OSM is organizing two webinars to explain in detail what is in its new release (OSM Release SEVEN) and giving live demos of some of the most relevant features.
With the increasing adoption of 5G, more Network Services are being implemented based on a microservices architecture. While traditional virtual network functions (VNFs) remain an important building block, container network functions (CNFs) are increasingly gaining popularity.
Also, with wider adoption of NFV and SDN technologies and the evolution towards Edge computing, the number of locations offering ability to deploy workloads will experience a significant growth and introduce the need to optimize how individual VNFs / CNFs of NSDs are placed across available infrastructure.
OSM Release SEVEN brings support for cloud native deployment on Kubernetes using different existing mechanisms, and a placement feature supporting the computation of optimal placement of VNFs/CNFs over VIMs, by matching NS specific requirements (such as VLD latency constraints) to infrastructure availability and metrics.
This session, the 2nd part of the OSM Release SEVEN webinars, provides a deep dive of these features through the following slots:
- Deploying on Kubernetes with OSM and helm charts
Overview and demo of the deployment of cloud-native applications based on existing helm charts using OSM.
- Deploying on Kubernetes with OSM and Juju bundles
Overview and demo of CNF deployment on Kubernetes with OSM using k8s charms. By using charms for VNF and CNF deployment purposes telcos can benefit from a common approach to day-1/day-2 primitives’ implementation.
- Automatic placement of Network Services
Demo of how the new placement feature enables placement optimization in OSM, combining a mix of VNF pinning to VIMs, finding the most cost optimal distribution of the NS taking into account both compute and transport costs.
