As Marc Cohn explains, NFV orchestration is about much more than just provisioning and managing virtual features, such as firewalls or load balancers. NFV orchestration must address the entire service-chaining process. Given that need it is surprising there is such a lack of consistency in how vendors define "orchestration". What's more, there's a major disconnect between the formal notion of orchestration for NFV and what operators actually need to meet their virtualisation goals. It is a disconnect must be addressed if the NFV is to be successfully deployed in CSP network. To help, the Linux Foundation has announced OPEN-O, a global, industry-wide initiative to advance agile networking operations in NFV and SDN.
