In this Session we will have a look at the Networking aspects in OpenStack.
We will start off by giving a general intro into Networking options in OpenStack, including a little history repeating of nova-networking. A comparison of possible network implementations like ‚good old VLANs‘, Overlay Networking and Network Fabric approaches will be given. We will then go into details on Neutron, and look at the Neutron ML2 OVS Mechanism Driver (OVS reference implementation) and the new upcoming network solution for OpenStack – OVN.
