about open baton
OpenBaton is a ETSI NFV compliant Network Function
Virtualization Orchestrator (NFVO).
Open Baton is a ETSI NFV MANO compliant framework. Open Baton was part of the OpenSDNCore
(www.opensdncore.org) project started almost three years ago by Fraunhofer FOKUS with the objective of
providing a compliant implementation of the ETSI NFV specification.
Open Baton is easily extensible. It integrates with OpenStack, and provides a plugin mechanism for
supporting additional VIM types. It supports Network Service management either using a generic VNFM or
interoperating with VNF-specific VNFM. It uses different mechanisms (REST or PUB/SUB) for interoperating
with the VNFMs. It integrates with additional components for the runtime management of a Network Service.
For instance, it provides autoscaling and fault management based on monitoring information coming from the
the monitoring system available at the NFVI level.
