End-to-End Model Driven VNF Lifecycle Management/Modeling 

  • Description: As part of the VNF SDK project, VNF modeling subproject has been focusing on establishing a consistent end-to-end approach for VNF and VNF package modeling in R2. We have identified several starting point for standardization of these models. What we need to do next is to agree on what models and/or standards are going to be applicable at what stages of the VNF lifecycle.

    We will start with the VNF model, as it is seen by VNF developers, inclusive of compute/storage/network hardware requirements, telemetry and policy specification, and identified how this information is ingested and trasformed into other models as part as part of VNF on-boarding (SDC), instantiation (SO/VF-C/Optimization/Policy) and operation (APPC/VFC/Optimization/Policy).

    We will also need to understand how policies and telemetry apply across the VNF management lifecycle, at what point they are defined, who gets to define them and how they are blended/federated with policies already provided during VNF on-boarding.


Enhancing ONAP to orchestrate container VNFs using container orchestration as VIMs 

  • Description: Release 1 ONAP instantiates VNFs as VMs in compute farm using VIMs such as Openstack which manages VM. Increasing VNF density on each node, need for multiple networks/slices, Services using SFC and reduced bringup & network latency requirements in market such as 5G and vCPE  are driving container based VNFs.  This project proposal is to enhance ONAP to support VNFs as containers in addition to VNFs as VMs by container orchestration as VIM instead of VM manager like openstack.
    • Objective/Outcome desired:
      • Get consensus on crawl/walk/run direction.
      • Get agreement on K8S as container VIM in R2
      • Get feedback on proposed architecture and changes to various ONAP projects.
      • Get an understanding that VNFs as container is needed for ONAP R-2 use cases(5G-RAN and vCPE)

Minutes on Multi-Cloud follow up and R2 scope discussion (09/28/2017): Multi-Cloud follow up and R2 discussion.pdf

Subtopic 1:   Multi-Cloud Architectural Vision Introduction 

Description:   This session will focus on discussion of the evolution of the Multi-Cloud framework for R2 and beyond, to address some of the platform gaps and move towards a more extensible and consistent cloud mediation layer. We would like to introduce a few key focus areas for this evolution, both in term of the use cases, architectural design principles, and integrations.

Architectural focus: Model Driven API for cloud infrastructure, Standardized cloud telemetry management, and policy driven cloud agnostic deployment.

Deep-dive subtopics (2, 3 and 4) towards achieving this vision are listed below for convenience

  • Performance & Isolation - "Towards a performance-aware and portable cloud-agnostic Infrastructure"
  • SDN - "Architectural options for Multi-vendor SDN Controller and Multi Cloud Deployments in a DC"
  • FCAPS Telemetry - "Standardized Infrastructure class statistics Model" 

Suggested Audience:      ONAP-OF, OOM, SDN-C, SO, VF-C, APP-C, DMaaP

Estimated Duration:        1.5 hrs

Subtopic Lead:                 VMware

Presenters:                       AT&T, VMware, Wind River, Intel

Slides:                               ONAP-mc-intro.pdf


Subtopic 2: Performance & Isolation - "Towards a performance-aware and portable cloud-agnostic Infrastructure" 

Description:                    Multi-vendor cloud portability and interoperability while delivering performance is a mandatory feature of distributed DC deployments. The practical challenge in achieving this goal is the lack of standardization of Platform-aware and QoS features, for example extra specs in OpenStack, which results in a vertically integrated solution. This session will focus on how Multi Cloud can offer policy standardization and translation as a microservice for platform-aware and QoS features (hard-guarantee, min-guarantee, best effort etc.) for addressing this challenge and how NFV application classes such as IMS/EPC Control/Data Plane can benefit from this framework.

Suggested Audience:     VNF Requirements/Modelling, A&AI, Policy, SO, VF-C, APP-C, SDC

Estimated Duration:       .5 hrs.

Subtopic Lead:                Bin Yang, Wind River, bin.yang@windriver.com 

Presenters:                      Wind River, Intel

Slides:                              ONAP-mc-performance-isolation.pdf

Subtopic 3:  SDN - "Architectural options for Multi-vendor SDN Controller and Multi Cloud Deployments in a DC" 

Description:                    Multi-vendor components in a DC including underlay, overlay, gateway and SDN Controllers for the same pose various architectural challenges in terms interoperability, security etc. This session will focus on an in depth analysis of the architectural options including related efforts such as OpenStack Gluon. This proposal also addresses communication latency-bound multi-side physical DCs which can be treated as a single virtual DC for management purposes.

Suggested Audience:    SDN-C, SO, VF-C, APP-C, SDC, OOM

Estimated Duration:       .5 hrs.

Subtopic Lead:               AT&T

Presenters:                     AT&T, Intel, Huawei, VMware

Slides:                             ONAP-mc-sdn.pdf

Subtopic 4:   FCAPS Telemetry - "Standardized Infrastructure Class statistics Model" 

Description:                   This session will focus on a hierarchical cloud-platform-aware architectural framework with separation of collection, storage, processing functions and real-time vs historical analytics components. In this framework, Multi Cloud will deliver a standardized infrastructure class statistics model for driving ONAP component/VNF placement/change management across distributed DC multi cloud instances through ONAP-OF, DCAE and other components. The benefit to ONAP platform, across all use cases, will be delivering the best performance and security while minimizing cost.

Suggested Audience:      ONAP-OF, DCAE, A&AI, Policy, OOM, SDN-C, DMaaP

Estimated Duration:        .5 hrs.

Subtopic Lead:                 AT&T

Presenters:                       VMware, Wind River, AT&T, Intel

Kubernetes vs Dockers Swarm supporting ONAP-OOM on multi-cloud multi-stack environment 

Description:  ONAP was set originally to support multiple container platform and cloud through TOSCA. In R1 ONAP and OOM is dependent completely on Kubernetes. As there are other container platforms such as Docker Swarm that are gaining more wider adoption as a simple alternative to Kubernetes. In addition operator may need the flexibility to choose their own container platform and be open for future platform. We need to weight the alternatives and avoid using package managers as Helm that makes K8s mandatory.

The use of TOSCA in conjunction with Kubernetes provides that "happy medium" where on one hand we can leverage Kubernetes to a full extent while at the same time be open to other alternative. In this workshop, we will compare Kubernetes with Docker Swarm and walk through an example of how ONAP can be set to support both platforms using TOSCA.

            

Suggested Audience:    SDN-C, SO, VF-C, APP-C, SDC, OOM

Estimated Duration:       1 hrs.

Desired Scheduling:      Before Architecture and TSC meetings.
