Network Cloud - Unicycle with SR-IOV

The Rover and Unicycle blueprints integrate the hardware configuration and remote OS deployment functionality of the Regional Controller with the Openstack deployment capabilities of Airship. These tools enable telco operators to take control of their infrastructure, by providing a declarative framework for defining and managing the life-cycle of the infrastructure.
