VIM Driver for Docker

This Vim Driver is able together with the Docker VNFM to deploy NS on top of a Docker engine.

Both VNFM and VIM Driver are necessary in order to be able to deploy NS over Docker

How to install the Docker VIM Driver


Build the Docker VIM Driver

Assuming that your GOPATH variable is set to $HOME/go (find out typing go env), run the following commands:

mkdir -p ~/go/src/
cd ~/go/src/
git clone
cd go-docker-driver
dep ensure
cd main
go build -o docker-driver

Afterwards check the usage by running:

./docker-driver --help

How to start the Docker VIM Driver

If you don't need special configuration, start the docker-driver just by running:


How to use the Docker VIM Driver

In order to upload a VimInstance using the docker driver, you need to upload a Vim Instance as follows:

  "name": "vim-instance",
  "authUrl": "unix:///var/run/docker.sock",
  "tenant": "1.32",
  "username": "admin",
  "password": "openbaton",
  "type": "docker",
  "location": {
    "name": "Berlin",
    "latitude": "52.525876",
    "longitude": "13.314400"
  • authUrl either you pass the unix socket, in this case will use the socket running locally to the vim driver or the host connection string for remote execution
  • tenant in the tenant you can specify the api version used by the chosen docker engine
  • type is docker

after uploading this Vim Instance, you should be able to see all images and networks in the PoP page of the NFVO dashbaord

What is Open Baton?

OpenBaton is an open source project providing a comprehensive implementation of the ETSI Management and Orchestration (MANO) specification.

Open Baton is a ETSI NFV MANO compliant framework. Open Baton was part of the OpenSDNCore ( project started almost three years ago by Fraunhofer FOKUS with the objective of providing a compliant implementation of the ETSI NFV specification.

Open Baton is easily extensible. It integrates with OpenStack, and provides a plugin mechanism for supporting additional VIM types. It supports Network Service management either using a generic VNFM or interoperating with VNF-specific VNFM. It uses different mechanisms (REST or PUB/SUB) for interoperating with the VNFMs. It integrates with additional components for the runtime management of a Network Service. For instance, it provides autoscaling and fault management based on monitoring information coming from the the monitoring system available at the NFVI level.
