inter-connected VNFs. The requirements listed in (https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/TelcoWorkingGroup) is mainly about the requirements from specific VNF(like IMS, SBC, MME, HSS, S/P GW etc) to run over cloud, eg. migrate the traditional telco. APP from prosperity hardware to cloud. Not all NFV requirements have been covered yet. Forgive me there are so many telco terms here.
What is "prosperity hardware"? Thanks, -jay _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
