Cross-project collaboration is something OpenStack community has embraced for a long time. Common libraries like Oslo reduces the time and effort to build a new service. Another way this manifests is in new OpenStack services getting built using existing services to solve an higher level use-case.
In this talk we are present how the band of projects comprising of Mistral, Tacker, Neutron, Heat, TOSCA-parser and Barbican came together to build an industry leading ETSI NFV Orchestrator that leveraged the best of these projects. Each of these projects brought in critical functionalities needed towards the final product. You will learn how, when strung together, this solution follows the classic Microservices design pattern that the industry is rapidly adopting.
