[openstack-dev] [all][massively distributed][architecture]Coordination between actions/WGs

Hello, Ed,

Just as Peter mentioned,  "BT's NFV use cases e.g. vCPE, vCDN, vEPC, vIMS, MEC, IoT, where we will have compute highly distributed around the network (from thousands to millions of sites) ".  vCPE is only one use case, but not all. And the hardware facility to run "vCDN, vEPC, vIMS, MEC" is not in set-box or single hardware, even in current non-cloud way, it includes lots of blades, rack servers, chasises, or racks.

A whitepaper was just created "Accelerating NFV Delivery with OpenStack" https://www.openstack.org/telecoms-and-nfv/  

So it's part of a cloud architecture, the challenge is how OpenStack to run "regardless of size" and in "massively distributed" manner.

If it isn’t part of a cloud architecture, then it isn’t part of OpenStack’s mission. The ‘size’ qualifier relates to everything from massive clouds like CERN and Walmart down to small private clouds. It doesn’t mean ‘any sort of computing platform’; the focus is clear that we are an "Open Source Cloud Computing platform”.
