I have been engaged in the OPNFV community ever since its establishment since 2014. Over the time, I have been working in multiple projects. I am the PTL for the HA project, and am also engaged in dovetail, yardstick, functest and etc.. I have been dedicated in this community, helping OPNFV reaching its initial goals as a carrier grade NFV platform that meets the End-user’s need.
|Tapio Tallgren||Nokia||I started as the TSC Chair in Fall 2016. Since then, OPNFV has gotten both wider and deeper: wider since it now includes a storage project and an ONAP integration project. Deeper since the testing projects have increased their coverage, the C&C program is starting a beta test, and OPNFV is testing OpenStack on a continuous basis. These are of course just examples of the great work that the community has done.|
Going forward, the biggest tasks ahead of OPNFV that the TSC has to work on include the conclusion of the C&C technical work, improving the usability of the OPNFV installers, and working together especially the
ONAP community. We need to make OPNFV easy to use for newcomers and experienced users. This requires for example improving the pod and scenario description documents, better documentation, and perhaps enabling virtual deployments. Personally, I have started working in the XCI project and it is great fun to see a little OPNFV cluster running in virtual machines on a single server. This is an experience I would like more people to share.
A long time community member and contributor to OPNFV, my first contributions were in VSPERF, later I became PTL of the SDNVPN networking project and more recently as Ericsson’s TSC representative. Aside from project contribution I am active in community health and development initiatives such as scenario lifecycle and consolidation, and as a member of the C&C Committee including Dovetail/CVP work. I am now ready to fully invest my time and effort in working with the TSC to drive the OPNFV community forward.
I believe OPNFV is at a critical point at this moment. We have created a unique baseline for defining open source based NFV, in terms of community, technology and processes. Now is the point in time where we have to start managing our deliverables more actively and start forming consensus around key APIs, behaviors and characteristics, in order to fully live up to the ambitions the project originally set out to. We have to turn our attention from the “how” to the “what”.
If elected to the TSC chair I would focus on facilitating the following topics:
(electing 5 members)
|Dave Neary||Red Hat||Dave has been an active TSC member since the beginning of OPNFV and has always provided the community with technical and open source guidance. Dave is also a committer of the dovetail project and member of the C&C committee.|
|Hongbo Tian||Huawei||Hongbo has been the long time PTL of dovetail dedicating a lot of hard work to help bring Dovetail to near its first launch. He’s also a big contributor to and an organizer of each of the Plugfests. The board can benefit from more voices from the trenches.|
