Tacker is OpenStack project building an Open NFV Orchestrator with in-built general purpose VNF Manager to deploy and operate Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) on an NFV Platform. It is based on ETSI MANO Architectural Framework and provides full functional stack to Orchestrate VNFs end-to-end.
This project is spin-out project from Neutron.
It is a quite common requirement to run services in virtual machines aka ServiceVM. So far each OpenStack service(Especially Neutron case) implemented their own life cycle management of ServiceVMs/services and hardware. Preparing/pooling/scheduling VMs/services and so on. It resulted in duplicated work and rises the bar for appliance provide to integrate appliances with OpenStack.
This project introduces a new service for managing servicevm/device. Its responsibility is to:
As ETSI NFV is an important use case, NFV conformance is in the scope of this project. This project services as some components of NFV MANO architecture. http://www.ietf.org/proceedings/89/slides/slides-89-opsawg-7.pdf
