Cisco Elastic Services Controller (ESC)
Provides advanced VNF management functionality, including lifecycle management, dynamic provisioning and scaling of individual or groups of VNFs within a multitenant data center environment. Can create tenants, flavors and networks in OpenStack, as the constructs are required for VNF provisioning. ESC can orchestrate VNFs within a virtual infrastructure domain, for example OpenStack or VMware. Once VNF is provisioned, ESC will monitor the VNF leveraging ICMP, SNMP or custom monitors for auto-recovery and elasticity. When combined with the NSO enabled by Tail-f, it provides a powerful NFV solution. It also interoperates with any standards based NFV orchestration system.
