Remembrance of the late Al Morton¶
The Orinoco Anuket Release is dedicated in remembrance of the late Al Morton who was instrumental for the establishment of the OPNFV project and in the formation of Anuket from the merger of CNTT and OPNFV. As a co-chair of the TSC and PTL on the ViNePERF project, he contributed so much to the success of the project. Al was a tireless believer in Open Source and standards, who spent his entire career at Bell Labs and AT&T Laboratories as a researcher and engineer extraordinaire. He will be missed.
Mission and intro¶
The mission of the Anuket project is to empower the global communications community by creating and developing reference cloud infrastructure models, architectures, tools, and programs to deliver network services faster, more reliably, and securely.
Anuket approaches its mission by providing a set of cloud infrastructure reference specifications, reference implementations, conformance tests, testing tools, testing frameworks and implementation projects.
Participation is open to anyone, whether you are an employee of a member company or just passionate about network transformation.
Documentation for Anuket users¶
These documents are targeted to the users of the different Anuket sub-projects and here they are organized by sub-project categories.
Anuket Specifications provide reference specifications for cloud infrastructures and their workloads. The specifications are organized to the following documents:
Reference Model (RM) - a technology independent specification of cloud infrastructures for telecom workloads
Reference Architecture (RA1) for OpenStack based cloud infrastructure - a specification of an OpenStack cloud infrastructure based on the requirements of the Reference Model
Reference Conformance (RC1) for RA1 based Implementations - an automatic conformance testing framework to test RA1 conformance of OpenStack cloud infrastrucutres and their workloads
Reference Implementation based on RA1 specifications (RI1) - a blueprint to build an OpenStack cloud based on the requirements of the RA1 specifications
Reference Architecture (RA2) for Kubernetes based cloud infrastructure - a specification of a Kubernetes container orchestration platform based on the requirements of the Reference Model
Reference Conformance (RC2) for RA2 based Implementations - an automatic conformance testing framework to test RA2 conformance of OpenStack cloud infrastrucutres and their workloads
Reference Implementation based on RA2 specifications (RI2) - a blueprint to build a Kubernetes container orchestration platform based on the RA2 specificcations.
Implementation projects address specific needs in the cloud technology relevant for the community and provide a reuseable implementation. The implementation projects have their release notes, installation and user guides in the aggregated documentation set referred here:
Testing projects and frameworks¶
Testing projects, like ViNePERF provide testing tools to assess certain characteristics of cloud infrastructures while the Functest testing framework provides an automatic test suite to test the cloud infrastructures. The testing projects and frameworks have their release notes, installation and user guides in the aggregated documentation set referred here:
The integration projects integrate OpenStack and Kubernetes based cloud infrastructures based on the blueprints of RI1 and RI2. The integration projects have their release notes, installation and user guides in the aggregated documentation set referred here:
