Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) Release 3; Management and Orchestration; VNF Descriptor and Packaging Specification
VNF Packaging - Spec
Scope and Field
This revision of NFV-IFA 011 continues the development of the specification as part of the NFV Release 3.
This edition will add functional requirements and specification of the information model to support the Release 3 features, and it will extend the scope of the former Release 2 edition summarized hereafter:
This Work Item will develop a specification for packaging VNFs(Virtual Network Functions) to be delivered to service providers. This work item will build from the requirements captured in the SWA and MAN Group Specification documents related to the VNF state machine, VNF design patterns, and the VNF Descriptor information elements, among others.
The new work item will consider a holistic end-to-end view of the package lifecycle from design to runtime, thus capturing development as well as operational views.
Analysis for this WI will use and potentially refine End to end VNF Package lifecycle management operations based on use cases, detailing actors and NFV Architectural Framework functional blocks impacted. This new work item will also use other industry developments related to software procurement as input into the analysis.
Deliverables for this work item will be an informative GS document addressing:
- Requirements for the structure and format of the VNF archive, list of mandatory and optional files and authorized formats
-Extensible language independent meta-model for describing the VNF properties and resource requirements buiding on existing work on VNFD. This will require using consistent terminology and refinement of the existing VNF model
-Recommendation for Implementation ready packaging structure by selecting and reusing (e.g., profiling or identifying requirements for extension of) existing cloud services (e.g. TOSCA) and network configuration specifications (e.g. DMTF, MEF).
This work item will benefit from the SDO gap analysis and it will be used as input to open source activities related to packaging tools, runtime package interpretors and execution environments.
The output of this work should be used as formal requirements for extensions into normative specifications developed by other SDOs identified in the analysis.
This revision of NFV-IFA 011 will address the Release 3 candidate features listed in Annex B of the Release 3 Definition (v0.10.0). Where needed, it will continue the previous version to enhance and complete the specified Release 3 features.
This revision will reflect the maintenance performed to NFV Release 2 documentation and of already specified Release 3 features.
