In this blog post we talk about about the SONATA Self-service.
The demand for virtualized versions of the network functions has increased and that the support for automating the deployment of these services on virtualized or even containerized infrastructure is needed in order to meet this demand.
SONATA facilitates the management and orchestration of the deployed services and functions through the use of plugins called Service Specific Managers (SSMs) and Function Specific Managers (FSMs).
Although this happens seamlessly to the end-users, a level of control of the deployed services should be provided to them. SONATA self-service portal has been developed to grant the end-user control (specifically, start and stop functions) of the running services. Such services are then added or removed from the user’s service chain.
