Multi-cloud orchestration

ETSI Open Source MANO, aims to deliver an open network functions virtualization (NFV) management and orchestration (MANO) stack that can be implemented across different platforms. The platforms help in the migration of the traditional workloads to the virtualized and cloud-native environments.

OSM is the central part of these complex migrations and is now solving the hybrid infrastructure challenge in the deployments of network functions such as CNFs, VNFs, and PNFs in a single solution.
