Mirantis partners with network software firms to push OpenStack for NFV

OpenStack specialist Mirantis has launched an initiative to help telecoms providers implement services based on software rather than costly network hardware, using a combination of the OpenStack management framework and virtual appliances provided by network software partners.

The move towards implementing telecoms functions in software running on standard servers rather than specialised hardware is known as network function virtualisation (NFV), and the OpenStack framework is seen as an attractive platform for achieving this owing to its flexibility and open source nature.

Mirantis, which likes to style itself as the "pure play" OpenStack company, is moving to address this opportunity by partnering initially with three firms that have key capabilities in NFV: Metaswitch Networks, Overture Networks and Citrix, which is contributing its widely used NetScaler load balancer and gateway appliance.

Mirantis said its role in the initiative is to provide a hardened configuration of Mirantis OpenStack that is compliant with the emerging ETSI-NFV reference architecture being developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute.

However, it is also offering a whitepaper and deployment guide for customers looking to implement NFV on OpenStack, as well as validating specific virtual network functions (VNF) from partners for deployment on Mirantis OpenStack.
