Building a Cloud Native NFV Marketplace

In this news Orange describes one of their immediate product roadmap requirements for NFV adoption and service enablement:

Ultimately the providers are looking to cultivate a liquidity of product innovation, such as AT&T announcing that they are looking for a marketplace of Cloud Native ready VNF suppliers. Hence why standards initiatives like VNF On Boarding are essential, they are stipulating the first building blocks required for such a marketplace, enabling:

Containers as a Service

Stephane Litkowski of Orange also describes “servers license stacking,” which is similarly driving up the cost of operations.

“We need to minimize the number of servers,” said Litkowski. “That means looking at how many services can we put on a single server as well as using containers, more optimized code for VNFs and even open source controllers.”

A key opportunity for this area of requirements is to leverage the existing, mature practices from the Cloud industry most notably ‘SaaS Enablement’, the process of transforming legacy on-premise software to hosted SaaS. This encompasses the required software architecture re-engineering and also the remodeling of licencing.

It also further highlights the role containers will also likely play in enabling the scenario, and associated vendor innovations.

For example in this VentureBeat article Peter Yared, CTO of Sapho, explores a scenario he describes as ‘Containers as a Service’.

In short this offers a “hybrid SaaS” capability that delivers subscription-based software via a SaaS-like model, but it is deployed on-premise to the client via containers. With containers hosting SDN services as well as these apps, then the network market could be attacked via the same disruptive principle and enabling technical architecture.

Conclusion: Telcos will be able to leverage extensive innovation from the Cloud pioneers, and trends like these offer to do much of the ‘heavy lifting’ of this type of service transformation and delivery.
