Project: High Availability for OPNFV (Availability)

This project is focused on the high availability requirements of the OPNFV platform, with regards to the Carrier Grade NFV scenarios. In this project, we address HA requirements and solutions in 3 different perspectives; the hardware HA, the virtual infrastructure HA and the service HA, to be specific. Requirement and API definition of high availability of OPNFV will be output from this project.
