Heather Kirksey, director, OPNFV said Danube melds a ton of work that has been done around NFV and brings DevOps methodologies to NFV. “It brings together full next-gen networking stacks in an open, collaborative environment. By harnessing work with upstream communities into an open, iterative testing and deployment domain, we’re delivering the capabilities that truly enable NFV,” Kirksey said.

The purpose of OPNFV was not to create a separate platform for NFV, but to integrate NFV features across the stack while identifying gapsa role that, with Danube, is clearly taking shape, the group stated.
