Open Baton Libs

This project openbaton-libs contains modules that are shared among different projects inside the Open Baton framework.

The openbaton-libs are shared folders. In order to achieve that we took advantage of git subtrees. We belive that in this way it will be easier for users since they don't have to take care of procedures for retrieving any sub-folder. If you are reading that, it means that you are a developer so it is important that you are aware of a couple of things.

The projects containing openbaton-libs are almost all, but not all use everything available from openbaton-libs.

  • NFVO: contains openbaton-libs and uses almost all
  • Generic VNFM: contains openbaton-libs and uses only vnfm-sdks
  • All the plugins contains the plugin-sdk, that in turn contains openbaton-libs.
  • OpenBaton Client: contains openbaton-libs, basically because of the catalogue.

How to extend Open Baton LIBS

Well, any modification to this project needs to be reflected in all other projects, so it is extremely important that doesn't brake the status of the depending projects.

What is Open Baton?

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

Open Baton provides multiple mechanisms for interoperating with different VNFM vendor solutions. It has a modular architecture which can be easily extended for supporting additional use cases.

It integrates with OpenStack as standard de-facto VIM implementation, and provides a driver mechanism for supporting additional VIM types. It supports Network Service management either using the provided Generic VNFM and Juju VNFM, or integrating additional specific VNFMs. It provides several mechanisms (REST or PUB/SUB) for interoperating with external VNFMs.

It can be combined with additional components (Monitoring, Fault Management, Autoscaling, and Network Slicing Engine) for building a unique MANO comprehensive solution.
