Open Source MANO Supports Public and Hybrid Cloud Deployments


The ETSI Open Source MANO (OSM) group today launched the second version of its open source code that includes new software-defined networking (SDN) capabilities and an Amazon Web Services (AWS) plugin to support public and hybrid cloud deployments.

OSM, which aims to deliver an open network functions virtualization (NFV) management and orchestration (MANO) stack that can be implemented across different technologies, announced Release One in October 2016. 

Release Two includes SDN assistance to interconnect traffic-intensive virtual network functions (VNFs) with on-demand underlay networks. Additionally, OSM’s plugin model for major SDN controllers has been extended with the Open Network Operating System (ONOS), which joins open source SDN controllers OpenDaylight (ODL) and FloodLight in the list of supported controllers.
