Understanding OPNFV 49 OPNFV Project Pillars ● Integration: OPNFV integrates a variety of open source projects to address specific NFV requirements. ● Testing: OPNFV tests the entire stack across a variety of NFV-specific parameters. ● New features: For each upstream open source project, OPNFV serves as the vehicle for NFV requirements. By actively working upstream and providing a single voice for NFV requirements, OPNFV steers these open source projects to serve the needs of NFV. The technical work of OPNFV is organized into projects. There are projects common across all three pillars, such as CI/CD, security and documentation, and there are those specific to a given pillar. At the time of writing of this book (April 2017), OPNFV has 51 member companies, 45+ projects, 340+ contributors, 16 test labs and 20,000+ commits (source: OPNFV community dashboard). To ensure adequate end user participation, OPNFV has 30+ members in its end user advisory group. OPNFV has completed three plugfests and organized two major worldwide summits to date. On average, OPNFV provides six-month major releases, each named after a river. Highlights from the most recent Danube release (number 4), include the introduction of stress tests, integration of the MANO stack, additional support for data plane acceleration technologies and significant improvements in the CI and test framework.
