Providing network virtualization for OpenStack is a key use-case of the OpenDaylight project. OpenDaylight is an SDN controller which can manage both physical and virtual infrastructure, and provides advanced networking related features to network administrators.
With OpenDaylight Helium, released in October 2014, and Lithium, due for release in June 2015, OpenDaylight is now ready for use with OpenStack to provide a scalable, complete open source infrastructure as a service.
This presentation will guide attendees through Neutron's architecture, the process for deploying OpenDaylight and using Neutron's Modular Layer 2 to delegate network management to OpenDaylight, and finally to configure OpenDaylight to manage the Open vSwitch virtual switches on the physical hosts in your infrastructure.
This presentation is appropriate for people with a cursory knowledge of OpenStack Networking, who would like to scale their OpenStack deployment beyond that which is possible by managing Open vSwitch directly.
