Understanding OPNFV 11 start the NFV journey. Chapter 3, It's a bird, It's a Plane, It's OPNFV!, talks about the driving factors that were the impetus to create the OPNFV project, an overview of what OPNFV is, the concept of open source systems integration, the benefits of OPNFV, and finally, alternative approaches. Chapter 4, Upstream Projects in OPNFV, provides a comprehensive view of all the NFVI, VIM and MANO projects integrated in OPNFV. Chapter 5, OPNFV Upstream Contributions, briefly covers all the OPNFV "feature" projects that contribute requirements and code to the constituent upstream projects. We also take a deeper look at a successful project, OPNFV Doctor. Chapter 6, OPNFV Continuous Integration, covers the infrastructure projects in OPNFV and takes a detailed look at the CI pipeline that fully automates integration, builds, deployment, and testing. Chapter 7, OPNFV Automated Software Deployment, discusses the notion of scenarios, the four major installers that deploy these scenarios, and other deployment related projects. Chapter 8, OPNFV Continuous Testing, talks about the various testing projects in OPNFV, test dashboards, and plugfests. Chapter 9, Writing VNFs for OPNFV, provides a brief overview of VNF software architecture options and VNF onboarding, and ends with a concrete example of the Clearwater project onboarded by OPNFV for testing purposes. Chapter 10, Utilize OPNFV to Drive Business, covers the all-important topic of "what's in it for me" (WIIFM) – in other words, how does OPNFV help end users, technology providers, and individuals? The chapter continues by providing specific ways you can get involved with OPNFV. Chapter 11, Additional Resources, lists useful links for all 10 chapters.
