Calipso provides visible insights using virtual topological representation and graphs, adds monitoring per object in the inventory to reduce error vectors and troubleshooting cycles for VIM operators and administrators.

Calipso interfaces to with the virtual infrastructure (starting with OpenStack) through API, DB and CLI adapters, discovers the specific distribution/plugin version and based on that collects detailed data regarding running objects in the underlying workers on the different hosts. Calipso analyzes the inventory for inter-relationships and keeps them in a common data model.  Calipso also represents the typologies in real-time (automatic updates per changes in VIM), monitors the related objects and analyzes some data for impact and root-cause analysis. This is done with the objective to lower and potentially eliminate complexity and lack of visibility from the VIM layer as well as to offer a common and coherent representation of all physical and virtual network components used under the VIM. Calipso is to work with different OpenStack flavors, plugins and installers.
