Nokia Veers From Red Hat OpenStack With Latest CloudBand Update
Nokia updated its CloudBand software platform with an in-house developed open source OpenStack platform that better supports containerized deployments for edge computing. The vendor had previously worked with Red Hat’s OpenStack platform for CloudBand. Nokia’s CloudBand software platform is an ETSI NFV management and orchestration (MANO) system that can be deployed on any combination of NFV infrastructure (NFVi), virtualized infrastructure manager (VIM), generic VNF manager, and NFV orchestrator. It allows an operator to host, orchestrate, automate, and manage VNFs and services. From a macro level, the latest update provides a single NFVi/VIM to support and manage virtual machine (VM) and containerized workloads. This includes the integration of Kubernetes to support the migration of those workloads from VMs to containers. Dan McBride, software marketing director at Nokia, said the update was a response to operators moving toward digitization using a cloud platform; the deployment of 5G networks and supporting edge computing and cloud RAN architectures; and the increased use of containers to support those edge and cloud RAN deployments. Ronen Totem, CloudBand program manager at Nokia, said that last point was the basis for the inclusion of Kubernetes into the platform. “We are introducing Kubernetes as part of this, and it will help us to eventually move from VMs to containers,” Totem said. Zooming in on the switch away from Red Hat’s OpenStack platform, McBride said Nokia was looking for more agility and control. “The Red Hat distro made it difficult to find a footprint small enough to operate in those [edge cloud] environments, so we found we needed to veer off and develop our own,” McBride said, adding that the move also simplified the licensing process for Nokia and it’ customers.
