Tacker - OpenStack NFV Orchestration

Tacker is an official OpenStack project building a Generic VNF Manager (VNFM) and an NFV Orchestrator (NFVO) to deploy and operate Network Services and Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) on an NFV infrastructure platform like OpenStack. It is based on ETSI MANO Architectural Framework and provides a functional stack to Orchestrate Network Services end-to-end using VNFs.

High-Level Architecture

NFV Catalog

  1. VNF Descriptors
  2. Network Services Descriptors
  3. VNF Forwarding Graph Descriptors

VNFM

  1. Basic life-cycle of VNF (create/update/delete)
  2. Enhanced platform-aware (EPA) placement of high-performance NFV workloads
  3. Health monitoring of deployed VNFs
  4. Auto Healing / Auto Scaling VNFs based on Policy
  5. Facilitate initial configuration of VNF

NFVO

  1. Templatized end-to-end Network Service deployment using decomposed VNFs
  2. VNF placement policy – ensure efficient placement of VNFs
  3. VNFs connected using an SFC - described in a VNF Forwarding Graph Descriptor
  4. VIM Resource Checks and Resource Allocation
  5. Ability to orchestrate VNFs across Multiple VIMs and Multiple Sites (POPs)

Use Cases

vCE

Tacker API can be used by SP's OSS / BSS or an NFV Orchestrator to deploy VNFs in SP's network to deliver agile network services for remote Customer networks

vCPE

Tacker API can be used by SP's OSS / BSS or an NFV Orchestrator to manage OpenStack enabled remote CPE devices to deploy VNFs to provide locally network services at the customer site.

vPE

Tacker API can be used by SP's OSS / BSS or an NFV Orchestrator to deploy VNFs within SP's network to virtualize existing network services into a Virtual Function.

ETSI NFV SPECS

TOSCA for NFV

Tacker uses TOSCA for VNF meta-data definition. Within TOSCA Tacker used NFV profile schema.

Tacker + SFC (Service Function Chaining)

The proposal to enable SFC for Tacker is captured in these slides,
