New York City-based GigaSpaces Technologies, the company behind the Cloudify pure-play open NFV orchestration platform,has partnered with Metaswitch Networks to bring cloud-ready open source virtual network functions (VNFs) to telecom carrier market segments. The solution runs on top of VMware’s VIO (VMware Integrated OpenStack) and vCloud Director (VCD).

According to Gigaspaces, the integration between the two companies’ technologies provides carriers with an alternative means to deliver an IMS and other NFV services based on Metaswitch Clearwater Core IMS and managed through Cloudify, an open source, TOSCA-based orchestration framework that follows the principles of the ETSI MANO specification and provides true multi-VIM support for OpenStack, VMware VIO and VCD infrastructure.

Our work together supports open source solutions for the telecom domain, which up until recently has been dominated by expensive and proprietary platforms from incumbent vendors.

Nati Shalom, CTO of GigaSpaces
Large network providers looking to automate the deployment and configuration of their VNFs and add support for ETSI and TOSCA can use this integration as a reference for how to incorporate Cloudify as an embeddable management and automation framework.
