The OPNFV Project has announced the availability of OPNFV Danube, the project’s fourth platform release, representing an evolutionary turning point for OPNFV.
OPNFV Daube introduces new architectural components and improvements for NFV, including support for Management and Orchestration (MANO).
“Danube brings together full next-gen networking stacks in an open, collaborative environment,” said Heather Kirksey, director of OPNFV.
“By harnessing work with upstream communities into an open, iterative testing and deployment domain, we’re delivering the capabilities that truly enable NFV, and that is very powerful.”
Danube brings DevOps methodologies to NFV via collaborative upstream development, integration, deployment, and significant Continuous Integration/Continuous Development (CI/CD) testing automation.
The new release also includes continued incremental improvements in baseline features, new advances in network control capabilities, and a growing focus on performance-related topics—especially NFV data plane performance, and instrumentation around MANO functions. With these updates, OPNFV empowers next-generation networking for NFV.
