Gluon is a Model-Driven, Extensible Framework for NFV Networking Service. This framework enables Telecom Service Providers to provide its customers with NFV networking services on-demand. Gluon uses model-driven approach to generate APIs (including objects, database schema, and RESTful API endpoints) from a YAML file which models the NFV Networking Service. When a Telecom Service Provider needs to launch a new service, it only needs to model the new service in a YAML file. Gluon framework generates the APIs accordingly. And then applications can use those APIs to provide the new service. Thus Gluon helps Telecom Service Provide accelerate the time-to-market and achieve business agility through its extensibility and scalability in generating API for new use cases and services.

Project Overview

Blue Prints

  1. Gluon Neutron ML2 Plugin
  2. Gluon Nova Plugin

Proof-of-Concept (PoC) Tracking

The scope of a Gluon PoC includes:

  • Interaction model with Neutron and Nova via Neutron Plugin for Gluon
  • New Protons, i.e. new service APIs, via new YAML

Progress of PoC is tracked by JIRA Ticket (Epic) in OPNFV:

  1. Task (Ian): Push code from Github to OpenStack Gluon repo (Completed)
  2. Story (Tom): Gluon Neutron ML2 Plugin (Completed)
    1. Task (Tom): Initial proposal describing ML2 approach (Completed)
    2. Task (Tom): Push Interim Gluon Neutron ML2 Plugin Code for Gerrit Review (Completed)
  3. Story (Niko): Database Migration from SQLLite to MySQL
    1. Task (Niko): Implementation Proposal of MySQL for Database Migration (Completed)
  4. Story (Jin Li): PoC Testing
    1. Task (Jin Li): Initial testing proposal (Completed)
  5. Story (Georg): Design document for port and service binding model in Gluon
  6. Task (Ian): Devstack installer integration
