Now on its 3rd release, OpenBaton enables you to use just a couple of modules: NFVO and a messaging bus module – or the entire set of components, such as the fault management system, autoscaling engine, generic VNF manager (VNFM) or a Juju VNFM. It also includes support for multiple VIMs, with OpenStack being the primary one; Docker support has been demonstrated as well. OpenBaton supports network slicing, which will become important with 5G, and has a VNF marketplace. OPNFV has integrated OpenBaton into the platform under the Orchestra project.
