Orchestration, Automation and Virtualisation: Focusing on the user BoF@TNC21

(Timezone - Europe/Amsterdam)


Ivana Golub, Mariaisabel Gandia Carriedo, Susanne Naegele-Jackson, Tim Chown (Jisc)

A successful digital transformation entails flexibility, efficiency, and self-service provisioning. In other words, a user-centric approach, which implies the usage of Orchestration, Automation and Virtualisation techniques (OAV).
The OAV team in GN4-3 created several resources to help the NRENs in their journey to this digital transformation through OAV (Training, Wiki, Terminology, Blueprint, Mapping of Architectures for NRENs..) The goal of this session is to gather ideas for future work, presenting the existing resources together with use cases from the NRENs. The BoF is an opportunity for NRENs to come together to agree on common actions.
