The working assumption in the ZOOM project work was the need to support a hybrid operations model for PNF and VNF but with a clear transformation end-point of Virtualised and intent based managemen . The ZOOM work is now in the ODA Service and resource management workstream ( and the lifecycle aspects are in the ODA OLM workstream).The general approach proposed is to create management platforms that support hybrid working (supporting both detailed /declarative and intent based management) .This approach is documented in:TR262 Management Platform Blueprint and Application to Hybrid Infrastructure R17.5.1 ( previously called Hybrid Infrastructure managementDeployment examples were documented inTMF070 Hybrid Environment Implementation Blueprints Suite R17.5.1A catalysts Real Virtuality – Phase II was used to validate some of these concepts and developed a APITMF664 Resource Function Activation and Configuration API REST Specification R17.5.1which supports hybrid operations.This was extended with additional implementation focussed guides inTR255 Resource Function Activation and Configuration Suite R17.5.0 notablyTR255A Connectivity Patterns for Virtualization Management R17.5.1TR255B Specification Requirements for Resource Functions R17.5.1Note all of this is about management the PNF and VNF functionality which is different from ETSI NFV which focused solely on the management of the virtualisation aspects: i.e. lifecycle of NS/VNF ( software images) and their instantiation on Openstack ).
This is why the other commenter mentioned keeping VNF and IT virtualisation separate.Note in ETSI the Element management (EM) interfaces are out of scopeHowever EM functionality has been the primary focus of the ZOOM now ODA work -see IG1161 Overview: Agile Intent-based Resource Management in Hybrid Environments R17.5.1 for more more detail on relationship between ZOOM ODA work and ETSI NFV .Hope this helps.
