1. OPNFV Fuel Release Notes

1.1. Abstract

This document provides the release notes for Iruya release with the Fuel deployment toolchain.

Starting with Gambia release, both x86_64 and aarch64 architectures are supported at the same time by the fuel codebase.

1.2. License

All Fuel and “common” entities are protected by the Apache License 2.0.

1.3. Important Notes

This is the OPNFV Iruya release that implements the deploy stage of the OPNFV CI pipeline via Fuel.

Fuel is based on the MCP installation tool chain. More information available at Mirantis Cloud Platform Documentation.

The goal of the Iruya release and this Fuel-based deployment process is to establish a lab ready platform accelerating further development of the OPNFV infrastructure.

Carefully follow the installation instructions.

1.4. Summary

Iruya release with the Fuel deployment toolchain will establish an OPNFV target system on a Pharos compliant lab infrastructure. The current definition of an OPNFV target system is OpenStack Queens combined with an SDN controller, such as OpenDaylight. The system is deployed with OpenStack High Availability (HA) for most OpenStack services.

Fuel also supports non-HA deployments, which deploys a single controller, one gateway node and a number of compute nodes.

Fuel supports x86_64, aarch64 or mixed architecture clusters.

Furthermore, Fuel is capable of deploying scenarios in a baremetal, virtual or hybrid fashion. virtual deployments use multiple VMs on the Jump Host and internal networking to simulate the baremetal deployment.

For Iruya, the typical use of Fuel as an OpenStack installer is supplemented with OPNFV unique components such as:

As well as OPNFV-unique configurations of the Hardware and Software stack.

This Iruya artifact provides Fuel as the deployment stage tool in the OPNFV CI pipeline including:

  • Automated (Jenkins, RTD) documentation build & publish (multiple documents);

  • Automated (Jenkins) build & publish of Salt Master Docker image;

  • Automated (Jenkins) deployment of Iruya running on baremetal or a nested hypervisor environment (KVM);

  • Automated (Jenkins) validation of the Iruya deployment
