Perhaps this Superuser article helps you: In short, Tacker supports the lifecycle management of your VNFs.

Openstack is just a VIM (Virtualized Infrastructure Manager) , a backend to spin up the vm (the function of NFV components on vm plane) , Refer ETSI NFV Architecture.

Tacker is a vnf manager and acts on operations on vnf plane.( such as start/stop/pause/modify vnf components.)
