Compass Based OPNFV Installer Project Proposal
Project proposal meta-data
Proposed name for project: Compass4nfv
Proposed name for the repository: compass4nfv
Project Category: Integration and testing
Compass4nfv is an installer project based on open source project Compass, which provides automated deployment and management of OpenStack and other distributed systems. It can be considered as what the LiveCD to a single box for a pool of servers – bootstrapping the server pool. Compass project follows the OpenStack community's four opens: Open Source, Open Community, Open Development, and Open Design.
In this project, we will leverage Compass core features and its extensible architect to support the installation of OPNFV release. It will support deployment of OPNFV full stack, with different flavors of configuration, on both bare-metal servers and virtual machines.
Some of the unique values that Compass will bring to the OPNFV community includes the following:
It provides programmability to the operators who take care of infrastructure bootstrapping process. This allows easy integration with operators's OSS
and other ecosystem tools.
It provides extensibility through meta-data. Metadata allows specification of a target system configuration in a user-friendly format without changing the source code of Compass. For example, users can be use metadata to support a different flavor of OpenStack configuration, which differs slightly from the default OPNFV release by Compass4nfv.
Plugins support also allows users to extend the system. This includes the support of a different underly configuration management tools. For example, currently Compass support Chef, and Ansible. In Compass4nfv project, Ansible will be used by default. But a 3rd-party developer could provide a plugin to support puppet-base or Chef-based underlying package management. The web UI and API
layers from Compass do not change.
The scope of the proposal includes the following:
A framework to deploy into OPNFV CI environment for bare-metal, and virtual resources
Working closely with OPNFV's testing projects to improve integration of upstream components, e.g functest, yardstick
Supporting Widely collaboration with integration of all open source SDN controllers, e.g ONOS, ODL etc
Making all code changes as upstream as possible into respective projects
Provisioning specified Distros on baremetal nodes(or simulator VMs).
Ansible-based installation and configuration of OpenStack Kilo/Liberty.
Ansible-based installation and configuration of OpenDayLight Lithium/ ONOS drake.
Integration of OpenStack and ODL but not limited to ODL as SDN controller.
Configuration of Open vSwitch to be managed by OpenDayLight.
