OpenLab proposes OpenSFA

Category: News

OpenSFA is intended as a step towards creating a globally-agreed upon standard for the Slice-based Facility Architecture, or SFA. At the time of writing, there exist a number of written SFA specifications and functioning implementations (and the two do not always match). They tend to be associated with given projects or national initiatives. While this initiative also has its origins in a specific context, we invite others to join with us in creating an specification that spans projects and national boundaries.For more information see the OpenSFA pages and Open Multinet.
