For those who are unfamiliar, Cloudify is a business unit of GigaSpaces, providing open source orchestration software for cloud applications and VNFs used by carriers and enterprises.
Its new tool wizard provides an easy to use, web-based interface for onboarding a VNF. The VNF Onboarding Wizard generates a template adhering to the TOSCA specification (Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications), abstracting away from the VNF provider the need to understand the inner workings of the emerging open standard used by telecoms for VNFs.
Based on the reality that, there is no industry standard for deploying a VNF onto a particular Virtual Infrastructure Manager (VIM), the VNF Onboarding Wizard provides a simple mechanism for VNF providers to generate a TOSCA compatible template.
