VMware vCloud® NFV™ combines a carrier grade NFV infrastructure with VMware vCloud Director for Service Providers as the NFV Virtualized Infrastructure Manager (VIM). vCloud NFV provides a platform to support Communication Service Providers (CSPs) in realizing the goal for network modernization and business transformation.
The vCloud NFV platform implements a modular design with abstractions that enable multi-vendor, multi-domain, and hybrid physical, and virtual execution environments. The IaaS layer that is exposed through this version of vCloud Director for Service Providers, provides a CI/CD environment for workload life cycle management. The platform also delivers an automation framework to interoperate with external functions for service orchestration and management.
