Understanding OPNFV 85 Alarms View OpenStack Nova, Neutron or Cinder projects send failure notification event(s) to a software component such as OpenStack Aodh (which provides alarms and notifications) which then communicates to the MANO software. The MANO layer can then take an appropriate action, such as triggering a failover. During the OpenStack Barcelona summit, a vEPC demonstration showed that a failover in response to network failure was completed in less than 500ms, without interrupting an ongoing cell phone call. See the short video at youtu.be/Dvh8q5m9Ahk. In summary, OPNFV upstream contribution projects are staffed by experts that are well versed in the best practices in carrier grade deployments, and they use this knowledge to recreate those same service assurance, QoS, and availability guarantees in the NFV world. In the next chapter, we will look at the next pillar of OPNFV: Continuous Integration.
