HPA capabilities, discovered through the Multi-VIM layer, will continue to be persisted in the AAI database.
The information persisted will be extended to include to include hardware vendor platform information.
The format of persisted information is expected to follow the format defined on the HPA Requirement & Capability Specification page.
The format of persisted information is expected to evolve as we move into design activities.
