Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Liaison with ETSI NFV ISG
Date Tue, 12 Nov 2013 06:21:54 GMT
OK, here's the draft of the Liaison request (template borrowed from


ETSI Industry Study Group (ISG) on Network Functions Virtualization
Prodip Sen, Chairman NFV ISG
Andrew Malis, NFV Liaison Officer <>

I am a member of the Apache CloudStack Project Management Committee (PMC)
and have been asked to serve as liaison from the Apache CloudStack
community to the ETSI Industry Standard Group on Network Functions

Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage
large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.  The platform
has pioneered the use of VNF to provide network services to IAAS tenants.
We are excited to see that NFV is going to realize its potential and look
forward to collaborating to realize this promise expeditiously.

The community would like to suggest these areas of collaboration:

1)  ETSI NFV ISG Documents: It would be very helpful to receive pointers
to the various documents being produced by the ETSI NFV ISG, even before
their formal publication, so that your needs can be incorporated into the
Apache CloudStack development effort.

2)  Sharing ideas and experience: We have many shared goals and a large
community of experienced cloud implementors. We have several opportunities
where someone from ETSI NFV ISG could present to the Apache CloudStack
community, including meetups and online fora , and our CloudStack
Collaboration Summit. We would also be quite pleased to present on Apache
CloudStack to ETSI NFV ISG in any forum you find appropriate. If
appropriate we can participate in working groups such as the MANO WG.

3)  Open Source:  We would love to get members of the  ETSI NFV ISG
participate in our community, especially in design ideas, code
contributions and the like. We hope that we can assist in producing
reference implementations and help iterate faster on crucial issues such
as interoperability.

Of course we welcome other ideas for collaboration with the NFV ISG.
