Subject: RE: [tosca] Groups - TOSCA-NFV-Profile v1.0 ToC proposal.zip uploaded

I very much like the direction of this new outline. It takes a big step towards making the document more readable, and it also does a great job in better aligning the Tosca NFV Profile with the abstractions defined by ETSI NFV.


As a potential additional improvement, I would recommend that we go even further and adopt an approach similar to what was done in the Simple Profile for YAML spec. As you know, in that document we built up Tosca concepts by starting from a simple “Hello World” example and gradually adding additional functionality. I believe the NFV Profile document could benefit from a similar build-up.


Specifically, I believe we could use Section 5 in Thinh’s outline for this purpose:


-          We would first introduce network service concepts:

o   Starting with a very simple example consisting of a single VNF with two external connection points

o   Then add a second VNF with a virtual link (and internal connection points) connecting these VNFs

o   Potentially adding physical network functions

o   Adding forwarding graph(s)

o   And any other concepts that might need to be introduced

-          Then we could move towards VNF descriptor templates:

o   Mapping a VNF onto just one single VDU

o   Adding additional VDUs with an internal virtual link

o   Specifying how these VDUs use virtual compute and virtual storage

o   Etc.


This would make Section 5 the “meat” of the document where most if not all of the NFV concepts are explained and described using TOSCA.


Sections 6 and 7 would then introduce the normative type definitions specified by the document (as shown in Thinh’s outline).
