Hi Murali,

There are many unknows w.r.t ‘Service-VM’ and how it should from NFV perspective.
In my opinion it was not decided how the Service-VM framework should be.
Depending on this we at OpenStack also will have impact for ‘Service Chaining’.
Please find the mail attached w.r.t that discussion with NFV for ‘Service-VM + Openstack OVS related discussion”.

Hi Murali,

    There is already a ServiceVM project (Tacker), currently under development on stackforge:


    If you are interested in this topic, please take a look at the wiki page above and see if the project's goals align with yours. If so, you are certainly welcome to join the IRC meeting and start to contribute to the project's direction and design.

Hi keshava,

We would like contribute towards service chain and NFV

Could you please share the document if you have any related to service VM

The service chain can be achieved if we able to redirect the traffic to service VM using ovs-flows

in this case we no need to have routing enable on the service VM(traffic is redirected at L2).

All the tenant VM's in cloud could use this service VM services  by adding the ovs-rules in OVS
